S/H Wins State Chess Championship

In the 31-player K2 division, Stuart Hall came from behind after a faltering first round to eventually overcome Lusher and the host school, TS Cooley, to win first place in the Louisiana State Scholastic Chess Championship. 

Individually, John Michael Maristany '22 finished in 4th place; Ryan Avin '21, 5th place; Patrick Avin '23, 10th place; Connor Rooney '22, 12th place; Aidan Hollard '21, 16th place; Charlie Avin '22, 17th place; and Devanand Brickman '23, 22nd place. In the difficult K8 section, Stuart Hall veteran Garrison Trahant '16 finished in 7th place.

Congratulations to our Stuart Hall Chess Team and Coach Jeff on their wonderful achievement and an accomplished year!
