Gregg Gielas
Brookline's 1982 Hot Shot Champion

Gregg Gielas in 1982

For several years in the late-1970s through the late-1980s the Recreation Center played host to the local Hot Shots competition. The first two rounds were generally held at the Recreation Center and then winners moved on to the State and National Competition.

Brookline had several local kids that performed well in the Hot Shots trials and went on to perform in the state or national competitions. One such local youth was Gregg Gielas in 1982, who went on to finish 7th in the nation.
