STRS 2nd in Bristol Heat of National School’s Rapidplay Competition

STRS entered both an A and B team to the regional heat of the ECF National School’s Rapidplay Competition on Monday 5th February 2018. The heat, at Bristol Grammar School, was contested by 11 school teams.

Our A team came a very close second, scoring 11½ points from a maximum of 16, with the winners Chepstow scoring 12 points. We drew 2 all in our match against Chepstow (and will play them again at the end of February in the main national school’s championships). Robert Ashworth (12C) on board 1 had a fantastic competition winning all 4 of his games. George Hawthorne (12C) and Adam Schonbeck (13T) both scored 3 out of 4.

The STRS B team were the second best B team at the event. Oliver Bates (12H) and Sacha Dudley (7R) both scored 2 wins from 4 games.

Unfortunately only the top school qualify for the national finals, so STRS will not be able to defend their 4th place in the finals from last year.

Results of the Bristol Heat:

  • 1st Chepstow School 12 points
  • 2nd = STRS A 11½ points
  • 2nd = Churchill School 11½ points
  • 4th Redland School 9 points
  • 5th Bristol Grammar Sch 8½ points
  • 7th = STRS B 6 points
