National Champion!!!

Cahree Myrick, a 7th grader at Roland Park EMS, became the first player from BKCL to win an individual USCF National Champion when he captured the U-1000 section at Supernationals in Nashville in May. Cahree started playing chess as a 1st grader at the Green School and was a BKCL Citywide champion as a 5th grader in 2015.  

Congratulations Cahree!
