GVBL Tournament Teams
4th Grade Girls - DIAMONDS
The Diamonds are preparing for the James McKay tournament the weekend of March 14th.

The Storm competed in their first ICBA playoff game on Sunday and won over a scrappy Hatboro Horsham team. They will move onto the semi-final game against a solid Phoenixville team at some point in the next week. The Storm also finished out their Malvern League schedule against a strong Springfield team. They came out on the short end, but will use it as a way to learn what to improve upon and work on in the future. 
6th Grade Girls - LIGHTNING
It was a successful weekend for the Lightning, having won their Malvern league game 36-20. Their ICBA playoff game is Tuesday. They hope to end the season on a winning note.
7th Grade Boys - PATRIOTS 2025
Special thanks for Coach Weikert and Coach Wallace for guest bartending at the Locust Lane Toss & Tailgate 2020 Pregame! Thank you to everyone that came out to show their support and have some fun.

7th Grade Girls - TITANS
The Titans finished up their Malvern League season in style with two back to back wins on Sunday. They beat the Kennett Crush 32-25 and then rolled the Junior Jags 34-17. Great job, Titans!
The Division 1 ICBA playoffs begin Monday with a rematch against Deep Run. The girls split the season series 1-1 and are optimistic about progressing to a semifinal matchup against powerhouse Perkiomen Valley.
