Day One of the Calchess State Grade Level Chess Championship has concluded. Once again, students attending Torres Chess and Music Academy classes dominated this prestigious event. On Saturday December 4, 2010, Calchess named the championship teams for grades one, two, and three. All three titles were awarded to the Torres Chess and Music Academy program at Mission San Jose Elementary School in Fremont. Hopefully grades four, five and six can continue the dominance when their event concludes on Sunday.
Individual students taught by Chris Torres also fared well. Chief among these top performers are Milind Maiti (Kindergarten) and Ben Rood (first grade). Both had a perfect 5/5 score for the day and both were awarded the title of State Champion by Calchess. Milin Maiti and Ben Rood now must quickly prepare for the National Grade Level Championship which is in Florida this coming weekend.
Don’t forget to sign your children up for the Torres Chess and Music Academy’s Fremont Winter Chess Camp!
