On Saturday, March 23, Brian Gunyan, a Freshman at Spanish Fork Junior High, participated in the varsity section of the Utah State Chess tournament where he took second place in state!

Brian reported, “Unfortunately, I was unable to perform in the official segment due to other obligations. During this tournament, I took second place with 4.5/6 points, one loss and one draw that should have been a win and would have been a win if I had looked at the board for a few more seconds. The winner had 5/6 points.”

SFJH chess coach Tanner Mortimer was very proud of Brian’s achievement.

Congratulations Brian!
