Gabriela is chess champion
GABRIELA CUMBERBATCH has won the 2016 Massy Girls School Chess Championship that was recently played at the Bridgetown Chess Centre.
The Harrison College student won all five of her games, finishing one and a half points ahead of second-placed Azariah Johnson of Charles F. Broome Primary.
Cumberbatch was dominant throughout the tournament and was only in trouble in her last-round game against visiting player Jessica Clementson. She was a piece down, but with Clementson falling short on time, Gabriela was able to come back to claim victory and achieve a clean sweep of victories.
The current Under-12 Carifta girls champion Johnson was half a point ahead of fellow classmate Vanessa Greenidge, who finished in third on three points. (PR)
