SCUSD cuts the ribbon on $2.2 million McClatchy gym upgrade
Sacramento City Unified officials cut the ribbon on C.K. McClatchy High School’s newly renovated gym at a ceremony on Friday.
McClatchy’s gym, opened with the school in 1937, lacked air conditioning until the $2.2 million renovation, which began last summer. In addition to a new HVAC system, the gym was upgraded with new bleachers, new energy-efficient lighting, refinished flooring and remodeled locker rooms and restrooms. The gym is home to the Lions’ winning basketball and wrestling programs.
The gym renovation is funded by Measure R bonds. Sacramento voters approved Measures Q and R – facilities bonds for Sac City schools – in November 2012.
McClatchy’s girls’ basketball team is undefeated in league play. After the ribbon-cutting, the varsity team maintained its winning streak by defeating Laguna Creek 66-28.
