National Successes for Oxfordshire Juniors
Several Oxfordshire juniors have placed highly in national rapidplay championships over the last couple of months. The most recent event was the UK Chess Challenge Southern Gigafinal on the 15th-16th July. The Oxon champions from the Saturday were Anna Wang (U7G), Maria Wang (U10G) and Marcus Harvey (U10BA) and on the Sunday: Naomi Miller (U16G) and Claire Morris (U18G) (listed as Berks in the official results due to the old County boundaries used in the competition)
On the 24th of June, Rowan White (U8) and Anna Wang (U7) were age-group champions in the ECF All-England Girls Gold Finals and on the 10th of June, the Cowley U9 team of Sarah Garrett, Anna Wang, Rowan White and Chantelle Foster finished seven points clear of 19 other teams to win the ECF National Girls Team Championships.
Here are the results of the winners and the other Oxon medallists in these events.
In August, several of these players will be competing at longplay time controls in the British Championships in Swansea.
And in September, Marcus Harvey (U10B) and Maria Wang (U10G) have been invited to represent England in the European Youth Championships - the most prestigious youth event that the ECF are sending a squad to this year.
