CHESS CHAMPIONS: UNDER-11 SUSSEX SCHOOLS

CHESS CHAMPIONS: UNDER-11 SUSSEX SCHOOLS

chessSunday 19th November saw the Sussex under-11 Chess Championships, for year 6 and below, take place at Downlands Community School.

Lachlan Stewart, Max Massey and Darcey Walker-Lee (all still in year 5) competed in the competition and scored really well. 

As a result Ardingly College were the top school team by some margin and so are Sussex under-11 School Champions.  They beat tough competition but ended up with a clear margin ahead of second place Lancing College Prep.
