The Lady Warriors opened the CIF Division III playoffs as the No. 10 seed, traveling to No. 7 Nipomo for opening round action.
Facing a six-hour round trip for the match and against the Ocean League champions, the task proved to be too daunting for Mountain Volleyball in a 3-0 (25-14, 25-15, 25-15) defeat to Nipomo (17-8-1).
Tehachapi (16-8) was led in the match by Aubree Dees (eight kills, eight assists, six digs, two aces), Annie Loken (five kills, three blocks), Michelle Orellana (eight digs, two aces) and Sophie Schulstad (five assists).
The Lady Warriors closed the year with a second-place finish in the South Yosemite League.
