All the right moves from DHS

2014-09-09 00:00

WHEN it comes to moving strategically around the chess board, DHS certainly make the right moves.

Chess has become an extra-mural sport for many pupils not too keen on the hustle and bustle of ball sport. These folks prefer to sit quietly and tap into their lateral thinking, working out their moves and gameplans to bring about their opponent’s downfall.

Plenty of brain power came together at the recent Durban and Districts chess tournament final, with the DHS team up against fellow board combatants from Glenwood, Northwood, Westville Boys’ High, New Forest, St Henry’s and Clifton College among others.

The DHS lads played four rounds of 25 minutes each, winning all their rounds which was enough to bag them the overall honours. They finished top of the pile, with Northwood second and Clifton third.

The boys were commended for their dedication to the cause and working as a team to move DHS into the top spot and rule as the chess kings of Durban.
