The Hastings Secondary College Port Macquarie Campus team travelled to Macksville High School on 12 March to compete in round one of the Country Schools Chess Competition.
They returned victorious, having won three of the four games played. Tylah Lay (Year 10) battled for just over an hour to defeat her opponent whilst Marina Lay and Zale Donovan (Year 9) quickly overcame their opponents.
New member Drew De Silva (Year 7) played well but was unfortunately trapped in checkmate. Our round two match against St Columba Anglican School has been postponed until Term Two and we are aiming to hold it online.
