    As the sun set on a chilly afternoon at Tehachapi High's baseball field Tuesday, a downtrodden Warriors team got just what it needed.

    That would be their coach, Chris Olofson, walking onto the field with a cane to greet them, one week after he was hit in the head with a line-drive foul ball and a few minutes after Tehachapi's emotional postseason run ended with a 13-7 loss to Visalia-Golden West in the Central Section Division III semifinals.

    Even though THS came into last Thursday afternoon’s CIF playoff quarterfinal against Hoover-Fresno as an underdog, the mission was clear. Win for Coach Oly.

    Warriors beat Hoover to advance in CIF playoffs; Coach Oly improving

    Coach Oly.jpg
    Perhaps inspired by concern for their coach, the Tehachapi Warriors turned in an admirable win over Hoover High School in Fresno this afternoon, beating the Patriots 10-1 in the second round of CIF Division III playoffs.
     
    On Tuesday, the SEYL Champion Warriors beat Highland, 10-5, after witnessing their coach, Chris Olofson, struck in the head by a baseball at the bottom of the fourth inning.
     
    Next stop for the Warriors will be a game vs number 9 seeded Golden West High School next Tuesday in Tehachapi (Jacobsen Middle School field, 4:30 p.m.)
    The Warriors earned the No. 5 seed in the CIF Division III playoffs after winning the league championship.
     
    According to Nikki Quiroga, Olofson’s fiancé, the coach is continuing to recover and was waiting for news of the Warriors’ game today. Quiroga said the support for Olofson was overwhelming.
     
    That support was evident at this afternoon’s game where sportswriter Tom Shea said Hoover High School showed itself as a “class act” by displaying a banner signed by Patriots players reading: “Thinking of you Coach Oly.”
     
    Earlier Thursday Tehachapi Unified School District released a statement indicating the coach’s condition had been upgraded from critical to serious.  His recovery is "looking positive for a full recovery," according to the statement.
