Mac Intermediate Team Wins Rotherglen Chess for Charity Tournament
Select members from the MacLachlan College Chess Club attended Rotherglen's Chess for Charity Tournament where they competed against other independent schools in the area. MacLachlan sent two teams: an Intermediate Team (Gayan, Philip, Tianyi, Josh and Carter) and a Junior Team (Andy, Jackson, Jun, Omar and Henry). The teams completed the round robin matches landing the Intermediate Team in 1st place and the Junior team in 3rd place, sending both teams to the playoffs. After nine rounds of chess, the Junior Boys Team was defeated in the semi-finals, finishing the tournament in 4th place out of 12 competing schools, an accomplishment of which they should be very proud! After tying with their opponents, the Intermediate Team went through the semi-final round thanks to their stellar round robin record and went on to sweep the final matches, bringing home MacLachlan the gold medal! Congratulations go out to all members of the Chess Club for their dedication and enthusiasm all year long! A special thank you also goes out to Mrs. Tomasik, our Chess Team coach.
