Sycamore Trails sixth-grade student Marissa Li earned first place in the Under 12 category of the 2014 National All-Girls chess competition organized by the Kasparov Foundation and the Renaissance Knights.

The win qualified her to represent the U.S.A. at the World Youth Championship, but she has selected to continue practicing and compete in the world championship next year.

This is not Marissa's first big win as she also earned second place in the Illinois Girls Invitation and fourth place in the 2014 Illinois K-8 Championships in March.
