The CBA chess team won the New Jersey Team Championship in March at Union County Vocational-Technical School in Scotch Plains. The all-senior team won all five of their matches to cap the team victory. In total, 25 members of the program competed in both the varsity and junior varsity sections of the tournament. Other individual board winners were Kevin Cisneros, Thomas Greenwald, Jonathan Wuestneck, Jacob Dice, and Alec Almeida. Since the trophyโ€™s founding in 1956, CBA has won the stateโ€™s top title in 1980, 1985, 2007, 2015, and now 2018.
