The Manzano Middle School chess team has returned victoriously from the National Junior High Chess Championships in Atlanta, Ga.

The team brought home these trophies:

>> Ninth-place in the K-9 National Junior High Chess Championship;

>> 11th-place in the K-9 under 1,250 National Junior High Chess Championship; and,

>> Seventh-place in K-9 National Junior High Chess Blitz Championship.
