St. John’s School, Sekondi surprised many at the last Sprite Ball Championship held in December 2016 and have ambitions of bettering the end product in the upcoming edition.
Next year’s competition takes place from January 4-6, 2018 at the El Wak Stadium in Ghana’s capital Accra with 26 schools set to compete.
St. John’s beat Pope John Senior High to clinch third place at the national event to register its highest finish at the games following several appearances.
Prior to next year’s event, the school has grand plans of improving its achievement by taking aim at the coveted trophy which toured through the school.
“This time around, it is the turn of St. John’s” stated Coach Ebenezer Boateng in an interview with Basketballghana.com during the Western Region leg of the Sprite Ball Trophy Tour and Clinic.
The Saints topped the regional qualifiers to return to the national event with Takoradi Technical Institute snatching the remaining slot in the boys division.
Ahantaman Girls Senior High School will represent the region in the female division. However, no team from the region has lifted the Trophy.
