Saturday, May 1 was Match Day 5 (Rounds 9 & 10) of the Spring 2021 PCSAA Middle School Chess League.
First and second place remain the same from last week with DC International School and BASIS DC comfortable in their positions. The intense struggle for third place continues, however, with Howard University Middle School for Mathematics and Science and Imagine Hope Community Charter School separated by only .5 match points (and .5 board points, too). Statesmen College Preparatory Academy For Boys racked up another match point, but couldn’t narrow the gap with our third place contenders. With two match days (or 4 rounds) still to go anything could happen.
Good luck to all the teams!
