Grahamwood Elementary’s competitive Chess Club under the leadership of Jonathan Beatty participated in the Tennessee State Chess Tournament in Nashville last weekend and came home winners! The elementary team of Raymond Cui, Ehman Sandhu, Shubh Hosad, and Max Ding took 1st place in the state. The primary team of Ashish Kalaga, Gurnoor Sandhu, Marc Denny, and Armaan Singh won 3rd place in the state. Jonathan says these achievements are nothing new, “For 9 years straight, Grahamwood’s teams have won 1st place in the primary division. I wish it was 10 this year but I am proud of our Grahamwood chess players.” Way to go Jonathan and Grahamwood’s Chess team!
