Adisco, Prempeh & Aquinas to battle for 2017 NSMQ title

Adisadel College are the defending champions

Adisadel College will seek to successfully defend their National Science and Maths quiz title on Thursday as they contest in the final.

It is the third successive final for the Santaclausians as they seek to equal the record of Presbyterian Boys’ Senior High School set in 2008, when they successfully defended their title.

The Presecans, however, hold the title of record champions, having won the title five times.

Adisadel College made it to the final after seeing off regional counterparts University Practice Senior High School and Ghana National College on Monday.

It is was a nail-biting semi-final contest for the defending champions as they won the contest by just one point, thanks to a correctly answered riddle by National.

Adisco’s dream of winning a second title can only be thwarted by Kumasi giants Prempeh College and 2014 champions St Thomas Aquinas SHS.

Prempeh College made it to the final after besting Central Region’s Mfantsipim School and Volta Region’s Mawuli School, who had ousted West Africa SHS in the quarter-final.

Aquinas clinched the last ticket to the final after seeing off regional rivals PRESEC-Legon and Kumasi High School.

The final is scheduled to take place at the National Theater in Accra.
