Primary Schools Chess Competition
In more finals action, last Friday afternoon the John Colet A team (Ryan B, Jarod C, Sean B, Yasha B) each played 2 games against Lane Cove A (Lower North Shore Division winners). The boys were valiant competitors winning 3 games but Lane Cove was slightly stronger on the day winning with 5 games. Congratulations to these boys on their success and their gamesmanship! We now look forward to the 2014 competition!!
