Middle School Chess players take home third place


On Friday 20 May Nathan Lycho, Brayden Ling, Ethan Strawbridge, Jack Reid and Sana McFarlane-Smith, all middle school students, attended the Somerville House High School Autumn Chess Invitational. After finishing a fair way down in the pack at the last competition, the boys had a lot of ground to make up. But in true Ormiston College style the lads dug in and moved the pieces lightning fast around the chessboard. The team played incredibly well and finished third overall. A special thanks goes to Sana who attended the competition as a reserve but did not get a game. I would also like to thank the parents who attended and supported our boys especially Robyn Ling who was our parent representative, Jill Reid for the photos and Tony Lycho for a breakdown of the boys’ individual games. Well done boys!
