As usual we had five sections contested in the Fall Ostfeld Memorial Scholastic competition at the Bergen Academies in Hackensack, New Jersey.
ICA Camper Yishai Forst was the clear winner in section one winning all four of his games and putting an exclamation point on the victory by winning against the 3rd, and 2nd place finishers in the final two rounds. Speaking of which the second place finisher was Aneesh Iyer who won three games and only lost to Yishai, while the third place finisher was Choco Chen who also won three games and only lost to Yishai.
Sean Mclaughlin, and Victoria Kerimov also got three out of four points and tied for the spot at the top of the podium.
