Loyola reclaim Kerala crown

WINNER: Loyola School, Trivandrum - Karthik Prakash Nair and Advaitshankar

RUNNER UP: Bhavans Adarsh Vidyalaya - Atul Chacko Philip and Ravi Krishnan

Over 600 teams at a classy convention centre was a perfect setting for the grand quiz with teams from right across the state converging at Cochin. 'The old order changeth yielding place to the new' quipped quizmaster Pickbrain as he applauded the achievement of the young class ten duo from Loyola School, Trivandrum who were the youngest finalist on stage but went on to reclaim the title for their school after a gap of a few years.

It was a fitting remark to a quiz that witnessed not just the rise of a young champion but also several youngsters from class 8 and 9 taking part in a quiz that was open upto class 12. A very interesting prelim for teams from across the state led to the following finalists…

Bhavans Adarsh Vidyalaya - Atul Chacko Philip and Ravi Krishnan
St.Antony's Kottayam - Allen Jose and Vishnu Sharma
St.Thomas Residential School, Trivandrum - Anand and Nikhil George
MES Udyogmandal - Vivek and Goutham Venkatesh
Bhavans Varuna Vidyalaya - Vivek Venugopal and Anirudh Balagopal
Loyola School, Trivandrum- Karthik Prakash Nair and Advaitshankar

The final was a fantastic thriller which witnessed teams from Bhavans' and St.Thomas take early leads as Loyola and St.Antony's caught up in quick time. As the quiz progressed from one round to another the tension started gripping the entering convention centre.

The buzzers came into play and both Bhavans Adarsh and Loyola moved ahead. The attempt from the other teams to push forward on the buzzer backfired, setting them back by a margin that they could not recover from. In the final round it was a head to head battle between the Bhavans Adarsh duo and Loyola which the latter won on the final question to enter the national final.
