Bob Ali reports that Adia Onyango was the team MVP based on her performance in the Bankers Athletic Chess League. The Kingsmen finished third in the regular season and made it to the championship playoffs. Onyango scored 5/9 and has eclipsed 2000 in the league’s rating system.
This is the first time i can recollect since 1963 when I joined the kingsmen that a woman has won mvp in a league the kingsmen played in. Adia played boards one and two in the top division in the league with a 60% winning record and increased her rating 200 points, most in the league. We will see great things from her in the future, I’m sure. Congratulations Adia!!
