Mountain Baseball finished the league season as Southeast Yosemite League champions, becoming the first men's team in THS history to win an outright Yosemite League title.
It was a season of highs and lows for Tehachapi (15-12; 9-1 SEYL), with the lows coming with the temporary loss of their coach, Chris Olofson, to a head injury in the playoffs and a 17-5 loss to North in the first half of the regular season. But there were plenty of highs, with the Warriors winning a title with a pair of wins over league rival Garces 5-1 and 2-1 and coming back to defeat North, 29-5 at home.
But the highest of the highs was reuniting with their coach at the conclusion of the playoff semifinals, with Olofson congratulating his players on the great season that was on the THS baseball diamond.
At the end of the year, Tehachapi was rewarded with individual accolades, with David Carter, Reid Feeley, Tyler Huebner, Davin Domingo and Justin Amparan making first team All-SEYL.
Earning second team all-league was Nathan Hedberg and Michael Cole. Honorable mention went to Eric Johnson and Nash Franko.

Cole, a senior catcher, had a .383 batting average with 21 runs scored and led the team in putouts with 104 and stolen bases with 13. Johnson, a senior, had a .290 batting average with four doubles.
