Opportunity: HMS Chess Team Wins Championship Chess Match

A huge congratulations to the HMS Chess Team for competing in the championship match on March 1, 2017.  After a very intense two hours, Hershey Middle School came away with the victory with a score of 11-5.  This win brings an end to their season, and after several exciting months of competition, Hershey finished this year with a fantastic undefeated record of 11 wins and 0 losses!  A special shoutout goes to Calista Huesch who played in the number two position all year long and was the only person on the Hershey team to never lose a single match throughout the entire season.  Congratulations to Calista for this impressive accomplishment.  And many congratulations to all 8 of the varsity players who were part of a great season this year.  The varsity members this year were Manny Didia from 6th grade, Cam Cooney from 7th grade, Ani Rao from 6th grade, Dhevin Karunanayaka from 6th grade, Scott Niu from 8th grade, Anthony Eichman from 8th grade, Calista Huesch from 6th grade, and Rocco Huesch from 8th grade.  If you see any of these students throughout the day today, be sure to congratulate them on a phenomenal finish and a fine season!
