Last Friday, Henry Xiu ’22 and Kevin Liu ’21 participated in the first-ever virtual independent school Chess Tournament organized by our very own Mr. Jason Jugoon. In addition to CDS, Appleby, Crescent and UTS signed on for a total of 16 competitors. Henry (Team Captain) and Kevin placed 9th and 8th respectively, but Appleby swept the podium.
According to Mr. Jugoon, “the real victory was the establishment of a league of teams that play chess.” In fact, a second tournament is scheduled for this evening with 20 competitors competing from four schools, Crescent, UCC, SAC and CDS: including Henry, Kevin, Ethan MacDonald ’22 and Wolfgang Van Gulik ’24 pictured in this photo. May the best team win!
