Over two years ago, a small group of parents formed a project team with a single goal in mind:  to explore ways to expand the use of the limited field space at Glenbard West High School.  Appropriately, this small group called itself "Gain Ground." Gain Ground is a group of local residents dedicated to creating multiple-use athletic facilities at Glenbard West High School for the benefit of the entire community of Glen Ellyn.  Gain Ground at West is making tremendous strides and is becoming large in size, scope and stature in the Glen Ellyn community.



If you'd like to help fundraise for Gain Ground at West, check out this link:

Glen Ellyn Titans Basketball is a feeder program for the Glenbard West High School basketball program. It offers the opportunity to participate in a competitive travel program for both boys and girls. Its goal is to build a competitive junior basketball program that is recognized as having players, coaches and parents who demonstrate good sportsmanship and integrity at all times.



Since 1999, over 1,500 players have participated in the program. The program offers players an opportunity to practice and experience travel quality games, tournaments and league play. The level of play is competitive and a high level commitment by both players and parents to the program is expected. Those eligible players include both boys and girls, grades 4th-8th who live within Glenbard West's High School District 87 boundaries.



The 2008-2009 Winter season began in early November and ends mid March. To help fundraise for the program, go to:

Well, tonight's another big game for the undefeated Glenbard West Hilltoppers! After destroying DGN during the regular season, the Hitters need to come out strong and fast to keep DGN from gaining any confidence or hope of winning. I think Glenbard West will handle them again though, I'm guessing 28-7 tonight, on a sloppy field due to the recent rain. Go Hilltoppers!
