Hilda Koranteng of Nkawkaw Senior High School (Kawsec) comes to the grand finale of the 2010 Sprite Ball Championship with clear orders: Get serious, deliver a title and earn a heroes status.

The 16-year-old point guard showcased individual brilliance to help her school power past Akosombo International School for the second year running in the 2010 edition of the Eastern regional competition at the main basketball court of Koforidua Secondary Technical School (K.S.T.S).

 She was a delight to watch as she dazzled her way through the defence network of their opponent with ease. The young and energetic player grabbed the highest number of baskets in the female category and was arguably the tournament best player.

 She is expected to spearhead the title challenge of her school in the grand finale at the El-Wak Stadium on Wednesday December 22nd and 23rd.

 The mandate hangs on the shoulders of the final year student who is keen to stage a huge claim for the title in two days time.

 The spoken and outspoken word, an understanding of the ultimate requirement necessary for the execution of the plan.

 Undoubtedly the Kumasi-based student will be another big hit when she lines up against some of the regions great. The days are indeed springing fast and for the young and enterprising player, she’s hoping she get her game spot on.

 ‘I am extremely delighted with my performance and that of the entire team and for the second time in a row we’ve managed to win the title’. Koranteng told basketballghana.com

 ‘Hopefully we’ll be able translate our performance in the grand finale and be counted among the best. We didn’t have a great championship in Accra last year and we’re hoping it will not be same situation this time around’.

 ‘We’ve grown and matured as a team and we’ve learnt our lessons very well.. We are not going to be swollen headed and move into serious training because we are coming for the national title in 2010’. she added.

  1. I think that sprite should not organize tournaments for only high schools, but for basketball teams all over Ghana.
