Gwen Lizarraga Girls & Sadie Vernon boys are basketball champs!

The Gwen Lizarraga High School girls and the Sadie Vernon Technical High School males are the national ATLIB basketball champions, after winning the two day tournament hosted by the San Pedro High School under the auspices of the Association of Tertiary Level Institutions of Belize (ATLIB) at the Angel Nunez Auditorium on December 12 and 13th. In a much heated competition, the nationals brought out seven high schools from across the country to fight for the hoops title in beautiful La Isla Bonita but only one would reign supreme.
Free throws for the Gwen Lizz team...

Nice layup in traffic..

Sadie Vernon boys took home the net as kings of the court..
So did the Gwen Lizz Girls....respect!
In the male competition, Sadie Vernon Technical High defeated the Sacred Heart College in an exciting encounter 58-53.
In the girl’s side of things, the back to back champs of Gwen Lizarraga came in with a mind set for a three peat. And so they did! Congrats on the 3Peat!
