Luciana Morales' shared a photo gallery to show how much fun the 28 teams had at the recently concluded Pan American Championships in South Padre Island, Texas (Dec.27-30). Joining this year's championship team, the University of Maryland at Baltimore Country for the "Final Four" competition in the Spring of 2010 will be the University of Texas at Dallas, Texas Tech University and the University of Texas at Brownsville. "No surprises there," Morales' said, who will also be writing about the event for an upcoming issue of Chess Life Magazine.
University of Texas at Brownsville program director Russell Harwood told CLO, "UTB/TSC is honored to have hosted the 2009 Pan Ams. I would like to thank the students who gave up part of their holidays to participate in this prestigious event. We had universities all the way from Barbados to Toronto participate, and all the students did a fantastic job of representing their respective universities."
