Editorial: Hardworking Hoopsters

Benjamin Franklin once said, “Energy and persistence conquer all things,” and when it comes to Garden City Athletic Association (GCAA) 3rd-grade boys travel, that was certainly the case. From November through March, the 10-man squad held practices, alternating with game days. The result? The GCAA 3 rd-grade boys travel team wound up securing the Island Garden Super League championship. On the way to beating out 15 other travel/tryout-caliber squads in their division, the GCAA champs wound up playing against fourth-grade teams towards the end of its season.  Once the dust settled, GCAA defeated a Syosset team that had a better regular season record but were unable to rally past the 30-29 final score the game wound up being. Add another prize to the Village of Garden City athletic program trophy case.
