Chess Tournament

“{Chess} Is a fun way to get people to focus more…It helps you solve problems faster,” said Eric Murphy, a junior who participated in the tournament.


On January 24, the Strategy Games Club met at Fremont so they could travel to West Jordan High School to compete in a chess tournament.


When they got to the tournament, there were people from grades K-12. Each player plays four people on a timed chess match.


“People were all preparing to play their A-game,” said Matthew Johnson, participant.  


“If you win, you play someone who won. If you lost, you played someone who lost,” said Murphy.


Fremont did pretty well over all.


“Five of us won trophies…and two of us won medals. Medals are just a participation award,” explained Zach Billings, vice-president.
