New York State Scholastic Championships
Joshua Colas won the High School Championship with a score of 5.5. In the last round he beat Nicolas Checa. Joshua and Nicolas frequently play each other Monday or Wednesday night at the club. With them being the number one and two seeds in the tournament, it comes as no surprise that the High School Championship would come down to the last round match between the two of them. Nicolas ended out 3rd on tie-break. Six players finished with five points.
Joshua will be representing New York State this summer in The Denker Tournament of High School Champions in Phoenix during the US Open. That will be one of a number of tournaments he'll be playing in over the summer.
This week Joshua will be in Chicago playing in his first IM round robin event. Good luck Joshua! We hope you'll get that first IM norm.

Hopefully Mother Nature will start to be kinder to us. Thanks to the seven players who braved last Wednesday's slop to come out and play. It gave me an opportunity to remind myself why I need a longer time control. :-)
