2022 State Scholastic Champions are Crowned!

It seems that it takes a perfect score to win the Minnesota State Scholastic Championships. At least that was the scenario for the 2022 Championships completed at the University of St. Thomas on March 12-13.

In the K-12 section it was NM Linden Lee scoring a perfect 6-0 in a 100-player section that was paced by 5 masters. In the K-8 section it was NM Troy Cavanah outclassing the 56-player field with another perfect 6-0. In the K-5 section Alan Xu defeated Vihaan Pendse in a time scramble in round 5 to finish a perfect 5-0. In the K-3 it was Ksenija Matus following in her older sister's footsteps to win with a perfect 4-0. Congratulations to all of the winners and contestants in this well run scholastic chess event.

For the team results it does seem that depth matters. The two teams with the most players won the K-12 section (Wayzata) and the K-8 section (Nicollet). Congratulations to the coaches of these teams for consistently bringing excellent chess talent to the state championship tournament.

More results will be posted as information comes available.
