NCWHS Varsity Chess team finished first in the central Illinois chess league division. Individual awards are also awarded based on points earned by players during the season, and two NCWHS players were in the top 5. Joseph Kessinger-12-earned first place for the league and Clayton Davis-12- earned 4th place overall. The team will be playing in the IHSA state sectionals tourney on 1/26, hoping to continue to state on 2/8-9. The team will be graduating 7 seniors who have been an integral part of the team.
