The Gregory Gorillas Basketball Team’s first game will be Monday the 14th at home against the Chamberlain Cubs. The team consists of seniors Sean Kafka and Sean Curtis; juniors Triv Vosika, Robert Vomacka, and Joseph Veskrna; sophomores Jayd VanDerWerff, Aaron Voigt, Max Klundt, Kolton Salonen, and Dylan Borzich; freshmen Garret Roeder, Blake Combs, Bryan Combs, Blaze Steffan, and Caleb Stuekel; and Foreign Exchange students Daniel Bruque and Oliver Theime.

The Gorillas qualified for the State tournament last year and placed 7th with a record of 19-7. The team lost 6 seniors from last year and are a very young team.
