A Chicago chess team had all the right moves and their high school celebrated a state championship Tuesday.

Last weekend Whitney Young became the first Chicago Public High School to win the state chess championship since 1988.

On Tuesday a pep rally was held to honor the team. Dancers, cheerleaders and musicians all helped celebrate.

Niles North finished second this year. Hinsdale Central came in third.
