This year’s edition of the high school team championship was held March 8 at Gonzaga Prep. Four teams took part in a round robin tournament, with Dishman Hills, the Community School, and G-Prep all finishing tied for first with 2-1 scores — Dishman beating Prep in the first round, Community School beating Dishman in the second, and Prep sweeping Community in the third round.
Due to the three-way tie, total points scored broke the tie. Prep took first with 12 (of 15) points, while Dishman claimed the second place trophy with 10 points. Prep’s second board, Charles Ruddell, was a perfect 3-0 to claim the trophy for the outstanding individual performance.
