McCullough said the best part about the tournament “wasn’t just about the win, but the fact she made a couple of friends that she can play chess with in Las Vegas.” With each move, Katy displayed a deep understanding of the game, outmaneuvering her opponents. Her confidence soared as she progressed through the rounds, culminating in a final showdown where she emerged as the undisputed champion.

As Kate celebrates her victory, her journey is a reminder of the power of perseverance and making new friends and memories. With her name now etched in Nevada chess history, Kate McCullough is a shining example of determination and excellence.
