Chess Team Reach Semi-finals

January 19, 2015

On Sunday 18 January, the St Paul’s chess team – consisting of Lauren Weaver (V), Tess Weaver (MIV) and Emilia Murray (UIV) – started the New Year off with the semi-finals of the National Schools’ Chess Championships. They scored 10.5 out of 15 (including a point bonus for being a young team since they were playing against girls up to nineteen-years-old), which was only half a point away from qualifying for the national finals. Overall, they enjoyed the opportunity to play against some of the best female chess players in the country.
