All Grade: team results

I'll be honest: I didn't even know this was a team event, too!  The top three finishers in each school determine the team results.  Full recap of prizewinners on the Illinois Chess Teachers website.

The All Grade is a premier event on the elementary calendar, and a relatively minor event on the high school calendar.  Still, it's impressive to see Benet Academy of Lisle finish ahead of Chicago's Whitney Young.  I would not have expected this, even though Zinski and Kranjc of Benet were the top two seeds, simply because of Whitney Young's depth.  Should be an interesting scholastic season!
