Eighteen DC elementary school students turned up for the DC K-5 Championship qualifier this past Saturday, May 14th, to determine who would have the honor of representing the District at this summer’s national Rockefeller Tournament of Elementary School Champions. Congratulatons to Lenox Serrette who won the tournament with victories in all five rounds.
We were happy to see that, among the field of participants, there were ten children playing in their first nationally rated competition. Playing in important tournaments is the fastest and surest way to improving your playing strength, no matter the result.
