St Mary’s have been dealt a severe blow after power forward Ama Serwaa Mitchual returned to the Unites States of America due to ‘family issues’.
The 14-year-old has re-joined his school in the States due to pressing family issues.
The youngster will therefore be unavailable for this year’s Sprite Ball Championship.
“Hey everyone I’m very sorry to inform you that I have returned to the United States of America due to family issues,” Ama posted on her facebook page
“I thank you for an amazing experience. It was truly something I will cherish forever.
“Who knows I may even surprise you all in playing another Sprite Ball Championship.
“Thank you so much for the love you showed me during my stay in our country. God bless you all.”
Mitchual was a revelation at the 2013 edition of the competition where she inspired St Mary’s to their first finals with breathtaking skills at the centre court of the Aviation Social Centre.
The power forward was being courted by a number of high-profile schools including Central Regional giants Wesley Girls Senior High.
But she has delivered the ultimate sucker punch to the ambitions of the Cape Coast-based school by re-joining his former school in America.
Mitchual missed out on the MVP award after she lost the individual accolade to Aggrey Memorial’s Matilda Gordon.
