About Restore the Roar

  Restore the Roar was established in the Fall of 2007 by a dedicated by a dedicated and loyal group of McClatchy Alumni to support McClatchy athletics.  In 2009, Restore the Roar was incorporated as a California non-profit corporation.  Since it began, RTR has helped support recognition of CKM athletes and coaches, secured cash and in-kind donations for football pre-game meals and support for athletes study halls.  RTR has broadened its focus by including support for all sports programs and  including parents of current athletes with alumni on the board of directors.

Restore the Roar will be inducting 44 former student athletes and 3 coaches into the C. K. McClatchy Athletic Hall of Fame at its third annual inductee dinner on October 11, 2014.   Of the inductees, 28 come from the graduating classes of 1980-89, the focus of this year’s selection process.  There are also 16 athletes from prior years.  The event will recognize three outstanding teams from the 1980’s: 1984 Football team, which won 10 games; the 1985 Wrestling team, which swept the Metro League competition; and the 1988 Lady Lions Basketball team, which captured the first Metro League Championship for McClatchy.


As with the first two classes of inductees, this group reflects superior athletic talent and accomplishment.  Among them are:

•Donald Hair (’85) established the state high school record for touchdowns in football scoring 38 TD’s in 1984.

•Brian Bedford (’83) who not only was an all-city quarterback in football, but also established the national high school record for field goal percentage in basketball.

•Krista Margetich (’88) who was the first women athlete in Sacramento to be named to the Optimist All Stars in both basketball and softball.

•Dion James (’80), who played 11 years in Major League Baseball after a stellar career with the Lions.

•Kevin “KC” Clark (’82) who played four seasons for the NFL’s Denver Broncos after earning accolades at McClatchy and San Jose State.

•Mary Bryte Johnson (’77) who earned two letters and earned the #1 singles spot on the boy’s tennis team.  She later was a nationally ranked amateur tennis player.

•Classmates Karen Henderson (’86) and Shannon Padovan (86) went to be college All-Americans in their respective sports.  Henderson in volleyball at Sac State and Padovan in Softball at SCC.


All of the inductees had stellar athletic careers at McClatchy and many played college or professional sports. 


The three outstanding coaches selected are “Dub” Carter, long time track and cross country coach, Charlie Becker who coached men’s and women’s basketball and served as athletic director, and Bernie Church who built an envied baseball program at McClatchy.
