On the 12th of October, a team of 12 PLC girls competed in the secondary girls’ interschool state finals. There was fierce competition with many tough battles fought, and the final scores for the tournament were extremely close.

Prior to this tournament the team had exchanged theory and practised together at Chess Club, analysing various positions and learning from our mistakes. The girls also played in a series of open interschool tournaments, which provided strong competition for additional practice.
