Dear Ms. Polgar:
It is a pleasure to again extend congratulations to you and the Texas Tech chess teams for their finishes at the recent 2009 Pan-American Intercollegiate Team Chess Championship.
Please convey my personal congratulations to Knight Raiders A for their second place finish in Division I and for qualifying for the President's Cup championship, to Knight Raiders B for their Division 4title, the Lady Knight Raiders for second place finish in Division 4, and to Gergely Antal and Davorin Kuljasevic for continuing to garner individual titles in their competitions.
Congratulations to you as well for being the first woman to coach a men's team into the President's Cup competition.
Once again, the teams have demonstrated their determination to achieve excellence and their exemplary knowledge of chess in defeating teams from other well-known universities. We appreciate the recognition brought to the individual team members, to you and your program, and to Texas Tech.
