Western PA Scholastic Chess
The purpose of this particular list is primarily to allow a large group of kids to look up
It is not meant to reflect the top Western PA players in each grade
for several reasons.
Firstly, it includes many out of state students who happen to have
played in Pittsburgh at one time or another. Secondly, it includes ratings that may be based
on as few as 4 games.
Ratings based on such a small number of games are often very
unreliable. Thirdly, this list includes students who may be currently inactive, since it
goes back quite a few years.
If you want to see who the top players in each grade currently are,
check our Scholastic Honor Roll list at the link on the bottom of this page.
