24 players from 13 different schools competed at this year's St. Michael's School SAE. Top seed Rachel Davey won the Major trophy with a perfect 6/6 for the second time this year. Second was William Foo, who only lost to Rachel on his way to a 5/6 score, while Florence Mitchell scored 4½ points to claim third place. First and third placings for the girls represents the best ever SAE result for "girl power"!
The Minor trophy, for the best result for a player graded under 500, was won by Kieran Brown from the host school. Kieran scored 3½ points to claim his first SAE trophy, winning or drawing against a number of well established Berkshire players along the way. Dominic Haederle was runner up with 2½ points, in front of a four-way tie for third.
