Posted on 06/02/2017

The first annual Harlandale ISD Chess Tournament for secondary schools was a great success.

A total of 34 middle school and high school students participated in a six-round tournament at the McCollum HS gym.

The players hailed from Kingsborough MS, Terrell Wells MS, STEM ECHS, Harlandale HS and McCollum HS. Boys and girls competed against each other from grades sixth through twelfth.

Tournament participants were selected by the chess club sponsor from each campus. According to McCollum HS Chess Club Sponsor Edmundo Garza, they plan to host another tournament next year.

Communities in Schools provided the chess boards, pieces, trophies, snacks and drinks.
