2013 Scholastic Tournament


                On November 9th, 2013, 87 players met to decide the 2013 Greater Philadelphia Scholastic Championship.  In the K-12 section, no one escaped unscathed, but Teddy Willis, was nicked for only a draw and won the event with a 3.5 – 0.5 score.  Three Pocono Mountain East High School players tied for 2nd – 4th with a 3.0 – 1.0 score.  They were Andy Weng, Sean Crowley, and Alex Quirindongo.  Pocono Mountain East High School won the team competition with a score of 11.5. 

                In the K-6 section, Jeffrey Gong and David Sang, both of Skyview Elementary, scored a perfect 4 – 0 with Gong taking the title on tiebreakers.  Ram Singh finished 3rd with a score of 3.5 – 0.5.  Skyview having two players with a perfect score, it is not surprising that they won the team category with 14.0 points. 

                In the K – 3 section, Aneesh Raparla (for the 2nd time) and Chase Vitulich tied for first with perfect scores.  Seven players tied for 3rd to 9th with 3 points.  The top team was Hillside Elementary with 7.5 points.
