Tino Delamerced, 8th grader at The Summit Country Day School, won the over-all first place trophy in the 6-tournament Cincinnati Scholastic Chess Series held in different venues over the last six months. Tino also won the over-all title in 2009.

The series concluded at The Summit Country Day School on March 27, 2010. A unique multi-media set-up allowed spectators to watch in real-time the top chess board games of the day.

In the National Junior Chess Congress held February 20-21, 2010 in Indianapolis, Indiana, Tino placed second in the Middle School Division. The State Championships held March 20-21 in Cuyahoga Heights High School in Cleveland saw him secure second place.

Tino has been coaching The Summit Chess Club the last three years, which has a membership of 40 students. In addition, he mentors inner city students in chess camps through the Leadership Scholars, Inc.
