The aforementioned Austin Swift continued his dream ride all the way to the top. The Santa Cruz High School alum who brought home a state championship as a senior, has duplicated those efforts yet on a much grander stage.
In a nationally televised event, Austin dropped 12 points and added 6 rebounds to help Cal Poly Pomona seize it's 1st ever D-II National Championship. This just one year removed from a heart-breaking loss in this same game last year. You couldn't ask for a better ending...to a season.. to a career. Not only did he help bring home the title, but he was also named MVP of the entire Elite Eight.
Congrats to him and his family, and hopefully this will open the floodgates to bigger and better things in the world of basketball.
