We could not have asked for a better finish to a fantastic tournament! North Valley Baptist and Faith Baptist left everything on the court and wow’d the fans with their athleticism, determination, hustle and team work! Unfortunately in these type games, we can only have ONE winner! This year’s GSBC Fine Arts and Athletic Competition Basketball Champions are the North Valley Baptist Bulldogs!! They beat the Swordsmen of Faith Baptist by a score of 53-42!

The tournament MVP was Brendan Johnson of North Valley as he made many timely baskets for the Bulldogs all throughout the tournament as well as when it mattered most in the championship game! Hats off to the Swordsmen as they left everything on the court! North Valley Baptist wins their first FAAC basketball championship in the last several years while Faith Baptist of Wildomar has lost two straight championship games, but they have been to 5 straight including back to back championship victories before losing these last two!

A huge thank you to Bro. Dan Callaghan, the tournament director! He put in many hours of hard work and planning so that the Fine Arts and Athletic Competition could run smoothly! Another big thank you to President Cameron Giovanelli for supporting the tournament and putting a lot of time and effort into making everything run smoothly! Thank you to the Media Department of GSBC who let us go live for all of the basketball games! Thank you to the I.T. Department of GSBC for letting us use the WiFi and the internet!
