50th National Inter-School Chess Championship

Just got an update by one of our parents for the 50th National Inter-School Chess Championship which Victoria School participated in yesterday.
Amongst the participants from VS was Nicholas Lee, one of our ASEAN scholars from Malaysia

Nicholas and team played in the Secondary Open category and won the East Zone championship as well as tied 4-6th placing with Yishun and Nanyang Girls with 15 points each. This is very good placing given that they were ahead of RI Team 2 and RGS who are strong teams.

Here we see our boys competing hard:

Compared to being in 12th position last year, we have made a marked improvement this year!
Well done boys!

Was VS joint-champions with ACS(I) in 2002 for Under-16 Boys (based on website here)?
It is not listed in VS website under Achievements though.

From VS website, Pok Wern Jian was 2nd in the National School Individual Chess Championships in 2003 and 4th in 2004.

Correction: In was in 1999, not 2002.
VS was joint-champions with ACS(I) in Under-16 Boys.
No wonder it is not on VS website where the achievements listed start from 2002.
