The Lady Warriors ended a stellar year on the hard court last week in a CIF Division III semifinal loss to Hanford West, 53-33.

Tehachapi (23-6) reached the Division III final four with wins over San Joaquin Memorial 59-56 and Shafter 43-33 in previous playoff contests.

Freshman point guard Dani Peacon led the team in scoring with 12 points and added four steals and three assists. Rheanna Cowee also had a strong game with nine points and 16 rebounds,
while Danielle Simpson had six points and four rebounds.

Mountain Basketball’s playoff run marked the first time a Lady Warrior basketball team won a playoff game since 2007. It was also the first time THS won two playoff games in a single season since 2005,
when the Lady Warriors defeated Hanford 56-47 and Cesar Chavez 64-50 to reach the CIF championship.
