MCFARLAND, Calif. — The McFarland High School girls' basketball team received a police escort this morning on their way to a historic championship game.

The basketball team is on a historic run to Sacramento after a comeback win against Palisades Tuesday night in the SoCal Regional Championships. The girls punched the program’s first ticket to a State Championship with a 68-66 win.

This morning, the team headed off to Sacramento. They were escorted around the city by police cars.

The McFarland Unified School District has suspended all classes this Friday, March 8, to allow students and families to travel to the game.
