WELCOME TO THE CPS CHESS WEBSITE!
The beauty of a chess move lies not in its appearance,
but in the thought behind it.

CPS dominates Evanston chess tournament Saturday 11-5-11
The CPS had a monster last Saturday with Mather winning state in soccer, Jones taking 7th in cross country, and Hubbard
advancing to the state quarterfinals in football.

Adding to this haul was the domination of CPS chess in a prestigious chess tournament at Evanston. 6 of last year's top 8 teams in the state attended this big event, including Niles North, Hinsdale Central, Stevenson, and Evanston. But at the end of the day, the only two perfect 4-0 scores belonged to Whitney Young and Northside Prep. It's one more thing to add to the amazing day in CPS sports and activitys. Kelly also had a strong 3-1 result, and it was good to see Lane Tech back in action with a team and a new coach, Bob Bartelt.

The CPS has a very developed chess program that starts with a Kindergarten-2nd grade level city championship. Maybe that is one reason why the CPS is so competitive at the high school level.
