On Oct. 12, 2013, Spoede Elementary School clinched its first chess tournament of the year. Only four Spoede Elementary School players were able to participate at the tournament, held at Crossroads Preparatory School. However, the team was still able to outperform some of the top rated schools in St. Louis. Overall, there were 152 students participating K-6, with 10 schools represented.
