Otago/Southland School Teams Chess Champs

James Hargest's top chess team is off to the South Island final.

The team of Finn Holden, Fred Mun, Liam Barnes and Corbin Fraser finished second out of 14 teams at the Otago-Southland Interschool Chess Championships in Dunedin on Saturday, with their only loss to Otago Boys' High School. Fred Mun, playing at number two, won all seven games. The Hargest A team were also the top Southland team from the event to qualify for the South Island schools championship later in the year. James Hargest's B team of Gimhan Dissanayaka, Kian Mortel, Ammar Ariffin and Jorja McKinley also did the school proud, being unlucky not to finish higher than their 12th placing.
