On February 4, over 80 players met in the February Freeze tournament in Wayne. The Championship section was won by Robert Pattillo, who scored a perfect 4-0 score. 2nd through 5th place with a 3-1 score are: Isaac Tshudy, Praneeth Ramesh, Adam Giovanetti, and Tom McKenxie-Smith. The top team was Wyomissing High School.
The K-12 U700 section saw a huge shock as the lowest rated player in that section, Miguel Santos, was the only player to go 4-0. Caleb Zhang and Lucas Schlesinger were just behind Miguel, having tied each other and scoring 3 earlier wins, so both went 3.5-0.5. The Philadelphia School earned the team trophy.
Tke 45 person K-3 U400 section was led by a large influx of unrated players. We look forward to these players returning for many more events. There were 4 4-0 scores. Sean Li, a former camp student, won first on tie breaks. Second through fourth respectively were Parth Mody, Frank Lin, and Alex Wang. Pocopson Elementary won the team event.
