TGS Chess Champs21st October 2021
Checkmate for Toowoomba Grammar School at the Queensland Chess Championships in Brisbane from 9-11 October.
TGS placed runner-up State Champions overall and were also crowned Regional State Champions in both the Primary School and Secondary School divisions.
Along with winning the Regional Secondary title, our ‘Team’ 2 in that division placed third.
TGS also won the ‘Best Board’ prize for boards 1, 2, 3 and 4 in the regional state championships of the secondary division.
It’s been an extraordinary year for the TGS Chess program, winning both the Secondary and Primary School divisions in the Toowoomba District Teams Competition for the 27th consecutive year and placing a very close third in the tough GPS competition.
The School’s next goal is to reach the National Championships. Unfortunately this year only one team from each state progressed to that level due to COVID.
