The only school to have ever won the contest back-to-back in the years 2008 and 2009, Presec, Legon were the giants of the day’s contest.
Represented by Benjamin Quansah Nketsiah and Gakpetor Kekeli the final year students lived up to expectation as they won the contest with a wide margin, showing Aggrey Memorial and Sunyani SHS the exit.

They maintained the lead in the second round, increasing their tally to 36 points, while Aggrey Memorial SHS and Sunyani SHS had 18 points and 13 points respectively.
