Three players marched to titles with perfect records and two sections produced joint champions in the Barbados Chess Federation’s National Under-12, Under-16 and Under-20 Championships last weekend.

Harrison College’s Kyle Sandiford took the Under-20 Open section, Queen’s College’s Louis Wilson won the Under-16 Open division and Hannah Wilson of Charles F. Broome captured the Under-12 Female category without dropping a point when the three-day championships concluded at Harrison College last Sunday.

It was much closer in two other sections, with the Under-16 Female category having a three-way tie involving Queen’s College’s Vanessa Greenidge and the Harrison College pair of Gaybrianna Moore and Azaria Johnson while the Under-12 Open division saw Rory Prescod of Queen’s College and Tarquin Clark of St Winifred’s emerging as joint champions.
