Emily Nguyen of Austin, Texas, scored 6/6 to win the U.S. Junior Under 8 Championship (Open section with both Boys and Girls) while breaking 1,500 at the same time!

She is now at Texas Tech University to participate in the 2010 SP Girl’s Invitational. She was only rated just a little more than 1,000 last year at the 2009 SP National Invitational for Girls. She jumped approximately 500 points in just one year!
