CCL has a clean sweep at the Ohio High School and Middle School Championships
In the Ohio High School Championship, CCL players Vikram Srivastava and Maggie Feng tied for 1st place with 5-1 scores and are co-champions. Vikram won their individual game, gaining 1st place on tiebreaks, and plans on representing Ohio at the National Denker tournament. Interestingly, Vikram won this event as a 9th grader, didn’t compete as a 10th grader and has now won it as an 11th grader. I guess that many of you are hoping that he does not return next year.
In the Middle School Championship, CCLian Chris Shen came in clear 1st place with a 5.5 – .5 score, only yielding a very hard fought draw to Vincent Baker in the last round. Chris plans on attending the Barber tournament. There was a 3-way tie for 2nd place with 5-1 scores amongst CCLians: Vincent Baker, Justin Storn, and Dae San Kim.
With Victoria Baker’s win at the Ohio All-Girls, CCL will represent Ohio at all of the key National Scholastic tournaments held during the beginning of the US Open.
