St Augustine’s College has been phenomenal all year in the National Science and Maths Quiz.
From the qualifiers, through the maiden Central Regional championship to the nationals, no challenger has come any close to beating the Cape Coast-based school.
Only Tamale SHS attempted in the quarterfinal but they were quickly shrugged off by the one-time winners.
But Monday evening, Augusco faces the biggest challenge yet.
They come against equally one-time champions, Ghana Secondary and Technical School (GSTS) and one of Volta Region’s best, Keta Senior High and Technical School.
All three schools hope to outmatch the others and pick the last slot at the grand finale.
Already, two of the three slots have gone to five-time champions, Presec Legon and defending champions, St Peter’s Boys’ SHS.
Which of the three join the already qualified schools.
