The Cherry Creek Chess League is a district chess opportunity where schools play matches against each other after school once a week in January and February.  Each school fields a ten player team where the schools have home and away matches. The top player from each school squares off against the top player from the other school, second best player plays second best player, and so on down the line.

The winner of the 2017 Cherry Creek Chess League and the first place trophy was Challenge School. Willow Creek took home the second place trophy.

If your school is interested in joining the Chess League next year, contact Todd Bardwick, District Chess Coordinator, at 303-770-6696 or
