Here are some pictures from the recognition tonight:

This was what the announcer said:

“The Texas Tech Knight Raiders Chess Teams are the reigning National Collegiate Chess Champions in three different divisions. In only the second year competing in Division I, the Knight Raiders stunned the chess world by winning the College Chess Final Four this past April in Washington, DC.

Now, for the first time in school history, they are also ranked as the number one team in the nation and they are looking forward to defend their titles this year.

The Knight Raiders Head Coach, 4-time World Champion and 5-time Olympic Champion, the first woman to lead a men’s division I team to the National Championship, and the first woman to coach the number one ranked team in the nation, our very own Grandmaster Susan Polgar. Let’s wish the team luck in their title defense.

Here are your National Champion Texas Tech Knight Raiders!”
