They were: Isaac Marnik, Stephen Wong (son of tournameny director Charles (Steve) Wong), Collin Calhoun and Nicholas Kawamura. Young Kawamura gave Wong (USCF 1323) and Marnik (USCF 1581) runs for their money in tough-fought games. Lois Morin scored 1.0 point and Ben Fitzpatrick, although going scoreless in his first USCF-rated tournament, played all games with an admirable determination.
