Congratulations to the MME 6th grade chess team who finished 4th in the final round of the School Chess Association (SCA) Statewide Scholastic Championship.
Team members included Nathan Singh, Prathul Rao, Julia Vlandimirov and Juliana Roesner. As only the individual scores of the top four finishers from each of the 32 competing schools count toward a team's overall team score, each of the four members of the MME team had to play extremely well in the tournament to achieve their 4th place finish out of 32 teams. Juliana also took individual honors as the top girl place winner in the tournament, finishing 19th out of 179 competitors.
