Head Coach of Wesley Girls High School Basketball Team Roger Kofi Abaidoo has stated his team gave off its best despite failing to qualify to the knockout stage at this year’s Sprite Ball Championship.
Wesley Girls rolled into the competition as defending champions but fared poorly as they got bundled out of the tournament after failing to progress beyond Group A.
After winning its third national title, Wesley Girls won the Central Region Qualifiers setting the tone for a title defense which failed to materialize.
Speaking to Basketballghana.com, Abaidoo pointed out his side didn’t relent in its efforts saying, “All the teams that came were looking for the defending champions. At least we tried our best…we will improve on our best the next time”.
Wesley Girls lost its opening tie to Accra Wesley Girls and recovered to clinch a 29-23 win over former winners T.I. Ahmadiyya in the second game.
However, losses to Ahantaman Girls Senior High School and West Africa Senior High School ended the Cape-Coast side’s campaign.
The division was won by Kumasi Girls High School.
