2008 South Regional Results

The 2008 South Regional tournament exceeded expectations ( 560 students) as we continue to learn and strive to improve this premier tournament. The tournament will always be held on the last weekend in January. Authentic assessments (tournaments) are the true measuring stick for students. The competition was fierce especially in the K-3 section where Olympia Heights, University School and Amelia Earhart all scored 16 points. Not to be out done, the K-5 section also had three way tie for first place with 16 points including Flagami, Olympia Heights and Biscayne. Complete results can be seen at http://www.floridachess.org/ or http://www.bocachess.com/
