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.
