Mawuli Senior High stage a return to the finals of the 2015/16 Sprite Ball finals after beating main rivals Keta Senior High to the slot in an exciting Volta Regional qualifiers.
Kadjebi-Asato will also mark their debut after picking the second available slot in the boys division following a fairy tale story this term.
The two schools will represent the Volta Region in the boys division with giants Ketasco missing out in a shocking fashion.
Shockingly, the presence of the two schools means three-time national finalists Keta Senior High School, will not be participating in the competition. Mawuli beat Keta in the regional semifinal and extended the winning streak by defeating surprise package Kadjebi Asafo in the final game.
Mawuli return to Sprite Ball after a two year absence from the nationally acclaimed basketball tournament.
In the girls’ division, Awudome Senior High School picked up the region’s sole qualification ticket to make yet another appearance at the championships.
Mawuli and Kadjebi overcame a competitive field that included the likes of Keta Secondary School, Bishop Herman College and St. Paul’s Senior High School in the boys’ divison.
The pair will look to extend Volta Region’s impressive run in Sprite Ball since its’ maiden appearance in 2008.
Representatives of the region particularly Keta, have chalked massive success in the tournament by winning the title in 2014 and finishing second on three separate occasion.
Awudome made light work of the opposition in the girls’ division that included OLA Girls Senior High School and Anlo Senior High School. Awudome will seek a place in the latter stages of the championship after coming up short in their previous appearances.
