Warriors 2nd in South Sierra League Play
Cagers Win School Record 14 Games

"Coach Joe Kelly's varsity (basketball) squad this year was the greatest team in the history of Tehachapi High School
and was rated by some as the third best team in Kern County.

The well drilled varsity Warrior cage team was composed of four seniors: Welsh, Partin, Hicks, and Castro.
These boys played brilliant ball throughout the season.

More games were played this year by the varsity team than ever before. The team participated in two tournaments,
dropping the one held (in) by Lancaster by two points in the final game; and were eliminated by a strong Santa Paula team in the semi-finals
by one point in the Santa Paula Tournament.

In the South Sierra League, Maricopa, the best team in Kern County, was the only team to defeat the mighty Warriors (in league play).

Jesus Castro, the Warrior center, made the first team All-Sierra League and second team All-Valley. Harold Hicks, Arthur Madding,
and Frank Partin made the All-Sierra League second team."
