Toowoomba Grammar School

Chess Achievement

Another successful chess tournament for TGS. TGS came first, second, fourth & seventh in the 2019 Toowoomba district Secondary School Teams Chess Championship over the weekend.

Fantastic effort by the players. Following this outstanding achievement, our top 2 TGS teams are now off to the 2019 State inter-school Teams Chess Championship on the 19th & 20th October 2019.

The winning margin by TGS Open 1  team was outstanding being  7 points clear of the second placed team . It was great to see this team win the “ open division “  and the TGS Junior 1  team win the  Junior Division  of the chess championship.

Toowoomba Grammar School has now won the secondary school Teams Chess Championship now for the last 25 consecutive years  ( from 1995 to 2019 ) –  a feat that will be difficult to surpass.

Many thanks to Head Coach Mr Les Lord and Master in Charge, Mr Thomas Schmierer for all their efforts.
