NY State Scholastic Chess Championships in Saratoga Springs

This past weekend, the NEST+m chess team competed in the NY State Scholastic Championships in Saratoga Springs. We were the most successful team overall, including the following results in championship sections:

K-12: Clear 1st Place - High School State Champions! Team members, with the top 4 scorers listed in bold

Isaac Barayev (2nd place NY State High School)
Mubassar Uddin (10th place overall)
Jack Wen
Markus Pond
Teseo Torras
Anita Maksimiuk
Elliot Witdorchic

Going into the last round, we were in 3rd place, behind Edward R. Murrow, the defending champions, and a top team from Rochester. All four scorers delivered key wins, including Isaac beating James Black, Murrow's top player and former national champion. This is the best result in the history of our high school program, ahead of the 9th and 10th Grade National Championships.

K-9: Third Place! Team members, with the top 4 scorers listed in bold

Maury Ahram
Steven Yurgel
Jacob Barayev
Patrick Flood

David Witdorchic

7th Grader Maury Ahram, the youngest member of the team, led the way with an undefeated 4.5/6 MVP performance, gaining some 50 rating points in the process.

K-6: Second Place! Team members, with the top 4 scorers listed in bold

Aidan Ahram
Eric Chan
Alex Harris

Kayla Leung (tied with Mario)
Mario Tutuncu-Macias (tied with Kayla)
Ryan Chen
Karthik Tambar

Aidan Ahram and Eric Chan both delivered an outstanding 5/6 score to lead the team.

K-3: Clear 1st Place - Primary State Champions! Team members, with the top 4 scorers listed in bold

Charles Hua
Jordan Leung
Davis Zong
Eric Tang

Charles, Jordan, and Davis all scored 5/6 to finish in 2nd, 3rd, and 4th place overall. The top of the individual standings make this section look like a local NEST+m event. We won by 3 full points, a huge margin of victory for a major tournament.

K-1: 5th Place. Team members, with the top 4 scorers listed in bold

Dylan Ma
Maya Nozaki
Patrick Tang

Victor Dotov (tied with Kyler)
Kyler Chiu (tied with Victor)
Oliver Hua

Dylan Ma led the way with an outstanding 5/6 score. This team worked very hard and was in first place, but slipped after a tough last round.

We are the Manhattan Class B-2 Boys Basketball Conference Champions!

PSAL Basketball Update: 


Boys Basketball
We are the Manhattan Class B-2 Boys Basketball Conference Champions with a 13-1 league record and a record of 18-2 in all contests. The boys were also the champions of the Millennium Thanksgiving Tournament representing teams from Manhattan, the Bronx and Brooklyn.

As a result of our stellar regular season accomplishments, PSAL invited us to participate in the Class B Showcase for the top B teams in the city. We defeated a team from Queens by 16 points in our showcase game. The team has now made the playoffs in four of the last five years.

The next step for the boys is the citywide playoffs which begin February 26.

Girls Basketball
The girls finished the regular season in second place in Manhattan B with an 11-4 record and made the playoffs. The next step for the girls is the citywide playoffs which begin February 26.

Both coaches would like to thank all the students, teachers and administrators who have supported the teams this season. It means so much to the student-athletes when they get your support and your loud voices at our home games.

K-12 National Chess Championships at Orlando, FL Results

* We are the 10th Grade National Champions! Congratulations to Mubassar Uddin, Markus Pond, Jack Wen, and Teseo Torras. This team has been phenomenally successful in the last two years.

* 2nd Place in 3rd grade: Congratulations to Davis Zong, Charles Hua, Robert Shibata, Eric Tang, Jordan Leung, and Tejas Siddaramaiah. Special thanks to Gina Hsu who inspired her students with her support from afar.

* 3rd place in 7th grade: Congratulations to Maury Ahram, Pyke Turnbow, Tej Telymonde, Biko Smith, and Eliott Leinweber

* 4th place in 6th grade: Congratulations to Alex Harris, Aidan Ahram, Kayla Leung, Darren Jung, and Mario Tutuncu-Macias

* 4th place in 9th grade: Congratulations to Jacob Barayev, Steven Yurgel, and William Chin

* 5th place in 11th grade: Congratulations to Isaac Barayev, Anita Maksimiuk, and Elliot Witdorchic

We also fielded teams in the 1st and 8th grade sections, and had individual players participating in 2nd, 4th, and 5th grade.

Our next major tournaments are the City and State Championship events, in mid January and late February respectively. These will help us prepare for the end of year National Championships, in which students play in grade blocks (i.e, K-3, K-12, etc).

I want to put in a special word of thanks to Mr. Yusah and Ms. Mai. They were incredibly proactive, helpful chaperones who made it possible for me to devote my full attention to opening preparation and game analysis. As a result, we caught many players from other teams in our preparation. Mr. Yusah also stood in the tournament room and updated the last round 10th grade standings for me in "real-time", adjusting them every time a game ended. If one of our 10th graders had been offered a draw, this information would have allowed me to advise them on the best course of action.

Thank you again, and I hope to bring more good news from the City and State Championships!

Take care,
Matan Prilleltensky
