It was a big weekend for GA Chess! Helena Servin-DeMarrais '22, Beatrice Low '24, and Serena Evans '26 competed in the National All Girls' Chess Championship held in Chicago and returned to campus with some new hardware—a first place team trophy in the Under 18 division.
Over three days, each girl played six grueling matches, before clinching the team award. Despite being younger than most of their competitors, they all placed in the top 15 of the Under 18 division.
GA's chess program begins with classroom instruction in Group I, with the Lower School Chess Club meeting every Tuesday morning. GA hosts two widely attended chess tournaments each year and GA girls are active participants in both regional and national chess tournaments.
