SIS Chess Champions

On Thursday 8 September the Woodleigh Chess Team competed and won the 2022 Southern Independent Schools’ Chess Championship.

It was a really exciting day with approximately fourteen local independent schools competing. We all watched the active scoreboard very closely with growing anticipation as we saw the Woodleigh score approach the top.

Congratulations to the whole team:

  • Ranita Marantelli, Andrew Stroessenreuther, Harvey Whiney (year 7)
  • Hywel Matthews, Innes Thistleton (year 8)
  • Finn Coster (year 9)
  • Kota Chadwick, Ronan Coster, Griff Matthews and James Longley (year 10)

And special congratulations to Ronan Coster, who was awarded the third-best overall player of the day.

The entire team is now looking forward to the State Championships which will be held in Term 4.
