With a group of (25) twenty five Hoboken students participating in a room filled
With over 250 participants from New York , our children accomplished what they always have accomplished
in the past,
In the K-3rd grade section, Mema Khazanov, Ansul
kaware, and Arpan Gupta , medaled for their scores of 2.5 points (out of 4) 2 wins, 1 draw and only one defeat. Yash
tewari with a 1.5 score
However the star of this Section was Jeramiah Narramore. Jeramiah won 3 out of 4 games and placing in the top section.
The true success was our team scores. With Schools
from all over New York City schools competing, and Plaques
being awarded to only the top two finishers, two of our groups tied for second place. Both our Newport group and the Mustard Seed School won second place.
Our results in the rated section were even better!
With 5 players from the Cordero
School in Jersey City , courtesy of our Newport group, their scores were even more astonishing.
