Once again, our mighty chess team this year composed of Levin and Thea Shillam, Grant Finlay, Jack Carnaby, Mackenzie Hogden, Zlata Vorontslova, Cody Duck and Jake Martin attended a regional championship at Woolgoolga High School and came home with the goods! We were up against seven other schools and everyone played seven games. Levin Shillam did not lose one match and consequently took out the championship as best individual player. The SGHS team took home the trophy for best school as well.
