SCUSD to celebrate $2.2 million McClatchy gym upgrade
78-year-old gym now has air conditioning for the first time

Press release

February 4, 2015 (Sacramento):  SCUSD will cut the ribbon on C.K. McClatchy High School’s newly renovated gym on Friday (February 6). The ceremony will take place just before McClatchy’s No. 1-ranked girls basketball team takes on the Cardinals of Laguna Creek.

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. The Lions are led by Destiny Lee, a senior who has signed with the University of Nevada, Las Vegas, for the fall.
