The third time did the charm for the Liguanea, St Andrew-based high school Campion College in Television Jamaica’s Schools’ Challenge Quiz grand finale.
Campion, in its third finale in five years turned in a credible performance in the high-tension clash to beat St Jago High School.
Members of both teams were in tears after the final bell with St Jago’s 13-year-old team member Leroy Cassanova inconsolable.
The Spanish Town-based school had earlier won the toss and asked Campion College to go first.
