The Alajo-based preparatory and Junior High School failed to win a single game at the Aviation Social Centre on Monday in the presence of huge numbers.
It was their maiden appearance in the competition and it has come grounding on them that they’ll need more time and space to adjust to the speed and reality of the most prestigious competition amongst basic schools in the country.
They fell to an embarrassing 15-0 defeat to bridesmaid Kotoka International School before they lost out again to Kalvary School to bow out of the one-day championship.
In the run up to the competition on Monday March 7, 2011, they had enjoyed some successes in low friendly matches and Coach Adams is unperturbed about their abysmal showing insisting they will bounce back greatly next year.
‘We knew it was going to be tough in our debut season but I’m not entirely disappointed because we did our best but unfortunately our best was not enough for us’. Adams said.
‘Our team was overawed by the occasion and for some of these players it was their first time of playing in front of such a crowd and naturally they looked a bit jittery on the day. We can only take positive signs from what happened. We’ll bounce back next year and so people that we’ve learnt from our past mistakes’.
