The SD Bulldogs 13U 7th grade Silver team of the San Dieguito Boys & Girls Clubs won the championship of the Thrive San Diego Basketball 2018 Spring League, 7th Grade "A" Division. The championship game took place at the historic Municipal Gym in Balboa Park, San Diego on June 10. The championship game was a rematch between two 7-1 teams, which had met exactly one week earlier and won by the Bulldogs by only 2 points with a buzzer beater by Junah Lee. The championship game pitted two sharpshooting teams against each other, the Bulldogs and SD Republic, but the Bulldogs defense and great teamwork is what gave them the championship. Final score was 48-42.
The SD Bulldogs are led by San Diego State Aztecs legend DJ Gay, who, along with teammate Kawhi Leonard, led the team to the record-breaking 34-3, NCAA Sweet 16 appearance in 2011 and a finalist for the prestigious Bob Cousy Award. On Sept. 16, 2017 DJ, along with former men’s basketball head coach Steve Fisher, were inducted to the Aztec Hall of Fame.
