C.K. McClatchy High School’s girls varsity cross country team, coached by teacher Julie Watkins, has qualified for the state championship meet on Saturday, November 28, in Folsom.

“To my knowledge this is the first McClatchy boys or girls team to qualify for the state meet in the school’s history,” said CKM Athletic Director Rob Feickert.

Sophomore boys won the CIF Sac-Joaquin section cross country championship but because there is no state meet for levels below varsity their season is over. The girls tennis team won the Metro League Championship and the girls golf team won the 2015 Sac-Joaquin Division II championship.

Meanwhile, senior Gigi Garcia, who helped the Lady Lions win the state basketball championship last spring, has signed with the University of Washington.
