Having reached the top four, along with Royal College, Maris Stella College and Jaffna Central College, Gateway completed a very successful season by winning the All-Island (Jathika Pasal) Under-20 Schools Basketball Championship that was organised by the Ministry of Education. Prior to reaching the final stage, Gateway had also won the Western Province Tournament.

The final round games were played in Kurunegala. The grand finale saw Gateway beating Maris Stella College, Negombo 67-64. The unbeaten Gateway team was challenged by the boys from Negombo right through the game and at full-time scores was tied at 55-55. At extra time, Gateway’s rising star, Mirtesh Thurairajah rose to the occasion with three 3-pointers to win the nail biting final with a score of 67-64. Quite appropriately, Mirtesh was named the Most Valuable Player (MVP) of the tournament. At the semi-final, Gateway beat Jaffna Central 80-60 and in the quarter-final they beat Trinity College, Kandy 59-46. In the plate-final Royal beat Jaffna Central to secure the 3rd place.
