Ahmadiyya U-19 basketball team are Copa Cancun Champions 2017

BELIZE CITY, Tue. July 25, 2017–The Ahmadiyya Basketball League sent two teams to the Copa Cancun 2017 tournament, which was held in Cancun, Mexico from the 20th – 23rd July.  The teams where U-17 and U-19 males, and they had to compete with teams from all over Mexico, as well as teams from Guatemala.

Our U-17 team played 6 games, won 5 of them, and lost in the semifinal round.

Our U-19 team also played 6 games, and won them all, including the explosive championship game against the more favored team from Cancun.

Our home-boys brought home the championship hardware and represented us well; and for that, let us congratulate the team coaches, Mr. Dion Ramclam and Mr.  Jamel Wagner, Mr. Brads Neal and all our sponsors.

(Sports Ed. Note: The Ahmadiyya Basketball League earlier this year concluded its U-19 basketball tournament at the Gateway Youth Center basketball court on Gwen Lizarraga High School compound. Congrats to the Ahmadiyya Basketball League organizers, players, coaches and sponsors on this great achievement!)
