Tributes have been pouring in for the 2015 State Champion Lady Lions basketball team of C.K. McClatchy High School.

On Tuesday, the team and coach Jessica Kunisaki were honored by the Sacramento City Council and then feted during a time out at the Kings game.

The team will receive Stellar Students recognition at Thursday night’s Board of Education meeting. On Friday, the girls will ride on a firetruck through Land Park in a community parade beginning at 12:30 p.m.

The Lady Lions are the first girls team in SCUSD history to win a state championship.
