Brooklyn students take 1st place in National Chess Championships for 2nd year
The chess team at the SEEALL Academy in Brooklyn has won the National Chess Championships for the second year in a row.
Students spend weekends and after-school hours perfecting their skills, and their efforts have clearly paid off.
Haobin Chen, who has been a part of the team since he was 10 years old, said he's hoping to pass the torch to the next generation.
"I really hope that this team, in the future, they can achieve just as much as we did," Chen said. "Maybe even more."
