After three weeks of intense competition, the American Go Honor Society (AGHS) has named seventeen members to the US Junior National Team, who will compete in the 2010 Brunei Friendship Games later this week. Six students had earned berths directly for superior performance in the School Team Tournament, while the remainder were selected by a qualifying tournament. “From last year’s gold medal winning squad, we’re glad to welcome back two members who earned berths in the qualifying event,” reports organizer Ashely Wilson; “we look forward to repeating our performance and taking top honors again. Games will be played on KGS, so we hope you all will come out in support of the Red, White, and Blue against Southeast Asia.” For more information, go to the AGHS website.
