John and Simon, Soviet immigrants who as children 11 years ago competed against each other in their native Kiev, led James Madison High to the U.S. high school team chess championship over 47 other schools in San Jose, Calif. John, a sophomore, won seven matches and drew one to win first prize on Board 1. Simon, a senior and the team's captain, won first prize on Board 2 with an identical record. They are two of the youngest masters ever certified by the U.S. Chess Federation.
