Physical Education Coordinator of the Volta region, Felix Aperkote, wants a positive approach from the region’s representative ahead of the grand finale of the prestigious Sprite Ball Championship in two month’s time.
Four schools booked their place in the December showdown in Accra on Saturday at the Mawuko Girls basketball court by negotiating their respective ties in an attention-grabbing one-day competition.
Ketasco asserted their dominance in the boys division by winning the trophy for the third time while Mawuli shocked pundits by qualifying to the national event at the expense of highly fancied Keta Business School (Ketabusco).
Awudome girls also halted the startling scamper of Nkwanta by lifting the title for the first time in their division while Kadjebi-Asato as almost as a ritual secured their third successive grand finale ticket.
Ketasco especially has raised the flag of the region high in previous editions at the El-Wak stadium and Aperkote wants the other schools to keep that momentum and be counted among the best.
‘Over the past two years or so, our representative in the national event have performed creditably well and so a lot will be on the shoulders of these schools to keep the performance above bar’. Aperkote said
‘The Volta region is coming out strongly as a powerhouse in the game and I’m happy with what I’ve witnessed today and hopefully they will translate such performance in the national event’.
He added: ‘It imperative they keep training and eschew every form of complacency as they make the journey to Accra. I wish to congratulate the qualifying teams and wish the best of luck’.
