2018 Sprite Ball Champions Kumasi Girls Senior High School have finally gotten the hearty welcome trophy arrival they deserve following thier legendary performance at the competition.
The playing unit got a rousing welcome from fellow students for winning the school’s first ever national basketball title.
Traffic on the Abrepo road where the school is located was halted for several minutes as students joined school staff to parade through the streets flanking the giant trophy.
The parade stopped at the home of Ernest Asamaoah-Yaw, a prominent member of the school’s Board of Directors where the veteran administrator congratulated the team for the wonderful achievement.
Despite lacking a standard court, Kumasi Girls continued its upward trend in the women’s division placing first.The school’s make shift basketball court has just one rim which is in bad condition and spots a metal backboard.
Headmistress Margaret McDavis Asamoah credited the team’s success to focus and determination while persevering over the obstacles at the school.
Kumasi Girls win is the second for Ashanti Region in the women’s division since bitter rival T.I.Ahmadiyya Senior High School won the competition in 2014 and 2015.
