McCallie's Upper School chess team ran the table March 2 to claim the Region 2 Chess Championship.
The team of senior Jon Warren, sophomores Russell Hart and Michael Trobich and freshman Tanay Patri went undefeated in the tournament and recorded a perfect team score.
Chess team advisor Michael Ake noted this was the first perfect score for a McCallie team since he joined the staff in 2004.
The junior high team of freshmen Bayo Fasipe, Jay Gibbs and Patri and eighth-grader Brock Herring earned third place in their section. The junior high B team won the B championship with a blitz win over Cleveland Middle School. Members of the B team include eighth-graders Jake Duplooy and Shalin Naik and sixth-graders Thomas Shikoh and Parth Virani.
All three teams advance to the state tournament which will take place March 23, at Tennessee Tech University in Cookeville.
