Alhambra Chess makes quite a showing

Fall means football, volleyball, and more, but did you know that chess is also an AIA sport.  Alhambra has a very active chess team, and has already seen action, playing three matches at Thunderbird High School, August 25, and winning two.  Five team members play in each match. Team members are Adan Lucena, Tuan Nguyen, Raquel Orosco, Jimmy Do, Obeth Martinez, Mya Dominguez, Mia Pena, Javier Placido.  A state team tournament and individual tournament are played in November.
