Thursday, October 12, 2017

The Gateway Community College (GCC) Athletic Department is sponsoring the third annual Alumni Basketball Game on October 21 from 1:00 p.m. to 5:00 p.m, in the gymnasium of Wexler Grant Community School. The event raises funds to support the GCC men’s and woman’s basketball teams.

All are invited for an afternoon of food, music and sport with GCC faculty, staff, students and alumni, to raise money to support the athletic program at GCC.

The GCC Lions--men’s and women’s teams--earned champion status in the NJCAA leagues throughout the years, and the Lady Lions distinguished themselves with the 2016-2017 NJCAA Division III, ranking 9th in the nation. The men’s team has made several appearances in the NJCAA Region XXI tournament. Several GCC players have been named All-American as well as all New-England.

Proceeds from the Alumni Basketball Game enhance the overall student-athletic experience and strengthen the connection between Gateway’s athletic department, its alumni, and friends. “The alumni game creates a bridge between old players and current players and allows alumni to be supportive,” says Coach John Stewart.

Wexler Grant Community School is located at 55 Foote Street in New Haven. Tickets are $5 and are available by email to or or by calling (203) 285-2213.To support the athletics program at Gateway Community College, contact the GCC Foundation at (203) 285-2167.
