Team Profile

Gonzaga Preparatory High School, located in Spokane, WA, is making its debut appearance in the Gonzaga DC Classic. The Bullpups boast a 52-2 record the last two seasons with the only two losses coming in national tournaments. After back to back state 4A championships in 2018 and 2019, this year’s Bullpup team is looking to reload under the senior leadership of shooting guard, Liam Lloyd, who averaged 13 points per game last season as a starter. Coach Matty McIntyre will look to Lloyd and forward/post Jayden Stevens, his only other returner from last year’s team, as well as newcomers, Hodges Flemming and Joe Few, to instill the Bullpups’ trademark swarming defense and make a run at championships of their league and at the state tournament. Notable alumni of Gonzaga Prep include recent graduate, Anton Watson, a three time MVP of the Greater Spokane League, a two time MVP of the State 4A tournament and a current member of the Gonzaga University Bulldog basketball team in Spokane.

School Profile

Gonzaga Preparatory School (G-Prep) was founded in 1887 by Father Joseph Cataldo, Society of Jesus (S.J.), along with eight other soon-to-be faculty members in the basement of what is now the Gonzaga University administration building in Spokane. In 1922, the all-boys high school became a formal department of Gonzaga University. In 1954, the school moved to its present site in the Logan neighborhood of Spokane, and became co-educational in 1975. G-Prep is within the Diocese of Spokane and is administered separately from the university.

G-Prep exists to support the life of the Catholic Church in the Inland Northwest by seeking to serve all families who desire a Catholic education in the Jesuit tradition for their children. The school’s pledge is to provide--together with the parents, alumni, and community--an education that seeks to form Christian leaders spiritually, physically, intellectually, and culturally. Guided by the Gospel values of love and justice, students are challenged to fulfill their potential as life- long learners in service to others.

In athletics, the Bullpups compete in the Washington State 4A classification and are part of the Greater Spokane League (GSL) of 10 schools in the area. The Bullpups offer ten athletic opportunities for boys and girls: for boys, football, cross country, basketball, wrestling, baseball, tennis, soccer, track, lacrosse, and golf; and for girls, volleyball, soccer, cross country, basketball, tennis, softball, track, golf, lacrosse, and cheerleading. More than sixty-five percent of Gonzaga Prep's nearly 900 students participate in athletics.

Illustrious graduates of Gonzaga Prep include crooner Bing Crosby, former Speaker of the U.S. House of Representatives Tom Foley, and National Basketball Association Hall of Fame member John Stockton.
