Comments:

1. Dragon students had a magnificent performance at this Queen City Classic chess tournament. Overall, the individual trophies are awarded to only around 21% of top players in each section (except a few smaller sections, such as K NR, 1 NR, K-3 Open, 10-12 Open, 4-6 U800). But about 76% of Dragon players won individual trophies. Dragon players took about one third of all individual trophies awarded at this Queen City Classic.

2. Suraj Parikh, Hrushik Chiluvuri, Rohit Chejarla, Vedant Sharma, Varun Sathyajeeth, Jason Xu, and Rajdeep Roy, won all five games and earned a perfect score of 5.0 in their sections.

3. The Dragon and DRE players participated in competition in 12 sections. They have three players or more in 9 sections. They won 10 team trophies in all these 9 sections. Eight of those team trophies are first places.
