Valley Viewpoints: Girls basketball

by Chris Hansen of Fulton

The girls travel basketball season has ended for the Fulton 5/6 and 7/8 grade girls and we had a very successful season.

I wanted to especially thank Dan Gilmore who coached both teams with the help of Al Smith for the littles and Joe Pappalardo for the big girls.

Dan teaches at the Fulton Junior High School but lives out of the area. He gives up a lot of family time to coach our girls outside of school work and school teams and we all thank him for that.

It has been two years since the girls have had a home basketball tournament and as a parent I don’t know why.

In the last couple of years, the boys basketball teams in the same age groups have had at least one home tournament a year and sometimes two.
