This year has been another successful year for Concordia’s inter-school chess teams. We fielded two teams in the Division C competition, playing every second Friday night during Terms 2 and 3.
Of 24 teams, Concordia Gold placed third with 34.5 points (just 0.5 points behind the second-placed team) and Concordia Blue placed fifth with 30.5 points (just 0.5 points behind the fourth-placed team). Concordia Gold comprised one Year 12, one Year 11 and three Year 8s, and Concordia Blue comprised two Year 9s and three Year 7s. This meant that our teams were frequently playing against students who were older and more experienced inter-school players.
All players are to be commended on the enthusiasm and commitment that they have shown throughout the season.
