HBHS takes out ChessPower Regional Tournament

On the 12th of June, 11 students from HBHS competed in the ChessPower regional tournament. The boys had a great, fun and successful day playing chess and interacting with other students at the event. Hosted at Ngaruawahia High School, HBHS went on to convincingly win the tournament, with 26 points with the nearest placed school, Hamilton Christian School, on 17 ½ points. All HBHS students fared very well, filling 11 of the top 13 places in a field of 64. HBHS qualified for the ChessPower National Championship team tournament, with our top eight finishers also  qualifying for the Champions Trophy individual tournament to be held in Auckland later in the year.

Particular congratulations go to Michael Lin and Ryan Farrell who scored 100%, with Michael being declared tournament winner on tie-break.  Well done to all players who participated and sincere thanks to one of our Mums, Mrs Elaine Khoo, for helping out on the day.
