We know that the Gifford HIgh School boys participated in athletics against kids from other schools.
Basketball, baseball and possibly track may have all been offered at one time. School team uniform colors
and fight song, as well as coach's names and season records, are all items we hope add to this page.
The Gifford High School boys competed in the annual IHSA State Tournament for certain. We have found two scores for Gifford
in the District Tournament from the 1930s on a website titled "Illinois Postseason Basketball Scores
". Those scores are posted below. If you have any further information regarding Gifford High School basketball please contact
