Players, coaches give back to Gridley students

For the eighth year, the Salesian High School boys' basketball team participated in the Gridley Invitational Basketball Tournament. Since 1953, the GIBT has played host to many Northern California high school teams. The tournament is well known for its hospitality and strong community involvement. In fact, the Central Valley city of Gridley is known as "[the] small town that loves company."

This year, appreciative Salesian players looked to give back to the generous Gridley community. Salesian players and coaches took an afternoon off from basketball and books to spend some time with the young students at Wilson Elementary School. The Pride played sports games with the children, signed autographs and talked with the youngsters about the importance of good study habits.
