The Manitoba High School Chess Championship was held on March 26 at Sisler High School in Winnipeg with 58 students participating in a seven round Swiss tournament.   The winner of the event was Rhailey Punay (6.0 points) of Regent Park school who won on a tiebreak over Yakiv Gres of Kelvin High School and Kyle Gabriel Gecale of Daniel McIntyre Collegiate Institute, who each also had 6.0 points.

Winner of the team event (based on scores of their top 3 players) was Daniel McIntyre with 14.0 points, followed by Sisler with 13.5 and Decker School with 12.5.

Special thank you is extended to Ms. Orysya Petryshyn, a teacher at Sisler who played a key role in organizing the event.   This is the third straight year the high school championship has been hosted at Sisler and we look forward to holding the event again next year during spring break.
