#NSMQ2019: St.Augustine's College Wins 2019 NSMQ Trophy

After four weeks of intense and exciting contests, St Augustine’s College has been crowned the 26th winners of Primetime’s National Science and Maths Quiz (NSMQ).

On thursday afternoon, former champions,St Peter’s SHS, five-time champions, Presec Legon and now champion, St Augustine’s College took the stage at the National Theatre in Accra to separate the boys from the men.

A trophy drought is a hard thing to break and St. Augustine’s College whose heroics have ended a 26-year drought at the National Science and Maths Quiz 2019.

St. Augustine’s stopped defending champions
St. Peter’s SHS from making it four trophies. Then they hashed completely a Presec hashtag to promote a potential record sixth trophy. But the true weight of this achievement is seen in the fact that last year, they were not even here. No, I don’t mean the finals. They were not even part of the competition. They watched at home.

At times, St. Augustine would arm-twist three points from the quiz mistress with long winding answers until hitting all the key words, an exasperated mistress would get give up the three points.

The Cape Coast based  St. Augustine’s College won the competition with 39 points in total, with PRESEC gaining 34 points in total and St. Peter’s school coming up with 25 points.
