In action against regional teams at Trinity Catholic in Hutchinson, both high school and Junior High teams from TMP came away victorious, capturing both team and individual honors in both high school and Junior High divisions! The Junior High team, consisting of eleven players, jumped off to an early lead, and holding it until the end, dominating the competition with a total team score of 21 points out of a possible 24. The nearest opposing team, from Reno County, finished an insurmountable six points behind at 15. Individually, TMP players finished in six of the top seven places. 8th Grader Cade Schlautman topped the list with six wins and no losses, winning his last round game against team-mate, 8th Grader Ethan Gibson, in a forced pairing due to TMP's insurmountable lead. Ethan would take 3rd on tiebreaks. Four other TMP players would round out the top seven: 8th Graders Evan Staab, 4th with 5 points, Dylan Billinger, 5th with 5, Zack Billinger, 6th with 5, and Colby Schneider, 7th with 4.5. The remaining five members of the team would also score well: 6th Grader Garrett Billinger, in only his second tournament, would place 11th with 4 points, 7th Grader Caden Pinkney, 16th, and 8th Grader James Dickman, 17th, both with 3.5 points, 6th Grader Alex Unrein, 25th with 3 points, and 6th Grader Braden Unrein, 32nd with 2.5 points. 50 players from eight schools competed. In a much smaller high school division, with only 23 players from six schools competing, a TMP team of only two would also lead throughout the event, finishing with 11.5 points holding off a last-minute challenge from a seven member team from Hutchinson Trinity, who finished with 9. Leading TMP was 10th Grader Blaise Staab, finishing 1st with 6 wins, followed closely by 10th Grader Eli Stein, who was 2nd with 5.5 points. Congratulations to our Chess Team!
