GPMS Baseball Wins Sectional!! Off to State!!!
Posted on 09/30/2014
MS SectionalThis past Saturday, the Grant Park Middle School Baseball team  earned a trip to the IESA State Finals by capturing the BVM Sectional crown, defeating Pontiac St. Mary's by a score of 5-1.  The boys , along with Head Coach Desidero and Assistant Coach Fick have accomplished Elite 8 status for Grant Park Middle School, and we could not be prouder of their exemplary play as well as great representation of the entire Grant Park community.

The title game was played in front of dozens of supporters, including friends, family and community members.  Both teams demonstrated strengths that clearly befit both being in the championship; however,  the young Dragons scored early and closed the deal!  All players from Grant Park contributed to the win by playing strong, smart defense and demonstrating a positive offense with timely hitting and strategic base running!! 

The coaches and team  will continue their trek this coming Friday at the IESA State Championships in Peoria (iesa.org).  They will play Gifford on Friday at 11:30 AM at the Eastside Centre in East Peoria.  We will post more details in the next couple of days.

The entire GP Family wishes them the best of luck and continued success !!  Bravo!​
