Point Guard Jonny Saavedra (No. 11) helped the Warriors to a convincing 60-38 win over Burroughs last Tuesday at home. Saavedra had 13 points in the victory.

Isaiah Johnson (No. 5) was the leading scorer on the evening against the Burros, registering 29 points and six three pointers.

After suffering a defeat against Paraclete in their first game of the season, it looks like the Warriors might get an opportunity to avenge the loss.

Tehachapi (4-1) opened up the week with a convincing 60-38 victory over Burroughs at home, and then steamrolled to a trio of victories in the Roadrunner Classic in Rosamond to set up a rematch with Paraclete in the tourney final.

The Warriors dominated Burroughs on Tuesday, with Mountain Basketball riding the hot hand of junior Isaiah Johnson in the big win.

Johnson led the team with 29 points and six three pointers, including five in a row between the first and second quarters.

Jonny Saavedra also contributed with 13 points, followed by Caeleb Roney, Nathan Hedberg and Chris Llamas with four points each.

Micah Fjeld, playing in his first game since the football season ended, also chipped in with two points and was among the team leaders in rebounds.

In the Roadrunner Classic, THS steamrolled to wins over Lancaster Baptist (77-60), Burroughs (58-41) and Desert (62-40) on Wednesday, Thursday and Friday, respectively.

However, the win over Desert hit a sour note when talented wing/post player Nick Madden suffered a knee injury with five minutes remaining in the game and had to be taken away by ambulance.

The severity of Madden's injury and his status for the rest of the season will be updated in a future edition of the Tehachapi News.

Due to the closure of Highway 58, the Saturday tourney championship with Paraclete will be postponed to a later date.

The season will continue for THS this week in the Kern Schools Federal Credit Union Tourney in Bakersfield, with a first round game against West on Wednesday at 6:30 p.m.
