Checkmate: HMS chess team captures the state title
On Saturday, the HMS chess team competed in the 2017 Team Finals Tennessee State Scholastics Championship. They won and HMS is now the State Team Champion. The team went 4-0 in match play and in addition, the team had a perfect score of 16-0 for each of the individual player's games.The team may have also made history as the only school to compete in the 29 year old tournament that compiled an undefeated record in the elementary section; they are presently confirming with the U.S. Chess Federation.
This may also be the first year that HMS competed in this event. The students took the title from Grahamwood, another Memphis elementary school, which previously held the title for 5 straight years. Grahamwood has a 5 day a week after school program.
Congratulations to the HMS chess team and their coach for winning the state title!
