The 2018 School Chess League (SCL) finals were held on 21st July at Leeming Primary School.

The Primary League division was run as a double round robin with 4 schools participating. This included 1st time entrants, Floreat Park Primary and Nedlands Primary with Regent College and Mount Lawley Primary the other 2 contestants. Mount Lawley and Nedlands were the front runners to winning the title. Both schools met in the final round and the competition was treated to a very exciting finish. Nedlands was leading the competition but a brave fightback from Mount Lawley saw both teams sitting on equal game points at the end. This forced a playoff between both teams and Mount Lawley emerged victorious, winning back to back titles. The Secondary League division was run as a single round robin with Mater Dei College, Aquinas College, Wesley College and Corpus Christi College participating. It was mainly a tight contest between Aquinas, Wesley and Corpus Christi and with a little luck either way, the results could have been different. In the end Wesley claimed their third straight SCL finals title with Aquinas half a point behind in second place.

Congratulations to Mount Lawley Primary and Wesley College who will be WA's representatives at the 2018 Australian Schools' Teams Championships.

Overall, the day ran smoothly with a few disputes arising but were settled quickly. It was pleasing to see that the level of competition in junior chess had taken another step forward. I would like to thank all schools and players for their participation and especially thank George Carolin-Unkovich for his efforts in co-ordinating the Primary League. A big thank you as well to Leeming Primary School and Southern Suburbs Chess Club for providing the keys to venue.
