Although THIS B performed the best in the Prelims, they were surprisingly beaten in the semifinal, while THIS A defeated the Pakistan Embassy School in another close match. THIS B, although feeling hopeless after the surprising loss, recovered their Spartan spirits and secured third with a resounding victory over Pakistan Embassy School. Although not Champions, THIS secured second and third place, an impressive performance nonetheless.
