Chess News | Round 3

The Trinity Chess team continued to build momentum in this year’s CAS Chess tournament, with a strong showing in Round 3 against St. Aloysius’ College. Despite arriving a little late to the venue, the boys managed to calm down and maintain focus in their games. At the end of an intense hour-long battle against St. Aloysius’, the team produced a triumphant 11-1 win. Following his re-emergence on to the CAS Chess stage against Cranbrook last week, Emmanuel Grogan (12Fo) again demonstrated great skill in his swift 11-move win on Senior Board 1. The intermediate team similarly demonstrated impressive finesse in a decisive 4-0 sweep, winning on every board. Congratulations must finally be given to the juniors, who continued to play strongly in an overall 3-1 win. Particularly, praise goes to Alex Kountouris (7Mu) for a strong win in his CAS debut. The team is determined and confident of performing strongly next week against our toughest opponents of the competition, Knox Grammar School. The team will train hard this week in the lead-up to next Friday’s fixture against Knox, and is ready to go all in to bring home the shield for the first time in four years.
