    GARAMENDI of california in the house of representatives Thursday, January 7, 2016 Mr. GARAMENDI. Mr. Speaker, before the holiday break, I rose to congratulate the East Nicolaus High School Spartans from Sutter County for advancing to the CIF Division VI-AA Football Championship game. At that time, they were about to make a 500-mile road trip to face Coronado, a school four times their size.

    Well, Mr. Speaker, I rise today to say that the Spartans may have been underdogs in that game, but that didn't matter to them: on December 28, they won the championship game 16-6. Quarterback S.J. Brown threw for a touchdown and rushed for another. Donovan Switalski had 25 carries for 135 yards. And on defense, cornerback Eddie Herrera intercepted two passes.

    These were great individual efforts, but as a former lineman for the Cal Bears, I know that it takes a full team effort to pull off a win like this. I congratulate Coach Travis Barker and the entire East Nicolaus team for making Sutter County and the entire 3rd Congressional District proud.
