MSCA Scholastic Results


In life, it is always your move.  Play on.

Over 250 entrants were vying for One Shining Moment, Thank you to all who attended 2017 MSCA State Scholastic.  Thank you to the staff and volunteers who came through in making all this possible.  Thank you parents, coaches, and well wishers for the guidance you provide in shaping tomorrow’s future.  Thank you to those who competed and making this a truly unique event.

If this was your first tournament, I am glad you were able to make it, and hope you can for years to come.  If this was your last tournament, then I hope the game has served you well.  If you are a graduating Senior, I hope chess stays with you, and you are always welcome at the MSCA.  Best of luck to your future endeavors.  Play on.

Chess is a game of squares—if you control the right squares, you control the game; just like life

The Minnesota State Chess Association awards the State titles for chess, I hope that is made clear.  That said, congratulations to the State Champions.  Individual results can be found here, with expanded standings to be published later.  K3    K5    K8    K12
