Ms. Murray’s MSP Chess Club is all about chess fanatics finding a haven.
The students are serious about finding the perfect strategy to win a match. The club recently finished their first sets of tournaments. The students learned what a real chess tournament match is like, and they got a much better grasp on chess thanks to the teaching of the club’s founder, Christian Couvillion.
Over all, MSP’s Chess Club has had a great first year!
