Inter-form Quiz Round up: Team 1A Defeats Team 1B

Pre-season favourites 1A wasted no time in stamping its class in the opening match of the 2024 Inter-Form Quiz competition at Jamaica College, dispatching neighbours, 1B, 21-8. Led by team captain Christoff Legister, 1A clawed back its First Form Block opponent winning the 3rd section and the match with a series of impetuous presses to overwhelm Team 1B. Legister notes, “To be honest, they surprised us. We did not expect to trail going into the buzzer, but that’s life. In the end, we showed them how to press the buzzer to win a match.”

Team 1B, on the other hand, took consolation having taken the early but marginal lead in the first and second sections. This created an early setback for 1A who boasts two players, Legister and Jaiden Gordon, who recently started training with the senior team. Nonetheless, credit goes to 1B who showed an early fight accentuating their intent to compete for a share of the spoils. Led by Team Captain Jayden Singh, 1B kept 1A honest by exposing their weaknesses in Mathematics and Bible Knowledge. 1B held on the lead 4-3 in the first section, and 12-11 going into the buzzer, but faltered in the buzzer section. Singh added, “We were never afraid of them. We just needed a little bit more speed in the buzzer, as we knew the answers as well. We were just out pressed.”

1A now advances to Wednesdays semi-final where they will meet 1D who edged Team 1C, 19-18. In the other matches, Team 1E denied Team 1F (19-16) to advance to the semi-final where they will meet Team 1G who eked out a narrow 23-22 win over Team 1H.

In other matches, on Tuesday, all 2nd Form teams march into action. Pre-season favourites Team 2H is looking to avenge last year’s loss to then 1B, now 2B.

March 25, 2024 – JC won the second match in the best of three against St. Jago

March 15, 2024 – JC dominated once again.

Tune in on Friday, March 15, 2024 at 6:00pm to witness Match 2 of the quarter-final showdown when Jamaica College goes up against Campion College in the battle of Old Hope Road Schools Challenge Quiz match.

In this best of 3 series, JC leads 1-0, so it’s a do-or-die for Campion College while Jamaica College look to knockout their rivals by winning the series 2-0 and advance to their first semi-final in 31 years.

Led by team captain Jaheem Khouri, the Boys in Blue will take momentum from their wire to wire victory in Match 1, which ended 23-15 in their favour. It was the lowest score for both teams this season, as both teams were uber cautious not to commit an error. Entering the Buzzer section, JC led 21-15 and pressed only once to add a small cushion to their lead. Vice-captain Marvin Whyte noted, “We were somewhat cautious because we knew the scores were close. Next match, Campion will probably be more aggressive, but we’ll be ready to attack before they do.”

Here is JC’s path to the quarterfinals:

First Round: JC 37 – Bridgeport 17

2nd Round: JC 31 – Glenmuir 18

3rd Round: JC 34 – Munro 27

Quarterfinal: (Match 1) JC 23 – Campion 17

Quarterfinal: (Match 2) JC vs Campion

The winner of this series will meet the winner of St. Jago/KC match-up in the semi-final.

JC advance to SCQ Semi-final (February 19 2024)

Jamaica College defeated Campion College 34-27 in the second match of a best of three quarter final SCQ match-up. Already leading the series 1-0, the boys clad in their Navy suits had a wire to wire victory, winning each section to finish ahead of their geographic rivals, located just a mile away from the College.

In doing so, the Collegemen, led by Captain Jaheem Khouri, set up a semi-final best of 3 showdown with defending champions St Jago on March 5, 2024. It was their first semi-final berth for the boys from Hope since 1993. That year, JC defeated St Jago in the quarterfinal to lose to eventual Champions Munro in the one-off semi-final.

But 31 years, later, they returned to the hallowed ground of Schools Challenge Quiz studio to book one of the four semi final spots. The two semi-final winners will go on contest the grand final slated to be televised live on TVJ in a date yet to be determined, but scheduled for the first week of April. The other semi-final features Calabar High vs Titchfield High/Manchester High.

Not taking their opponents lightly, Head Coach of Jamaica College Chanarie Lindsay noted, “It’s back to the drawing board for the boys. We know our strengths and weaknesses and our opponents’, so we will have to devise a strategy to be successful on match day. But we are taking it one match at a time.”

Both teams are familiar with each other, having played numerous practices matches against each other. The Boys from the One College are confident they can beat St Jago and advance to the Finals. Team Captain Jaheem Khouri informed us, “We are Collegemen, we are good at everything. And winning is one of those things. St Jago haven’t played a good team to compete with them. Once we are competitive, it will be a different game.”

While the JC supporters are basking in today’s victory, the Team is back to studying, knowing the enormous task at hand to earn a berth to the final. But one thing remains constant in this team is the spirit of comradeship and loyalty to another.

School Challenge Quiz Team Captain’s testimonial

My name is Romain K Bryan and I’m the current captain of Jamaica College’s School Challenge Quiz team. In general, “quiz” is a team-oriented sport which is geared at not only increasing an individual’s knowledge of various subject areas but also the development of leadership qualities, discipline and it reinforces the value of responsibility which is needed by our men in society.

School Challenge Quiz prepares students for the real world, in which assiduous work, commitment and dedication as well as proper decision making are the primary factors needed for success. The preparation is extremely long and fun-filled, however, I must admit it hasn’t been easy but as the saying goes ‘nothing in life which is worthwhile comes easy’. My experiences on the team over the years has been a good one; there is no “I” in the word team thus, being a role player became fundamental in my modus operandi on the team, encouraging my fellow teammates as well as being a role model for all the players.

We are students first and certainly our careers are of utmost importance; online schooling hasn’t been easy for myself at the Upper 6 level, however, I plan ahead and I am extremely confident in my abilities so there are no worries on my behalf as I am a Collegeman so therefore I am good at everything.

The School Challenge Quiz trophy has been missing at Jamaica College since the 1980s, a lot of students searched and still no trace. As the captain of the 2020-2021 School Challenge Quiz team, it is the utmost duty of myself, teammates and management to return or if not give a sense of direction where to find this trophy. 




The School Challenge Quiz team. This year, 2019, Mr. C. Powell is coaching the team to Victory. So far, so good. Let’s support them as they move through the competition.
