Angelica Berrios (1800) won the Brooklyn High School Chess Championship today, beating 4 Murrow High School students, and leading IS 318 to our first place team finish. Angelica also recently won the National Girls 16 and Under Championship (she's 14)
Jasmine Fermin (1405) won the Brooklyn Junior High Chess Championship, also leading 318 to our first place finish in that section (ok, I should mention that there was an eight way tie for first individually, but all eight students were from 318. Jasmine won the blitz playoff.).
