NorCal Swat was among 113 teams that battled it out at the 8th Annual 2015 SANTA CRUZ BOARDWALK JAM AAU Basketball Tournament, June 27-28th.  Led by Coach Cesar Meza, Swat looked to redeem themselves after placing 4th in the 2014 tourney.  “All these other clubs had never heard of Colusa County, until now”-Coach Meza. Swat includes area players from Williams, Colusa, Arbuckle, Maxwell and even Oroville.  “That is why I do what I do. We have so much talent in our area, it’s important to get them out there so they can showcase their skills and hopefully it will open up opportunities for them.”- Meza.

Game 1 against the Supreme Kourt of San Mateo was a good testament for what was to come for the 16U Swat team.  Beating SK 47-44, Swat moved on to the next tier . In game two, after falling behind at the half, Swat prevailed once again outscoring in the fourth, beating Scotts Valley Warriors 49-39.  Game 3, Championship game against the Santa Clara’s Titans was a non-stop, highly competitive battle for top spot. “They were a really good team, fast and gave us a good run but we kept fighting”-Meza. Fight they did, beating the Titans 51-47.
