Legislature to honor McClymonds Warriors

By Josh Richman
Friday, May 9th, 2008 at 6:29 am in Assembly, California State Senate, Oakland, Sacramento, Sandre Swanson.

The Assembly will honor Oakland’s McClymonds High School Warriors boys’ basketball team for their state championship and perfect 32-0 season at 9:30 a.m. this coming Monday, May 12.

“This was an outstanding accomplishment for this team,” Assemblyman Sandre Swanson, D-Oakland, said in a news release. “The boys worked incredibly hard throughout the season, and their victory is an historic point of pride for the school and the community.”

Swanson will present a resolution to commemorate the Warriors’ accomplishment, and coach Dwight Nathaniel — who lead the team to victory — will also receive special recognition on his retirement after 13 years of service. After the ceremony, there will be a special reception for the team at the Capitol, followed by a ceremony in the state Senate also recognizing the team as state champions.

The Warriors beat Compton’s Dominguez High School in March to win the boy’s Division I State Championship. It’s McClymonds’ first state title, and the East Bay’s first perfect season since the 1970 Berkeley squad.
