North Shore Senior High Chess Champs

        The North Shore Senior High School Chess Team competed in the 2011 U.S. Junior Open Chess Championships held at the Hobby Airport Hilton from Friday, July 22 - Sunday, July 24. This three-day event brings together the top chess talent in the country. "This was the toughest competition in which we have ever competed," stated Robert L. Myers, Chess Club Coach/Sponsor. North Shore Senior High is proud to have a pair first place winners: Adrian Patterson, a junior at NSSHS, and Jasmine Powell who is a senior.
        Astonishingly, these are not the only successes of the North Shore Senior High Chess Club. This group of students started competing in October 2010. Since that first competition they have won a total of 78 trophies, including 1st place in every tournament except one. In that tournament they received 3rd place honors.
