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.
