    Lady Braves snatch second place pool finish in Shafter Tournament

    The Lady Braves basketball team wrapped up a two-day JV Girls Winter Shootout in Shafter on Dec. 29-30, with a second place finish in its pool. After beginning the tournament with a 34-26 loss to Liberty, Tehachapi (3-5) dominated Mira Monte, 21-12. The Braves followed up with an impressive 36-14 win over Kennedy-Delano the next morning, but were eliminated from the tournament after a hard-fought 37-31 loss to Arvin. Tehachapi kept the game close throughout much of the first half, heading into the break tied with the Bears at 17. Top overall scorers for Tehachapi were Alicia Johnson (29 points), Shelby Hanzel (8 points) and Yasmin Triado with five points. The Braves also received solid defensive play and rebounding from Reatta Cummings, who had five steals against Mira Monte, and Summer Chapman.

    Warriors finish strong at Garces tournament; teamwork and solid defense are key

    For the most part, Tehachapi 's Jonny Saavedra and Isaiah Johnson were the story at this year's Garces Holiday Hoops Challenge -- proving that they are possibly the best backcourt tandem in Kern County.

    The dynamic duo fueled a pair of exciting overtime finishes, combining for 236 of Tehachapi's 322 points during the four-day annual tournament, but a new hero emerged in the Warriors' finale against Bakersfield Christian on Saturday night.

    Hunting Sea Ducks

    Question: I want to hunt sea ducks and target surf scoters this waterfowl season. Is this legal? If so, how does one know where it is legal to hunt from shore? Also, if hunting from a boat, I know the motor must not be utilized except to retrieve birds. What other guidelines are there for hunting from a boat? (Scott S.)

    There's a good chance that CSUB men's basketball was the cause of several cases of whiplash right before the New Year -- the result of thousands of Americans snapping their heads for a double-take at the final score that flashed on their ESPN, Fox Sports and other television tickers on Dec. 28.

    The Roadrunners defeated Cal. Yes, that Cal, those Bears in that weird city they call Berkeley in the Bay Area.

    Lady Warriors shine in Arvin Holiday Showcase; Kroeger has big outing

    Girls Arvin Holiday Hoops1.JPG

    The second tournament of the early season had ups and downs for the Lady Warriors basketball team, but either way, it helped them get their minds in the right place as they head towards their final few games of the preseason.

    For the second time in three games, Tehachapi (8-2) found itself in familiar territory, as they watched a third-quarter lead evaporate. But this time the Warriors rallied with nine unanswered points to grind out a 40-49 win over the Cesar Chavez Titans on Dec. 22, in their 5th Annual Arvin Holiday Showcase finale.
