Chesscats finish season strong
The Mount Si Chess Team finished the year impressively. Despite
fielding a team of mostly beginning players, the Chesscats finished fourth
in the Kingco Chess League and qualified for the state tournament.
At the state tournament at Issaquah High, the chess team performed
well considering their lack of experience. Freshman David Haakenson
represented the Wildcats on first board; senior Nathan Phillips on second;
junior Dan Haakenson on third; junior David Ard on fourth and
sophomore Carlin Faultersack on fifth. Freshman Cameron Rice, representing Mount
Si in the junior varsity tournament, played concurrently with the
The Cats endured a rough first day at the tournament, losing both of
its matches, one to Shorewood 4-1 and the other to Rogers 3-2, ending the
day with three points.
However, the Chesscats came back strong on day two, blowing the
doors off Blaine 4-1 and drawing Decatur, 2.5-2.5. They only lost one match,
4-1, to a good team from Cascade.
Overall, the Cats went 1-3-1, earning a total of 10.5 points in the
tournament. More importantly, the team finished 15 places higher than its
original seeding, surprising many people with the quality of their play.
Individually, David Haakenson had a strong tournament on first
board, winning two games while playing the best player from each opposing
team. Ard and Phillips had a strong second day, both winning two of
three matches. Dan Haakenson won two games and came very close to
winning two others, having a strong tournament on third board. In his
first-ever tournament, Faultersack earned two points on fifth board.
In the junior varsity tournament, Cameron Rice continued to show
improvement, winning one game and coming close to winning two others.
Overall, it was a great ending to a season that saw many ups and
downs. After a strong start, the team lost two standout players but recovered
nicely to again proudly represent Mount Si at both the league and state level.
Senior Nathan Phillips leaves this year; while he will be greatly
missed, the team should show great improvement next year. Congratulations on
a successful season.
