Diplomats capture the SWS Holiday Championships for the 14U GOLD Division

The Southwest Showcase Holiday Classic hosted most of the top boys youth club teams in the state of Arizona over the December 5th-6th weekend. This year’s event was held at the American Sports Center in Avondale Arizona. The event proved to be the most competitive tournament of the fall.

The Diplomats outlasted the Ventura Vipers 2020 in a classic 14U Gold Championship. Both teams are loaded with some of the best talent in the 2020 class. The semi-finals featured four extremely competitive teams: Arizona Rebels 2020, Gamepoint (California), Diplomats and the Ventura Vipers.

Ricardo Sarmiento (Diplomats, 2021) was named the tournament MVP. Sarmiento was clutch in the championship game with timely scoring late in the fourth quarter. Nico Mannion (Ventura Vipers 2020) was outstanding all weekend and could possibly enter high school next year as the overall top prospect for the 2020 class.

Next Event: SWS Spring Championships: Feb 27th-28th.  ASC, KROC and Camelback HS.  10U, 11U, 12U Gold, 12U Silver, 13U Gold, 13U Silver, 14U Gold, 14U Silver.

Main Event: April 1sti 3rd, 2016
