GALESBURG — Playing in the Galesburg Summer League began at the beginning of the month.

And the GSL is a labor of love for Galesburg girls basketball coach Evan Massey, who has guided the Silver Streaks for 44 seasons and accumulated a 966-382 overall record in that time span.

Massey knows it takes a collective unit to be successful, and Galesburg has been under his watch. Try 13 Western Big 6 Conference titles, 25 regional titles, 10 sectional crowns and five top five finishes in the state tournament for the Streaks. Galesburg’s latest regional crown came this past winter.

The GSL is a reason for the success, and it has grown to become the oldest and largest girls summer basketball league in Illinois. The GSL ran for 32 consecutive summers until action was put on hold in 2020 due to the coronavirus pandemic. The GSL started back up last June, which means this is the 34th summer Galesburg has partaken in it.
