On March 19th, middle school students from CMIT competed in the Maryland State Chess Championships in Baltimore, Maryland. As a team, the Tigers placed 4th in the State in their middle school division! For Maryland Chess Association Tournaments, a full school team consists of four players, however, our three-player team still came away with a great finish! The team members were: Damon Edwards, Phillip Nissen and Ian Kaba. More great news – individually, 8th grader, Phillip Nissen placed 7th in the State!
