At the end of the contest, Navorongo SHS got 41 points securing their ticket at the Quarter final stage and T.I AMASS, Potsin had 30 take away points while their twin school at Kumasi had 28 points.
After seeing several ‘Kumericans’ schools like Anglican SHS, Prempeh College qualifying to the Quarter final, Kumasi Academy also didn’t fail to return home but a statement of dominance was made by KUMACA, winning with 53 points in New N Block.
From round 1 to the last round, Kumasi Academy never failed to secure a point. Battling it against St. Mary’s SHS and Mfantsipim School. At the end of round 1, St. Mary’s SHS had 9 points and Mfantsipim SHS got 11 points with Kumasi Academy leading the race with 20 points.
