Students from the Julia R. Masterman school chess team in Philadelphia took the K-9 championship title at the National Junior High Chess Championships held in Atlanta, Georgia over the week-end. The title is the highest awarded for their age group in the country. Over 1300 young people attended the event from 38 states. The fabulous five chess team members were: Angel Hernandez-Camen, Srisa Chongolkar, Shira Moolten, Torin Kuehnle and Nalin Khanna. They were coached by Steve Shutt and Greg Shahade. Srisa Changolkar also came in 6th place and Angel Hernandez-Camen came in 7th place in the individual competition. The same team won the K-8 national championship in 2013.
