Lower School Students Win Three Grade-Level Competitions, Reach Final Championship Round in Knight School Chess Tournament

Moorestown Friends School proudly hosted the Knight School Chess Tournament on Saturday, December 15. Over 100 students and parents/family members attended, participating in and watching grade-level matches throughout the morning.

Three MFS students won their grade-level tournaments. They are:

  • Chase Liebman ’29, second grade
  • Noah Hasni ’28, third grade
  • Aodhan DiPalma ’27, fourth grade

The all-tournament championship brought together the winners from each grade level. Fourth grader Aodhan DiPalma was a finalist in this competition (losing in the final round to an eighth grader from St. Francis of Assisi).

The Knight School runs chess clubs across the country, including the Lower and Middle School clubs at Moorestown Friends. Its involvement at MFS began with a pilot program last year, which has since grown significantly in student participation.

Congratulations to all MFS participants and winners!
