G.A.T.A. IV (12U) kicked-off their new 2007 season with a strong showing in Austin, Texas. Short-handed due to injuries G.A.T.A. IV still managed to place second. G.A.T.A. IV's only loss was to the host team (Texas Ambassadors-Brazos Valley) in a closely played game.

G.A.T.A. IV's first and only pool game was against the Georgetown Hotshots. G.A.T.A. IV posted a 21 point advantage over the Hotshots. Bracket play had G.A.T.A. IV defeating the Austin Energy by a 15 point margin, G.A.T.A. IV advanced to the finals by claiming a victory over the Westend Hoops. The Championship game featured the host team - Texas Ambassadors - Brazos Valley, an athletic team with great post play. Unfortunately, G.A.T.A. IV was unable to overcome the Austin style refereeing and dropped a hard fought game by 4 points.

This was a good showing for G.A.T.A. IV's first tournament of the 2007 season.
