Achimota SHS erases painful 2017 memories with qualification to 2018 NSMQ finals

Ghana - Elite school, Achitmota Senior High School, has put its last year's defeat behind it in a stunning performance at the regional level that saw it clinching a spot in the 2018 National Science and Maths Quiz.
Holed up in the greenery of its environment, Achimota, who were defeated at that level by St. John's Grammar School last year, banished any possibility of an upset in the Thursday contest that had Tema SHS and Presby Osu SHS.
Achimota SHS joins the main competition via a qualifying route some deemed unbefitting of their elite status. Its students jubilated over the victory in a tie they were tipped to be favourites.
The school's NSMQ reputation has been stuttering in recent years. It never got to the main competition in the 2017 edition after it was piped by St. John Grammar School.
The two-time winners could only watch on as big names in the competition fought for bragging rights in the 2017 edition which was ultimately won by Prempeh College from the Ashanti region.
A year before, the two-time winners were eliminated at the one-eighth stage of the competition by less fancied Nifa SHS from Adumkrom in the Eastern region. 
Achimota school which boasts of high-profile alumni, including former President Rawlings, will be keen to erase recent painful memories when the main competition starts later in the year.
In other Greater Accra regional qualifying contests, St. John's Grammar School, Ada SHS, Chemu SHS, St. Margaret Mary SHS have all booked their place at the 2018 finals.
