Our middle school chess club hosted a tournament against Milton Academy on Saturday, May 18. The type of tournament that they played was the Swiss System, which enables all students to play every round. Students from both teams played with great focus and determination. In between rounds, though, there was a lot of joyful chatter between players on both teams. It was the epitome of a friendly competition! BDS may have lost first, second, and third places to Milton, but we were not discouraged! The students are excited to continue to hone their chess strategy work in our remaining Friday club meetings.

This is the first time BDS has hosted a chess tournament in recent history, and it was a student-initiated event. Copeland Maier ’25 came up with the idea and took leadership in all stages of planning. All club members contributed to putting this event together during our weekly club meetings. The students who participated were seventh graders Copeland Maier, Jack Ward, Jun Murakami, Edwin Voiland, and Sohan Shah, and sixth graders Aman Singleton, Murilo Santos, and Evan Bae.
