Juniors Score Big at Schools’ Chess Competition

CHS’s U9 chess players made some impressive moves at the prestigious English Primary Schools’ Chess Association (EPSCA) competition.
 
Hosted by Bolton Boys School, CHS were the youngest team to take part but pupils Ethan Gardiner, Rahul Surapaneni, Rohit Surapaneni, Aaryan Girota and Edward Morton played particularly well finishing in fifth place after winning three out of the five matches.
 
Pitching their logic against Bolton Boys, High Gate and the Reverse Team, each CHS player played 5 games, scoring at least 1.5 points per match. 
 
CHS’s highest scorer was Ethan Gardiner who scored 4/5 and won a best game prize for his excellent round 2 match. 
 
CHS Junior School Chess Coach, Ms Sarah Hegarty said: “The chess club has only been running for a term so it was a fantastic achievement. I am proud of the whole team for their efforts. They all worked hard to achieve this.”
