Departing Knight Raiders
On behalf of Texas Tech University and SPICE, I would like to congratulate IM Gergely Antal (economics undergrad - A team), IM Gabor Papp (finance undergrad - A team), Stephanie Ballom (psychology graduate - women's team - former President of the Knight Raiders Chess Club), and Konstantin Parkhomenko (law - B team - former President of the Knight Raiders Chess Club) for completing their studies at Texas Tech.
They are all excellent students and they have contributed greatly to the development of chess at Texas Tech and the Lubbock community. I wish all of them the best in their future endeavors.
The rest of the Knight Raiders are coming back for the Fall 2010 semester. We are also adding new players for the B team and women's team.
GM Davorin Kuljasevic will come back to lead the Knight Raiders A team. Joining him will be 2 additional Grandmasters and 1 International Master.
The full roster will be announced after the upcoming Knight Raiders - SPICE welcome / welcome back reception.
