Deniliquin Christian School (DCS) finished a commendable ninth at the junior Chess State Championships late last month.

Sabrina Taylor (12), Benjamin Broekman (10) and Josh Everingham (9) represented DCS at the chess contest, held in Glebe, Sydney .

The trio competed against 16 other teams, and accompanying teacher David O’Hara said it was thrill to see the school compete on a state level.

‘‘The students have done such a good job, it was such a big trip. We’re already planning to compete in the chess competition next year.’’

DCS qualified for the state championships after taking first place at a regional level in Albury earlier this year.
