GILROY—On Sunday, the Gilroy Junior Softball All Stars proved they are the best in North California.
SUNNYVALE—The Spirit of Morgan Hill 12UB softball team, which includes players from Gilroy, tied for fifth place at the Nor Cal ASA Championships June 26-28. The Spirit’s fifth place finish secured their spot in the ASA Girls’ 12B Western National Tournament July 27 to Aug. 2 in Medford, Ore.
Hundreds of South Valley youth got the chance to learn the game of football Saturday at the Morgan Hill Sports Complex during the San Francisco 49ers Gatorade Jr. Training Camp. Kids ages 7 to 14 were invited to come out and train like a 49er. The participants honed their football skills in areas such as passing, ball carrying and tackling, all while learning how to stay properly hydrated. They also got a chance to play some flag football.
GILROY—Gilroy Unified School District granted a deadline extension to raise funds for the Bert Mar Gymnasium Project, but it turns out it wasn’t needed.
GILROY—As Bert Mar walked the grounds at South Valley Middle School, he was met with big smiles and warm greetings at every turn. Cars that whizzed by the school turned around when they saw him, the drivers eager to say hello. Mar recognized each instantly and answered them with a bright smile, a wave and a unique nickname he’d undoubtedly given them several years ago. He’s a familiar face in Gilroy—and for good reason.
