Cornerstone’s Washington-Parks Academy chess team is making great strides this year, winning three of their four tournaments so far this season.
The WPA team, coached by Rashaun Maddox, plays in the City League series. “Last year, we finished in 3rd place. This year, our goal is to be first,” Maddox said. The team has ten members from first grade to eighth grade.
Chess is an important extra-curricular activity at Cornerstone. Next month, we’ll provide an update on the Jefferson-Douglass team. Best of luck to our chess teams!
