NSMQ 2020: Zabzugu SHS kicks out Anbariya SHS and Gowire SHTS on Day 2 of the Prelims

Zabzugu SHS, who was not even in the game for the National Championships till March, have justified their inclusion in the Preliminary Stage by masterfully winning against Anbariya SHS and Gowrie SHS.

After initially losing their Regional Qualifier contest in February 2020, Zabzugu SHS was selected by Primetime Ltd., organizers of the NSMQ, to take up one of two vacant slots after all the Regional Qualifiers competitions, giving them a second chance at the Preliminary Stage.

Dr. Anita Oppong-Qauicoe, a lecturer at the Department of Chemistry at the University of Ghana, Legon, was the Quiz Mistress for the Northern Zone.

As top runner-up from the regional qualifiers, Zabzugu SHS earned their slot in the One-eighth Stage by kicking out Anbariya SHS from the Northern Region and Gowrie SHTS from the Upper East Region, on Day One of the Northern Zone Preliminary Stage.

Zabzugu SHS showed much promise leading Round One with 14 points, as well as dominating Round Two with 19 points. Gowrie SHTS was able to maintain their initial five points in Round Two, however, Anbariya SHS lost two points at the end of the second round and started Round Three with just three points.
