Shelby School Chess Team
Under Rensch's reign, the Shelby School Chess Team won multiple State and National Chess Championships. As Captain of the 1998 team, they won the K-3, K-6 and K-9 National Championships, a feat that only Rensch's Shelby School chess team was able to accomplish in American scholastic chess history.
In 2004, Rensch was experiencing hearing loss because of an infected stapes bone. From 2004-2006, he underwent five surgeries. In this uncomfortable condition, which prohibited him from flying to most major chess tournaments, he lost his lead over other 19-year-old chess masters.
During this same time period, his interest in teaching chess blossomed. Along with teaching private students, Rensch's involvement with American Chess Events led to him taking over all of their operations since 2007.
Also in 2004, Rensch became a young husband, and eventually became a father. Daniel and Shauna Rensch now have 4 children.
Rensch earned his final IM norm at Susan Polgar's SPICE CUP by achieving draw against then Grand master candidate Ray Robson, who went on to achieve 'youngest ever Grand master in the United States' 2009-2014.
