SCQ : Campion College speeds past Holy Childhood
Despite beating Holy Childhood High School by eight points to advance to third round of TVJ School's Challenge Quiz, Campion College's head coach, Troy Stone, thinks his team has to rectify some nagging issues if they are going to be the champions this year.
In the match that was broadcasted on TVJ yesterday, Stone's team pulled ahead in the speed challenge section to win 32-24.
"We are glad that we won the match but it is quite apparent that we need to go back to the drawing board and fix some issues that we have been having," Stone said.
Campion and Holy Childhood were deadlocked nine points apiece at the end of the opening challenge. The speed challenge section ended 30-22 in favour of Campion, and both teams were only able to gain two points each in the buzzer section.
Stone said his main concern was that his team was "moving slowly" in the buzzer section.
Campion College, which is entering the competition for the fifth time, has reached the final twice and has been knocked out in the semi-final stage once.
"The students at Campion are very brilliant. We have sufficient material and we have sufficient methods that we can employ, so putting those together, I am sure we can come up with a championship," Stone said.
Gracious in defeat, Holy Childhood's head coach, Christopher Douglas, congratulated Campion College.
"They played well and we wish Campion the best for the rest of the competition," Douglas said.
He said that Holy Childhood needs to develop a school challenge quiz culture at the school in order for the team to consistently advance beyond the second round.
"We want to get everybody involved. So we going to start a culture of school challenge quiz," Douglas said.
Campion College will take on Dinthill Technical High School in their next match.
