Lyceum International Wattala and Nugegoda were crowned champions in the recently concluded Inter International Under 17 Basketball Tournament, which was organised by Colombo International School at the British School of Colombo Court.
The finals which was originally set to be played at the MCA court was moved to the British School of Colombo court due to the adverse weather conditions. The girl’s final which was played first was between Lyceum International Nugegoda and Gateway College Colombo. Going into the game Gateway College Colombo was expecting sweet revenge after the nail biting loss to the girls from Wattala in the under 19 tournament earlier this year, however LIS Wattala drawing inspiration from that victory continued the momentum with the likes of Hazeena Abdul leading the charge.
