Five students from University Prep Science & Math Elementary and Middle Schools in Michigan competed: Jaidyn Hamilton and twin sister Jada; Lauren Bradford; Sa’Nya Burton; and Gisele Motley.

All six girls are active in the Detroit City Chess Club, which is composed of  elementary, middle and high school chess teams.

Congratulations to these wonderfully talented young ladies! #Love it!
