Congratulations to the 2016-17 GBB team on another great season. The Little Cyclones finished 15-8 overall. They finished 4-6 (4th) in the Central conference of the CIML. The season came to an end in a tightly contested loss to the eventual State Champion Valley Tigers.

Ryan Weiss garnered honors for All-Region for the IBCA District 8 as well as the IGCA West All-District team. She was also named unanimous 1st team all-conference in a very competitive conference that featured the six toughest schedules in the state.

Weiss graduates as a 1,000 point scorer (the school’s 4th) as well as the all-time leading three point shooter in school history and is in the top 10 in 5 categories- the only player in school history- points, rebounds, three pointers made, steals, & assists.

Amara Lipsey, Kelly Friedrich, Katelyn Courtney, and Adriana Alvarez were named honorable mention all-conference.

The Little Cyclones said goodbye to a fine batch of 4 seniors (Adriana Alvarez, Natalie Grodnitzky, Anna Rood, & Ryan Weiss). who are headed to college. We wish them well and thank them for their contributions over the last four years.
