Mini-Teams, Dec 2014

Mini Teams 2014 saw 38 teams of 3 or 114 players competing at Interlake High School in Bellevue in an epic 5-round-Swiss tournament Saturday December 6. Students competed from middle and high schools all over Washington state.

Redmond, seeking to repeat, led by twin National Masters Daniel and Samuel He, once again took care of business, each finishing with perfect 5s to lead the Redmond team to 12.5/15 and the repeat championship!

Two other individuals scored perfect 5s on the day, namely Interlake board 1 Faris Gulamali and Skyline player Kevin Zhao! Other undefeated individuals were Sangeeta Dhingra, ICS board 1, Noah Yeo, Overlake board 1, only drawing each other in the final round, and Ferndale player Will Rianda.

Kudos to all on a great tournament! See report.
