St. Judes Kotagiri clinch Kovai
WINNER: St. Judes Kotagiri - Ashik Reji and Ashwin Philip
RUNNER UP: GKD Matric - M Sharat Chandar and A. S. Hari Krishna


“Coimbatore is one city where I see a marked improvement in the last couple of years,” remarked quizmaster Pickbrain as he walked on stage to welcome the eager students to the city edition of the nation-wide quiz. Close to 1000 students took part from not just Coimbatore but from Ooty, Coonoor, Kotagiri, Pollachi, Salem and Tirupur as well. A tricky prelim led to the following finalists.

GKD Matric - M Sharat Chandar and A. S. Hari Krishna
Stanes Coonoor - Santosh and Parikshith Mohan
St.Jude’s Kotagiri - Ashik Reji and Ashwin Philip
SBOA Matric - Praveen and Suryakhanth
Satchidananda Jyothiniketan, Mettupalayam - Jaiwanth and Shashikiran
Suguna PIP - Jaya Aditya and V. S. Rakesh

The final was a thriller with St. Judes and Suguna PIP getting off to a quick start. The duo from Judes kept the tempo and led the first couple of rounds and they progressed with immense confidence.

In the TCS round, the boys from GKD Matric inched forward and in the next rounds it was Stanes, Coonoor and GKD that dominated with St. Judes staying silent on the buzzer, though still in the lead. The question one seemed to be asking, was if the boys from St. Judes were being over cautious as soon enough the GKD boys were closing in on them.

As the excitement mounted and the quiz inched to the final question, St. Judes managed to pull off the final question and clinch the title. The host Mr. Ravi Vishwanthan, Head of TCS Chennai and Emerging Markets, appreciated the teams and said, “Having seen the Chennai final, this was a really gripping final that amazed me”.
