Metro Tech Chess Closes Out Season in Winning Fashion

Posted by Community Relations on 5/3/2016

Metro Tech Chess closed out its season in winning fashion.   Metro returned as Region Champs and defended their State Champion title in the Canyon Athletic Association.  Metro Tech fielded five full teams and two finished 1st and 2nd in the CAA Chess State Championship on April 18.  Team Rook was champion, and Team Paladin was 2nd..     In the Individual Championships April 25, Metro’s  Jonny Lopez was 2nd Board Champion, Juan Pena took 2nd in 1st Board play. Coach Ricardo Gardea had only four seniors this year, so Metro Tech will enter the AIA Chess competition next year with much depth and past success.
