The United States Chess Federation’s SuperNationals V officially broke the attendance record for largest rated chess competition in history with 5,335 participants, grades kindergarten through 12.

The previous record was set at SuperNationals III with 5,320.

Brady Setser, a second grader at Laurel Hill Primary School in Mount Pleasant, placed 35th out of 423 students in the kindergarten through third grade rated under 800 division.

He finished the three-day tournament with five wins and two losses.

This is the best finish ever in a national event by a Charleston County School District student.

Also representing Mount Pleasant schools was Austin Setser, a sixth grader at Cario Middle School, who finished 85th out of 329 students in the kindergarten through eighth grade rated under 750 division.

He finished with four wins, one draw and two losses.

Both students are coached by local chess expert Stephen Welt, and both are products of the Pinckney Elementary and Cario Middle School chess teams.
