Ontario and Quebec Scholastic Team Championships 2013

Report-Frank Dixon on Chesstalk(Exerpt)

'Nearly 90 young players, most of whom travelled by chartered bus to Kingston, from Montreal and Toronto, competed in what has become a very nice traditional scholastic teams event at Queen's University. 

IA Larry Bevand and his CMA team, which I assisted, orchestrated a smoothly-run tournament with no disputes and great sportsmanship all round. 

The high school section was captured by University of Toronto Schools 'A' team, which won all five matches across four boards. Runner-up was Thornhill Secondary School.

The board one competition was intense, with at least six Masters and strong Experts taking part. The event had Michael Song (Henderson, Toronto), Christopher Knox (UTS A), Mark Plotkin (Thornhill), Zong Yang Yu (Notre Dame, Montreal), WCM Jackie Peng (UTS A), and David Itkin (Thorhnill).'
