Columbia, Ca — Columbia College is hosting a unique basketball tournament.
Eight junior college and eight high school teams are playing over the next three days in the Memorial Holiday Classic.
Claim Jumpers´ Athletic Director and Head Coach Nate Rien says the idea came up about a year ago. Rien says “We really enjoy watching high school games and there´s so many high school games going on during the holidays that you feel like you miss out on something if you have a home tournament.”
On the high school level, Summerville will meet Sierra of Manteca at four o´clock this afternoon. On the junior college level, Columbia will face Canada College of Redwood City at nine o´clock this evening.
