Silver Medal in Interschool Chess Tournament
On Monday, 15 qualifying students from our chess club participated in an Interschool chess tournament at Tyndale Christian School. It was a great competition with ten schools participating. It has been a long time since the competition has been this big! We were in first place for most of the day, but in a nail-biting finish, were respectfully defeated at the end by King’s Baptist School! Silver medals still felt very good for our top four players. Congratulations to Neil for being our top player, and 5th overall (even including the High School students). Isabella, is also to be congratulated, taking out the top girl player trophy for the third tournament in a row!
Well done team, especially our new players, Levi, Maahir and Zeki who participated in their first tournament. It is always a wonderful experience to meet many other students from different schools that play chess. We congratulate Kings for taking top place this time. We look forward to our next challenge, which will be the STATE tournament in Week three of next term.
