The first Warrior varsity basketball team of 1930-31. Coached by Gus Offerman, the starters include, left to right,
Bill Downs, Bob McDaniel, Team Captain and center Woodrow "Red" Farrar, Jose Narez, and Joe Errea.

The Tehachapi High School basketball program fielded its first team during the 1930-31 school year under head coach Gus Offerman. The red-and-white clad Warriors were known as a "B" team in their first season.

The Warrior team finished the season with a 3-3 overall record against opposing high school teams. The Warriors played a home-and-away series with the Lone Pine A's, Shafter B's, and the Antelope Valley B's.

The Warriors also played a number of exhibition games against the local "adult town team" the Tehachapi Athletic Club and also played the Associated Oil team from Bakersfield, a group of ex-collegiate basketball players.

The first Warrior basketball team of 1930-31 was led by the starting five of center Woodrow Farrar, forwards Jose Narez and Florencio "Zip" Castillo, and guards Robert McDaniels and Joe Errea. Other team players included Martin Errecart, Bill Downs, and Paul Kruger.

The first lightweight team, known as the "C's", lost all six of their games against high school teams.

While not a league member this season, the final "A" standings in the Kern County league were Bakersfield High (9-1); Taft (7-3); Maricopa (7-3); McFarland (3-7); Shafter (3-7); and Wasco (1-9).

Next season the Warrior basketball program would join the new South Sierra League with three classifications of teams --- the A's, B's, and C's.
