WASS was drawn bye ahead of this year’s contest[/caption] West Africa Senior High School was one of the three schools that qualified to the quarter-final of the 2017 National Science and Maths Quiz on Friday. West Africa SHS, popularly known as WASS, beat competition from Sunyani SHS and Bueman SHS to make it to the quarters. Represented by Saahene Arko and Abdul Hameed Tade, two second-year science students, WASS garnered a total of 43 points to carry the day. Sunyani SHS came second with 37 points while Bueman SHS came third with 27 points. The stage was charged prior to the contest by quiz mistress Dr Elsie Effah Kaufmann, who reminded Sunyani SHS of their painful loss to WASS last year by just a point. This time the boys from Adenta ensured that there will be no memories for the Brong Ahafo boys as the difference between them at the end of the day was five points. The two had been at par after the first round with 13 points apiece with Bueman SHS trailing them with eight points. Earlier in the day, Holy Child SHS booked a ticket to the next stage at the expense of Koforidua Secondary Technical and Half Assini SHS. Mawuli SHS also made it to the next round after beating Kumasi SHTS and Nsein SHS. The quarter final fixtures are scheduled to begin after Wednesday, June 21, when the one-eighth round is expected to end. By Emmanuel Kwame Amoh|3news.com|Ghana ]]>
