Keta Senior High School (KETASCO) has eliminated Chemu SHS and Oti Boateng SHS at the quarterfinal stage of the 2019 ongoing National Science and Maths Quiz Competition.
The Dzolalians put up an impressive performance on Saturday morning to join Wesley Girls SHS, Adisadel College and Tepa Senior High School at the Semi Finals.
Representing the Volta Region, Ketasco, is expected to put up a more convincing performance at the Semi Finals to win the ultimate trophy.
In KETASCO’s NSMQ history, the school has secured a third consecutive appearance at the semifinal Stage.
Chemu, who has until this point had a wonderful campaign were tipped to win the contest but their woes which started from a slow round one continued throughout the contest.
For Oti Boateng SHS, their over 70 points in the qualifiers sent shivers down the spine of their challengers and the Eastern Region school kept that name going until now.
They gave Ketasco a run for their money but only until the penultimate round.
Ketasco shattered the game in the last round by picking three of four riddles to progress and keep the hope of a Volta Region-based school winning the 26-year-old competition alive.
At the end of the contest, the final scores were:
Keta SHTS: 47pts
Oti Boateng SHS: 28pts
Chemu SHS: 24pts
