PS 33 Girls Win at Chess | A recently formed girls chess team from the Big Apple proved they were no mere pawns, when they traveled to the Windy City to compete at the All-Girls National Championships chess tournament (April 22–24). The PS 33 Chelsea Prep students came back from Chicago with the Under 8 Division Second Place trophy (almost as tall as the girls). Flanked by Chess NYC coaches Angel Lopez (left) and Russell Makofsky are Aliya Saldanha-Suri, Charlotte Peterson, Abigail Yang, Simone Morden, and Rose Morden. The girls will be sharpening their skills over the summer, by attending chess camps and participating in tournaments throughout the city.
