The team comprised Form Five students M. Gauuthameiswaran, R. Subhash Daniel Moses and B. Athiseshan.
Gauuthameiswaran said they were surprised to win as the other teams “were so good”.
“It took us a month to prepare,” said the ecstatic 17-year-old after the announcement of the results at the Alor Star Mall on Saturday.
In the lower secondary school category, Form Three students Sara Syakirah Md Jalani, Wan Nurafiqah Izyani Wan Mohd Rushidi and Nur Hidayah Abd Wahab from SMK Agama Kedah made up the winning team.
