Ghana Secondary Technical School (GSTS) will not feature at the next national high school basketball championship (Sprite Ball) after missing out on a place in the regional final.

Qualifiers in the Western Region took place over the weekend with slots up for grabs in the male and female divisions at the next edition of Sprite Ball.

However, St. John’s School, Sekondi and Takoradi Technical Institute (TTI) made it to the finals at the expense of GSTS; St. John’s confirmed its supremacy by clinching the trophy.

Failure to make the tournament means GSTS misses out on the national championship for the first time in over four years.

The Giants clinched third place at the January 2012-2013 edition of Sprite Ball fall further back to arch rival St. John’s who equaled GSTS mark at the last edition in December.

Ahantaman Girls Senior High School will represent the region in the female division; the next Sprite Ball takes place in Accra at the El Wak Stadium from January 4-6, 2018.

Opoku Ware School and Wesley Girls High School are defending champions in the boys and girls divisions respectively.
