Twenty-eight participate at CSCA Girls Championship hosted by the Greenwich Academy. This is the event's second highest total since its inception in 2016. That first event, created over much CSCA and community pessimism and organized by Connecticut Chess Organization--an independent nonprofit project founded by current CSCA President Alexander Lumelsky and the late former CSCA Board member and UConn organizer Thomas Hartmayer--exactly seven years ago on January 21, 2016 at the Farmington Main Library, holds the tournament record with 35 participants. The Connecticut Girls event may not be the biggest, but it pre-dates like tournaments in neighboring states.
