The East Nicolaus High football program will look to make area history this weekend when the Spartans travel to Southern California to compete for the CIF State championship.

East Nicolaus will face Coronado on Saturday night at 6 p.m. at Clairemont High in San Diego for the Div. VI-AA title.

The team is scheduled to depart from Trowbridge between 11 a.m.-noon on Thursday after taking their final exams. The trip to San Diego is about 522 miles.

A contingent of cheerleaders and other well-wishers will follow the team on Friday, and a rooter bus with family members, students and other fans will leave early Saturday morning.

After playing on Saturday night, the team will stay the night in San Diego and return to Sutter County on Sunday.

The game will not be broadcast on TV or online.
