LINC Chess hosted 181 students at its first K-12 tournament in North Kansas City.
The tournament was held at North Kansas City High School in the North Kansas City School District. LINC Chess has recently expanded in that district, and three schools attended that had not previously entered in a tournament.
Students from 13 school districts in the Kansas City metro area participated.
