Resilience in the Face of Adversary
Date: August 29, 2017
Even though Suncoast is the youngest chess club to compete in the Inter-school Chess Tournament for 2017 on the Sunshine Coast, we still managed to create waves and bring home 13 medals and 8 merit ribbons. Our Open A team division received 2nd overall with Samson List also receiving an individual medal for 2nd. Our Open B team division also received medals for 2nd place. First time competing, our 8 years and under Team A players also brought home 3rd place medallions.
While being rewarded with ribbons and medals is a great acknowledgement of hard work and knowledge, we are, as always, proud of all 21 students who competed. Their resilience when faced with many adversaries was admirable.
