Cross Country hosts Highland and East
THS cross country participated in a tri-meet with Highland and East last Wednesday afternoon, with the THS varsity men defeating East and the THS junior varsity division defeating both schools.
With the league title already wrapped up heading into the final game of the year, the Braves put the icing on the cake last Friday with a convincing 26-0 victory over Garces.
The win marked the seventh time this season that Tehachapi (9-1; 5-0 SEYL) allowed only one touchdown or less in a game and the shutout was their third overall.
On a recent road trip I picked up the Seattle Times during a layover at Seattle-Tacoma airport (SEATAC), a story on the front page caught my attention; it talked about a proposal that recently went to voters that raises the minimum wage for many SEATAC workers to a whopping $15 an hour. The proposal was too close to call at the time, although it had an early lead with several absentee ballots still to count.
The Warriors went into the locker room at halftime down only 10-7, but key turnovers in the game shifted momentum away from Mountain Football in 24-14 loss to Garces last Friday in Bakersfield.
The game was marked as the SEYL championship, with both squads coming into the contest with undefeated league records.
For a team that stressed defense all season long, it was fitting that the Tomahawks' final game of the season ended with a 20-0 shutout over the Shafter Gladiators.
The Jayvee Tomahawks (8-2) defense was stifling, recording two interceptions and holding the Gladiators to only 12 net yards in a dominating championship performance.
Even though Mountain Volleyball had already wrapped up the SEYL title when Garces came into town last Thursday, the league finale was anything but anticlimactic.
It was a rousing and loud rivalry atmosphere in the THS gym and all that attended were witness to a convincing Mountain Volleyball three-set sweep over the Lady Rams.
Lady Warriors sweep Highland and North
The Lady Warriors are nearing perfection in regular season after dispatching Highland and North in straight sets this past week.
The fast and furious wing-t attack wasted little time building momentum, cruising to five first quarter touchdowns to lift the Warriors to an eventual 49-7 victory over Foothill.
In limited action, Skylar Valencia took six carries for 106 yards, scoring three touchdowns on runs of 33, 8 and 8 yards.Nathan Evans also added a 21-yard interception return for a touchdown and Micah FJeld caught a 16-yard pass from Chris Llamas to end the night for the Mountain Football starters after only 13 minutes into the game.
Q&A from the Dept. of Fish & Wildlife
Question: We own a pet store in Northern California and also help to rescue animals and then place them in suitable homes. A client recently asked us to help rescue a 12-year-old garter snake and then adopt it out back to a good home. My questions are, is it even legal for us to possess a garter snake within our shop? Next, if we are able to possess it in our shop, can we charge our standard adoption fees to a new owner for our services in order to help place this snake in a new home? (Anonymous)
