Aside a minor change, the Eastern Regional Basketball Qualifiers produced no surprises in representation ahead of next year’s Sprite Ball Championship.

The upcoming edition of Ghana’s biggest High School Basketball Championship comes off from January 11-12 at the El Wak Stadium in Accra.

The Eastern Region has three slots in the national competition with two in the Boys Division and a sole spot in the Girls Division.

Pope John Senior High School and Koforidua Senior High Technical School (KSTS) topped the Boys Division at the regional level to reprise their roles in the upcoming competition.

The pair has dominated the region for several years and has had consistent appearances in Sprite Ball in previous years including the last edition held in January.

However, in the Girls Division, Nkawkaw Senior High School has replaced Methodist Girls High School, Mamfe as regional representatives.

Nkawkaw topped the regional division to return to Sprite Ball after missing out in the last edition; Methodist Girls placed fourth.
