On the heels of the girls’ yesteryear success lead by head coach Rebecca Lobo, each of the handful of GBA travel basketball teams spanning grades 3 to 8 advanced deep into 2019 league play offs. Pictured here are the grade 5-6 boys of Team Steele-Lamb who captured the coveted hardware. Their championship game was played in March on the hardwood of Forrest Mars Athletic Center [as in M and M Mars chocolate], at the Hotchkiss School in Lakeville. These ambitious ballers conquered 92 percent of their opponents to secure the #1 seed going into the post-season and ultimately capped their journey with hard-fought finals victories over teams from New York and Connecticut.

To inquire about playing, email or chat with one of the lead coaches: boys grade 4-6, Chris Cramer; boys grade 5-6, Larry Auer and Greg Teclaw; boys grade 7-8, Ben Steele; girls grade 7-8, Rebecca Lobo and Joe Bordonaro. GBA is now gearing up in preseason and thanks all players, volunteers and sponsors: Stitches by Me and Bodyarmor.
