On March 14, the Divine Savior Academy Chess Team traveled to Orlando for the Florida State Chess Tournament. The K12 team of high school chess players left on Sunday, March 16 as the K12 Florida State Co-Champions. DSA???s K12 Team will travel to San Diego, California in April to defend their 2013 K12 National Championship Title at Nationals.
DSA???s chess program had 32 chess players at the tournament, the most players from any one school in Florida. This is due partly to the fact that DSA was the only school to qualify all four of its chess teams (K1, K5, K8 and K12). Divine Savior Academy boasts one of the largest chess programs in the state of Florida, with over one hundred players in its chess program.
Chess Coach Gilberto Luna comments, ???I am very proud of our team and the way that they fought in this tournament. Our high school team made an incredible last round comeback. They were down three out of a possible four points going into the last round. They really pulled through and won six out of their seven matches. In the end, we ended up catching the leading team for first place and became the 2014 K12 Co-Champions. It was a great experience, and I would like to congratulate all of our K1, K5, K8, and K12 players.???
