Four female and four male teams face off for the coveted title of National Champions. Participants included the female teams from San Pedro Junior College (SPJC) and Centro Escolar Mexico Junior College (CEMJC) representing the north, while the south was represented by the University of Belize (UB) and Stann Creek Ecumenical Junior College (SCEJC). Representation for the male teams included CEMJC and Saint John’s College Junior College (SJCJC) from the north, and UB and Sacred Heart Junior College (SHJC) from the south. Unfortunately, competition proved to be too tough from the SPJC girls as the championship went to UB’s female team. Taking the male championship was the CEMJC team.SPJC ATLIB Northern Regionals-1

“We are proud of our girls no matter the outcome. They may have come in fourth place, but they are still regional champions. This was one of the first times we have sent a female team, and they did amazingly. We would like to thank everyone that traveled along with us to support our team. Also big thanks goes out to all those who supported the girls by donating,” said Froylan Gilharry, Coach of the SPJC female football team.
