The Sharks Quiz: St. Thomas Aquinas makes semifinal berth at the expense of Adisadel College.



Accra top high school, St. Thomas Aquinas returned from a hiatus last season to make the semifinals this season against two-time semifinalists Adisadel College.

The Aquinas side started the stronger side in the Right Corner round (questions on Ghana and Africa) and R cubed round (Reading, writing and Arithmetic), but the Zebra boys from Cape-Coast came strong in the STEM Round. Only ten points separated the two sides as they went into the final One-on-One round. It was there that the Beeb3 side showed composure and amassed 50 points from a possible 80 points. 130 – 90 it ended.

This sweet victory makes St. Thomas Aquinas the third side after Presec- Legon and Mawuli school to qualify for the semifinals in Season 3 of The Sharks Academic Competition

At the junior level, defending champions Ghana Christian International High showed why they are the school to beat after overpowering Wa-based Tender Care Junior High School. Both sides had been impressive in their earlier contests but experience came to play from the third round (STEM). The Christian High side scored 40 points against Tender Care’s 10 points to set them up for victory.  140 – 95 it ended. Christian High qualifies for the semifinals at the juniors’ level for the second time in a row.
