“In the Second annual Under-16 Girls’ Championship, Taylor Shu (6D) defeated Gabriella Su (6D) in a spirited battle, decided by 6.5 points, to become the 2016 U-16 Girls’ Champion. In the all-out fight, long-tailed dragons reached across the board before forming two eyes and safety. In the 3rd-4th game, last year’s entrant, Melissa Cao (4D) defeated Jessica Li (3D).
At next year’s Congress in San Diego, the U-16 Girls’ tournament will be expanded to include more girls. The prizes for this year’s Final Four were $100, $75, $50 and $25.”
