Jack, a first grader at Beaufort Academy, placed 12th in the nation. Kevin, a third grader also at Beaufort Academy, placed ninth in the nation. Both boys had the highest score for their team. The BA team was National Champion runner-up, missing the national title by only 3 points. These young men have shown the nation that South Carolina is a chess state.
