Qualifiers in Ghana’s Western Region for the Sprite Ball Championship is due to be honored on Saturday, December 2.

The games fall in line with a series of qualifiers to determine high school male and female teams in the West African country’s most celebrated high school basketball event.

Originally, the Western Region’s fixtures were scheduled to follow Central Region’s version but qualifiers for the latter have been moved to December 5 at the Robert Mensah Stadium in Cape-Coast.

While no team from the region has won the ultimate trophy, the region’s representatives at the last edition hinted at a better outcome in the upcoming edition.

St. John’s School (Sekondi) matched arch rival Ghana Secondary Technical School’s feat by clinching bronze in the male division.

Ahantaman Girls Senior High School returned to the national championship after a long absence to narrowly miss out on a final four place in the female division.

The likes of Fijai and consistent representative Shama Senior High Schools respectively will compete for places at the national tournament.

The next Sprite Ball takes place at the El Wak Stadium in Accra in January 2018.
