Chess Champs? Four Teams into Finals!

All four St. Conleth’s Junior School Chess teams have qualified for the finals!  Just when the debaters have established a firm rhetorical grip on the headlines, the Chess boys come back fighting proving that we are All-Ireland class in at least these two extracurricular activities!

 

 

The two teams in division one will have two matches each on Finals Day, whereas the two teams in Division 2 are in a knock-out competition. All quarter-finalists in Division 2 will receive medals. Well done to all teams on their achievements so far! Here are the final standings of the Primary Chess Leagues, along with the schedule for Finals day on Saturday 4th March.  A big ‘thank-you’ to Gillian O’Leary and all the other parents who help keep such a busy chess schedule rolling and Baburin Incorporated for instilling some of those Grandmaster-type moves!
