Warriors Win Sierra League Championship
Moore Earns All-League and All-Valley Honors

The Warriors won the South Sierra League in 1950-51 but once again fell one game short of winning the valley title. It was the fourth time
in the past six years the Warriors had lost in the valley championship game.

In an early season warm-up on December 8, the Warriors played host to the annual Sierra League Carnival where all six league teams participate
in a round-robin tournament featuring games that are one quarter in length. The Warriors won the carnival by winning all five of their games
and also claimed both the Offensive Trophy and the Defensive Trophy awards. Robert Moore led the Warriors by scoring 20 points in the carnival.

In claiming the South Sierra League championship, the Warriors finished with an impressive 10-1 league record.
However, the Warriors finished the regular season at 9-1 along with Arvin High School, forcing a dramatic championship game in Tehachapi.
With 20 seconds left on the clock, sophomore guard David Elizondo sank a free throw to give the Warriors a hard fought 40-39 win over Arvin.
Guards Carlos Martinez and Elizondo led the Warriors in scoring with 12 and 10 points, respectively.

In the first round of the playoffs, the Warriors met Strathmore on a nuetral court at Exeter High School.
The Warriors defeated Strathmore, 56-48, behind the 15 point effort of center Rob Moore.
Martinez and Elizondo also scored 14 points apiece.

In the valley title game at Tranquility, the Warriors lost a high scoring affair, 66-53. Moore had 15 points while Don Peters contributed 13 points.

For the season, center Robert Moore led the team in scoring and rebounds. Moore scored 329 points in 20 games to pace
the Warriors with a 16.5 average per game.

The Warriors had three players selected to the All-Sierra League 1st team including Elizondo, forward Don Peters, and Moore.
Moore was also selected to the All-San Joaquin Valley 2nd team.
