The CPA chess team has had a busy past few weekends, with the team competing in the State Team Championship and two seniors, Justin Fink and Jonathan Capel, competing in the State Individual Championship.
The team performed admirably during the team championship, scoring 3/5 to tie for 5th place in state, Chandler Prep’s highest ever finish in state. Along the way the team narrowly pulled off a win against the defending state champions Basis Chandler, and sophomore Matt Brown scored a perfect 5/5 to earn the best 3rd board award!
Chandler Prep’s two senior participants turned in memorable performances in the individual championship. Jonathan, playing in his first state championship, scored a solid 3/6 points. Justin, playing in his final state championship, scored an outstanding 5/6 points to finish as the official 2017 AIA State Chess Runner-Up! This is an outstanding accomplishment!
