The TCHS baseball team’s postseason run didn’t quite pan out, as Hemet posted a 2-0 win in the CIF-Southern Section Division 5 championship June 5 at UC Riverside.
As Aram Tolegian reported in the SGV Tribune: "Temple City head coach Rob Nelson said 'I'm so proud of what they accomplished. We weren’t supposed to be here. There’s teams sitting at home tonight who were supposed to be here. This is why you play the game."
TC (18-10) was a wild-card team at the outset of the playoffs after its third-place Rio Hondo League finish. But the Rams managed post-season upsets to reach the finals.
