Chess Team Crowned King of the South

This month our school hosted the area chess tournament with nine schools battling in Junior and Intermediate contests. Students played a number of games throughout the morning, collecting points as they moved from game-to-game.

Our two divisional teams demonstrated excellent game-play and sportsmanship. Pictured is our Junior team with their First Place award.  Gabriel, Gianmarco, Rory and Evan played to a stunning victory, obtaining 107 points of a possible 120. Our Intermediate team consisting of Isabelle, Izaak, Jacob and Kaelan put forth a very strong effort, but alas fell to the onslaught of the strong competition.

Mr. Saccon reports that the Ronan Junior and Intermediate teams offered their best effort and commitment throughout the season, and he looks forward to building on this year’s success in years to come.
