Presbyterian Senior High School (Osu-PRESEC) Physical Education Department Head Jonathan Bulley has revealed the immense amount of work that went into his outfit’s shock win at the 2018 Sprite Ball Championship.

Osu-PRESEC won its maiden title in January 2018 after clinching a 25-22 win over record winners of the competition Mfantsipim School in the finals.

That was Osu PRESEC’s second win over Mfantsipim in the tournament after obliterating “Kwabotwe” 45-14 in the opening game.

Speaking on Ghana channel TV3 earlier today, Bulley highlighted some of the tough work players had to do to get to the pinnacle. Captain Emmanuel Ojuku Awumiwe joined him on set.

“We had more training time, we had to go to the beach to do more physical workouts and we tried to play on different courts” he said.

Osu-PRESEC heads to this year’s competition as defending champions and has been drawn in Group A with debutants Bishop Herman College and Sekondi College.

This year’s Sprite Ball edition runs from January 11-12 at the El Wak Stadium in Accra with 12 schools competing in the Boys Division and eight schools competing in the Girls Division.
