The Mission San Jose Elementary School chess dynasty was extended another year at the 2012 Calchess State Scholastic Championship. MSJE, again, swept all the championship sections for elementary school aged children. Several of the Mission San Jose Elementary players also won individual State Championship titles or finished in the top ten of their section. The MSJE Chess Team head coach and founder Joe Lonsdale summed the tournament up by stating that it was “the best state meet ever by any team.”
In future posts, I will detail some our players individual accomplishments
During the summer months Mission San Jose Elementary hosts a summer chess camp open to any school aged chess players. The Mission San Jose Elementary Chess Club is run under the auspices of the Torres Chess and Music Academy.
