National Chess Finalists!
Yesterday saw the following boys taking part in the Canterbury Regional Chess Champs at the Christchurch Town Hall. Finlay Benson, Ryan Zhang, Bill Li and Tate Aikawa (A Team); Zac Croft, Josh Manenge, Cody Wu and Hwijun Kwon (B Team); and Lucas Hu, Noah Kingston, Tom Wilson and Morgan Du (C Team).
We were excited to receive updates from Chess Coach, Mr Benson, during the day yesterday, who first reported that the A team were first equal with one round to be played! Not long afterwards we found out that Medbury had made it through to the Chess Nationals! A first for Medbury! Well done to all the boys who played, and thank you to Coach Mr Benson, and Teacher in Charge of Chess, Mrs Johnson.
We wish the boys all the best for the upcoming Nationals!
