C.K. McClatchy High School’s girls varsity basketball team is on a hot streak, winning 22 out of the last 23 games, including a 54-29 victory against the Dragons of Sacramento Charter High School.

The team’s remarkable performance under the guidance of coach Jessica Kunisaki recently drew the attention of Sports Star magazine, which devoted a four-page spread to the sudden rise of the Lions. The story makes special note of the team’s defeat of rival Sac High.

“For 92 games, a span of eight years and three days to be exact, Sacramento held reign over the Metro,” writes reporter Trevor Horn. “Then on Jan. 23, McClatchy — a team that has just one senior — outplayed the Dragons in every sense of the game, winning 54-29 and placing themselves at the top of the pecking order in their league and throughout the region.”
