T.I. Ahmediyya Senior High School’s basketball team will begin a residential training camp on Thursday at the school premises for Sprite Ball.
The two time defending champions head into next year’s championship as overwhelming favorites having won consecutive championships in the past two editions.
The 2016 edition of Sprite Ball will be staged between January 3-7 at El-Wak Stadium in Accra, Ghana’s capital city. The tournament is set to have 26 schools compete against each other in boys’ and girls’ categories respectively.
Despite their supreme form ahead of the championship, T.I. AMASS will be without influential captain Rachel Obeng who is on an athletic scholarship in the United States Of America.
The former Most Valuable Player’s infectious play made light work of opposing teams and her highlight reel antics made fans’ jaws drop anytime she touched the ball.
Though she will be sorely missed, T.I. AMASS has Center Isha and Forward Becky return from last year’s championship winning team.
The school will represent the Ashanti Region with Kumasi Girls’ Senior High School in the female division whereas Opoku Ware and Prempeh College do same in the male division.
