Leeming SHS Chess team WON the State Chess Finals on Thursday Sept 15th. Students displayed an amazing level of commitment to the team, concentration, strategic planning and were extremely competitive throughout the whole day
It was a nail biting finish with Leeming stabilizing to win with 28 ½ points, Wesley came in second with 26 ½ points and Perth Modern third with 23 ½ points.
Leeming’s Jack won Top Individual player and Paddy was runner-up.
We also had Amber come in as runner-up Top female player.
Congratulations to the whole team on a fantastic result – Including all the Chess Club members who didn’t make the Finals group but competed regularly against each other and also in the Regionals, which helped to improve everyone’s skills and to get the team to the State Finals
Next step - Nationals in November.
