The Lady Warriors quietly reached a mini milestone last week by reaching the 20-win plateau, doing it in convincing fashion with a 25-11, 25-17, 25-11 victory over Frazier Mountain.

Tehachapi (20-3) dominated the front court behind their towering trio of Destiny Julye, Kim Smith and Elanya Cramer, who all combined for 29 kills in the three-game sweep.

Smith also led the team in blocks with four on the night, while Maddie Orellana led the team in digs with three recorded.

Wallace had a strong service game against the Falcons with four aces and a team leading 27 assists. Wallace and Brooklynn Cheney also had three blocks apiece.

Earlier this month in the Madera Classic Tournament, the Lady Warriors had match wins over Reedley (25-18, 25-19), Immanuel (25-12, 25-15) and Sanger (25-15, 25-15) in the first day of action. In the single-elimination round, Tehachapi rolled to a pair of wins over Madera South (25-4, 25-12) and Mt. Whitney (25-22, 25-19) before falling to Bakersfield High in the tourney quarterfinals, 25-20, 25-19.

In the six games played in the tournament, Julye led the team with 44 combined kills and was named to the all-tournament team. Cramer also had a strong six-game run with 31 kills while Wallace had 115 combined assists.

For her standout efforts so far on the year, Wallace was recently named as the California AVCA/Maxpreps Volleyball player of the week, earning the honor a week after fellow teammate Julye was named California's top player. Wallace received the nod between the dates of Aug. 26 through Sept. 1 by recording 140 assists, 12 blocks, seven aces and nine digs over a 14 game span.

Tehachapi will not have any volleyball matches this week, but will be in action again with a pair of home contests against East next Tuesday and Highland next Thursday. First serve in each match will be at 6:30 p.m.
