With superb spring-like weather on Saturday (Feb. 25th), one hundred seventy four of the State's brightest young chess players met at Charles Pinckney Elementary School in Mt. Pleasant SC to compete for trophies, prizes, rating points, and titles. After a grueling five rounds of play, Michael Burrell (shown right) emerged as our new South Carolina State High School Scholastic Champion of 2017!!!!!! Congratulations Michael!!! Michael finished with 4.5/5 points drawing Aidan Fejzulai (4.0/5) in an exciting fifth and final round game that determined first place.
