Trip to Salem

Salem gym was a neat old gym with balconies around it.
Veteran Streaks fan, Steve Bryant said it reminded him
of old Steele Gym in downtown Galesburg.
This past weekend we went to Salem to play basketball. It was one of the best run tourneys/camps we have been to. Very good facilities, on time, good competition, and well officiated- it was very worthwhile.

It is always nice to go some place where you play people you don't see. I think this enables players to be more focused on their game and their team vs. being worried about other teams. The competition level in southern Illinois is outstanding.

Our FS age squad went through the weekend with a 7-1 record. Our JV squad went 4-2 and has shown very good improvement.

Our varsity age squad went 5-3, with losses to Flora, Edwardsville, and Belthalo Civic Memorial. Our first day we went 2-1 but did not show great toughness. On the second day we went 1-2 and it may have been our best day of the summer. Vs. very good teams in Edwardsville and Civic Memorial, we showed much improved focus and toughness handling quality opponents. On Sunday we finished by going 2-0, including a very impressive win vs. Salem.

Hope the girls enjoyed it, it was a good basketball weekend for Galesburg.
