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.

McClatchy Lady Lions  top Oak Ridge for Girls NorCal D-I Title~ Headed to State Title Game

The Lady Lions captured McClatchy’s first ever CIF NorCal Regional Championship with a 58-49 victory over Oak Ridge of El Dorado Hills.  McClatchy’s stifling defense forced 30 Oak Ridge turnovers, Jordan Cruz led scorers with 19 points and Gigi Garcia added 15 points and pulled down 10 rebounds.  With the victory comes a spot in the State Division I title game next Friday in Berkeley.

The game was much tighter than  the Lions victory over Oak Ridge in the Section Tournament.  In this one, the Lady Lions had eight players score in the contest and held Oak Ridge to no points in the last three minutes for a victory that is historic for the program.  McClatchy will play Serra of Gardena, the Southern Region Champion, at the Haas Pavillion on the UC Berkeley campus.  Game time is 6:00 PM, next Friday, March 27.

There is more on the Lady Lions victory in this SacBee article.  Details on the State Championship Game and ticket information can be found on the CIF website.
