Fellow BCF Scholastic players,

BCF Scholastics is growing! This was an incredible tournament with a record number of 31 players. Thanks to all the players who came, including especially the non-Member players who allowed us to have enough to hold a non-USCF Section, albeit a small one.

Thanks also to Dmitriy Barash who entered his son Jan and was of invaluable help as Assistant TD. Finally, thanks to all the parents who helped keep the flow of the tournament running smoothly.

Gordon Redwine and Shouri Mosaliganti have made huge strides as Scholastic players this year, and I look forward to seeing them enter the higher ranks of the MA Scholastic field. Congratulations to newcomer Arjun Singhania for his outstanding success in the 8 & Under.

14 & Under:
1st: Gordon Redwine
2nd: Michael Eberle (tied)
3rd: Jesse Shang, Ella Li

8 & Under:
1st; Arjun Singhania
2nd: Shouri Mosaliganti (tied)
3rd: Arav Mapakshi

1st: Varun Kumar
2nd: Advaith Shivkumar
3rd: Harshanth Balamuguran, Adya Mapakshi (tied)

We hope to see many of you back again on 8/12 for the BCF August Scholastics. See you over the board.

Nicholas P. Sterling, Ph.D.
BCF, Scholastics TD
