Photos: Prempeh boys make triumphant entry into campus after NSMQ17 heroics

Prempeh College came to a standstill after its heroes at the 2017 National Science and Maths Quiz made a triumphant entry into the campus flashing their trophy.

Students besieged the forecourt of the campus to hail Daniel Osei Badu and Wonder Sarfo-Ansah for their impressive performances at the competition in Accra.

Prempeh College won the trophy by a narrow 2 points over a gritty St. Thomas Aquinas side in a grand finale which also featured dethroned 2016 holders, Adisadel College from the Central region.

Out of 135 schools vying for the trophy, Prempeh College's march to the final included kicking out St. Louis SHS and Toase SHS at the one-eighth stage. They also eliminated 2012 NSMQ winners, GSTS and debutants, Aduman SHS in the quarterfinal contest.
