The Team, which was comprised of ICA coach Eugene Sokolovsky, Gregory Gabovich, Timothy Hoang, and Ethan Klein claimed top honors as the best team with an average rating under 1800 points.

ICA Student Body Invades New Jersey State Grade Championships!
As is always the case, many ICA students attended this past New Jersey State championship and as always did the school proud by notching up quite decent results in each grade section. First up, we had Joshua Lerman, a first grader, score three points out of a total five. His losses came to the first, and second place finishers, and that was enough to earn him sixth place overall.

ICA ACCOMPLISHMENTS
Ok here you will find the achievements of ICA students, or the school as a whole. Although a victory by an ICA student is primarily an individual accomplishment, we still take pride in the fact, that we motivated that student to continue going to chess (with some help from the parents of course) and helped train him/her to fully develop their chess skill.
