AMM storms to victory at Chennai
- WINNERS: AMM Matric Hr. Sec School : Abhijit Aravind / Sai Krishna S
- RUNNERS UP: Vidya Mandir Sr. Sec School : Saroop Paul Carr / Atul A Das
As we chug along in our Journey across India, our next stop was at Chennai. Over the last couple of years, the city has always given us a good response and provided some exhilarating quizzing. This edition of the quiz also received enthusiastic support from the schools in the city. ASI Convention Centre was the venue and teams were eager to go for the prelim round with was hosted by Quizmaster Lloyd Saldanha. The prelim was followed by corrections and we arrived at the top six teams that qualified for the final stage round:
- PETIT Seminaire Hr. Sec School, Pondicherry – Bharathi B / Elankumaran R
- Sri Sivaswami Kalalaya Sr. Sec, Chennai – J Santosh Kumaar / S S Shashaank
- Amalorpavam Hr. Sec School, Pondicherry – Sivakumaran R / Samiullah S
- Vidya Mandir Sr. Sec School, Chennai – Saroop Paul Carr / Atul A Das
- St. Patrick Matric Hr. Sec, Pondicherry – R Mithun Krishna / Ms. B Vaishnavi
- AMM Matric Hr. Sec School, Chennai – Abhijit Aravind / Sai Krishna S
Once the finals began, the first round had all teams celebrating their points. With an almost Even-Stevens in the first couple of rounds. Given the choice to answer questions through the buzzer and the quiz usually starts moving in a different direction. It was the buzzer rounds that we saw a see-saw movement on the leader board between Vidya Mandir Sr. Sec School, St. Patrick Matric Hr. Sec, Pondicherry & AMM Matric Hr. Sec School.
Despite an early lead taken by Vidya Mandir; AMM and St. Patricks decided to take matters into their own hands. Some outstanding quizzing saw AMM take a lead and bait St. Patricks into committing an error, which eventually happened in the last question, which gave a huge sigh of relief to AMM. Thus, crowning Abhijit Aravind and Sai Krishna S champions at Chennai.
