Thomas and Fackey named Student Athletes of the week, brought to you by Wings on Brookwood
Congratulations to Caleb Thomas and Daniel Fackey from the Chess team. Caleb and Daniel have been named student-athletes of the week, brought to you by Wings on Brookwood.
Coach Garry's comments on Caleb and Daniel:
- Caleb Thomas - Senior - Captain Caleb Thomas has been instrumental to our team's success this year. As our only senior and a four year varsity player, Caleb plays First Board, leads the team in varsity wins, and assists less experienced players in practice, teaching them gambits and strategy. Through his four years on the chess team, Caleb has developed strong leadership skills and shows a great deal of poise and focus while competing against the best players in the league. Just this week, Caleb’s skill and persistence helped him earn a draw against the first board player from the top ranked team in the league.
- Daniel Fackey - Junior - Daniel is new to the sport, but is enthusiastic and brings a lot of energy to the team. Despite his inexperience, Daniel has racked up two wins, and continues to improve each match. He won a recent match in only nine moves! Daniel is willing to take risks and try new things, and is not afraid of a challenge.
