Championship Years Summary

Here is a summary of Galileo’s Championship Years, courtesy of our Counselor & Parent Liaison, Bai.

Inspired by the recent Football Championship, Mr. Zhen did some research on the legacy of Galileo’s championship years, below is a quick summary of all our championship years.  We have a total of 18 football championships! Amazing! The next sports with the most championships are baseball (10), wrestling (10) and boys basketball (9). Congratulations, Lions!
