Lady Warriors Back-To-Back SYL Champions
Thurman Named SYL MVP


Under second year coach Jimi Perkins, the 2019-20 Lady Warriors captured a South Yosemite League championship.
The Warriors were a perfect 10-0 in league play to win back-to-back league titles.

A few noteworthy team records were also accomplished --- including a winning streak of 13 straight games --- tieing the school record along with the 2003-04 team.
The Lady Warriors also scored 82 points in a game against Mira Monte, the second best single game total in school history (85 points is the record).

Throughout the season, Tehachapi was led by their dynamic center Teagan Thurman, a four-year starter, who was named the league MVP.
Thurman led the team in both scoring and reounds, averaging 22 points, and 12 rebounds, per game. Aleiyah Bryant was also a first team
All-SYL selection while Emily Williams and Sara Heier were selected to the second team. The Lady Warriors suffered a big blow in
late January when veteran player Irey Sandholdt when down with a season ending injury.

The Lady Warriors were 5-1 in pre-league play; 10-0 in SYL play; and 3-1 in the first ever South Yosemite Conference Tournament.
In the tournament, the Warriors only loss was to a highly touted Bakersfield Driller team --- the two-time defending DII central section champions.

The Warriors entered the post-season as the number two seed in the Central Section DII CIF playoffs. Before a capacity crowd on the hometown floor,
visiting Mission Prep (San Luis Obispo) upset the Warriors in overtime 55-52.

Thurman will continue her basketball career at Northwest Nazarene University in Nampo, Idaho, next season. She leaves Tehachapi High School as the all-time
leading scorer in girls basketball history.

I was extremely blessed to have coached this group of young ladies, said head coach Jimi Perkins. I started coaching these girls
because they needed a coach. Ive learned that God put me in this position because I needed them.
