Albert Bonney-Central Regional Physical Education Coordinator- has dismissed statements suggesting his outfit wronged Mfantseman Girls Senior High School by omitting them from qualifiers.

Qualifiers in the Central Region took place at the Robert Mensah Stadium in Cape-Coast to determine teams to represent at the next Sprite Ball Championship in 2018.

Mfantsipim School and St. Augustine’s College will represent the boys division while reigning National Champions Wesley Girls High School and Aggrey Memorial Mount Zion will represent in the female division.

However, Mfantseman’s name was not included in the girl’s roster for the qualifiers sparking several animated debates on the alleged bias treatment.

Bonney addressed the issue stating, “Mfantseman was second to Aggrey (at the zonal games) but Wesley Girls won (the national title) last year so they bring the second placed team in their zone to make it (the roster) six because we have five zones and that is exactly what happened”.

Holy Child placed second behind Wesley Girls at the zonal level but failed to progress beyond the regional preliminary stage after losing two straight games including a 9-14 loss to Swedru Business School.
