Hello Chess Enthusiasts!
Interschool Chess Challenge: Semi – Finals
The 2014 Interschool Chess challenge has been running heats across NSW since March. John Colet School competed at the North Sydney Heat in June and progressed to the local Semi-Final which was held in Harbord last Friday. It was a who’s who of Chess teams from across the Northern Beaches and the North Shore as this is one of the strongest regions in NSW.
Our fabulous team competed against very worthy opponents and performed fantastically. They finished in 4th place with 17.5 points. Sadly, only the top 3 schools progress to the State Final – we were so close!
A massive congratulations to the following students on their focus, fantastic sportsmanship and their success – Ryan B (6/7 points and 4th place overall), Xavier S, Brigitte S, Nathan C and Lucas v de S.
