The New Trier Chess Team finished 2nd at the State Tournament in February 2020, their best finish since 2005. New Trier won all seven rounds in the two-day tournament, which was held at the Peoria Civic Center, scoring 375 individual points. Congratulations to team members David Peng, Roger Li, Adrian Calinescu, Sawyer Harris, Sarah Lin, Zach Marshall, Justin Weinzweig, Max Malecki, Mason Werner, Jeffrey Huang, and to Coaches Matt Mersch and Daniel Kim. The Foundation provided funding support for the team to purchase chess sets and clocks to prepare for competition, and shirts to promote team spirit.
