GSYAA Week 7- Finish Strong


Good Morning Everyone!

Week 6 has concluded and I just want to say that this season has started and ended so fast! The encouragement has been great and the intensity of each game has been tremendous. Thank you to each person who represented Gum Springs on the road this week. It makes a difference when we represent "Panther Pride" with the utmost respect. Thank you for representing our community in a great way. This week, our 90 pound team won by forfeit while our Anklebiters, 80 pound and 100 pound teams came up short again. Our record this week was 1-3 and that makes our program record 11-13. Our win percentage so fat this season is 45%. Our goal as a program is to win 70% so we need a good showing from all teams this week. This is our last week of regular season games and everyone is on the road. Our Anklebiters are still looking for their 1st win, our 80 Pound is fighting for seeding, our 90 Pound is trying to keep their undefeated record, and our 100 Pound is fighting for a spot in the playoffs. If you have pictures from the games on Saturday, please send them to gsyaapanthers@gmail.com. You can also tag us on Facebook @ GSYAA and we also have an instagram page @ gsyaa_panthers. Please be on the lookout for other announcements such as Chipotle Night and Winter House Basketball. Here is the lineup for Saturday:
