The Dublin High Varsity Boys Basketball team just concluded its appearance in the prestigious Gridley Invitational Basketball Tournament by dropping a narrow 62-59 decision to Sheldon of Sacramento in the Consolation Championship. The game was a rematch of the 2020 CIF Open Division NorCal Semi-final and was a back-and-forth affair throughout.

Dublin dropped its opening game against Sacramento High on Thursday before rallying back in the second half to defeat Salesian 73-63 on Friday. The Gaels outscored the Pride 27-11 in the 3rd quarter to turn a 37-29 halftime deficit into a lead in which it would never relinquish.

Despite going 1-2 in the tournament, the Gaels benefitted from the experience playing some of Northern California’s top teams. Courtney Anderson Jr. also shined, compiling a total of 96 points in the 3 games to nearly set the tournament record for points scored.

Closer to home, the Freshmen Boys Basketball team won the San Lorenzo Tournament by defeating San Ramon Valley 55-54 in the championship game. Dublin posted an opening round 62-18 win over the host school (San Lorenzo) and beat California 58-21 in the semifinals. The Gaels are now 6-1 overall on the season and have appearances in the finals of both tournaments in which they have participated. Dublin’s Junior Varsity team also had a successful weekend, going 2-1 in the Newark Memorial Tournament. After dropping an opening round 67-65 contest to a strong St. Francis squad, the Gaels rallied to defeat American and then knocked off Bellarmine 64-63 to claim the Consolation Championship and improve their mark on the year to 3-1 overall.

After starting the season 4-0, the Varsity Girls Basketball team lost their first game of the season on Friday to San Leandro 54-41 and are now 4-1 overall. Meanwhile, the JV squad improved to an identical 4-1 record after defeating the Pirates 45-28.

In soccer action, the Varsity Boys tied Heritage 1-1 and will enter East Bay Athletic League action this week with a record of 2-1-1 overall.
