The chess club, coached by Capt. Greg Holman (pictured far left) and Senior Chief Shields (pictured far right), finished up the year with a three-week tournament (our own miniaturized version of March Madness). Ten cadets competed against each other and established a ranking. Those cadets are Owen Gallagher, Derek Walter, Cadence Tarbox, Abraham Aitzhanov, Christoph Lin, Edijs Welsh, Nathan Campbell, Andrew Wawak, Robert Mott, and Mason Major. The final match was between Cadets Cadence Tarbox and Owen Gallagher. After a fine meal of pizza, cookies, and soft drinks, Cadet Owen Gallagher of Band and Staff Company reigned supreme and became the 2021 Chess Champ.
