The Joliet Alternate High School Chess Team attended the CAAEL (Chicago Area Alternative Education League) Chess Tournament and won the Sportsmanship Award.
Joliet Alternate High School had six students attend the tournament competing with students from over eight schools that made it to the tournament.
Sarah Lorenzi, a CAAEL representative, congratulated the chess team from Joliet. Mrs. Lorenzi said how good it was to see a team from Joliet Alternate School participate in their first CAAEL Chess Tournament and to be awarded the Sportsmanship Trophy.
Director of Joliet Alternate High School LaTanya Harris said, “I would like to give a special thanks to the volunteer coach, Nancy Cora, and to Lawrence Rodgers for accompanying her and the students. Without the support and encouragement of their coach, the students would not have been as successful.”
