EMGE CHESS TEAM TAKES 2nd PLACE in their Conference Tournament!
On Saturday, March 14th, 2015 the Emge chess team attended the end of the year tournament. While they were pleased the team finished third this season, they knew going into the tournament, they finally had a chance to place and bring home a trophy.
They had a rough start tying their first match, but lead by Michael Koziatek (5-2) and Josh Peyman (5-1-1)…they ended up beating the second place team Central 8.5- 6.5. This was the motivation they needed. They went on a run of five straight victories.
They heading into the final match of the day versus Belle Valley’s team, which had not been defeated all season. Emge came at Belle Valley with everything they had, but fell short of the prize. Congrats to Emge’s chess club who will be bringing home with them the 2nd place trophy this year. This was no easy feat.
Michael was our MVP playing first chair every match and winning so many crucial games. Our 8th graders feel vindicated after four years of trying to get a trophy. These young men their carer at Emge on the best possible note. Hats off to our 8th grade players.
We are very proud of the boys and they can’t wait to show of the trophy which they worked so hard to earn this year.
