TCUSD family, we have some exciting news to announce!
We are thrilled to share the first official mock-ups of the new state-of-the-art sports and activities complex at Temple City High School. This complex will take our sports scene, band performances and district events to new heights.
This magnificent facility will be a game-changer for our athletes, providing them with modern amenities and endless opportunities to pursue their sporting passions. This sports complex will feature cutting-edge facilities, including a new turf field for our Football and Soccer Athletes, new tennis courts, a renovated baseball field, a new track, shot put corner, long jump pit and training areas. In addition there will be elements to acknowledge our alumni and athletes, time capsule spaces, new locker rooms, bathrooms, and new spectator seating spaces. There will also be an event center hub with concessions, a press box and state-of-the-art scoreboard.
We are very excited for the amazing opportunities this new complex will bring to our entire Temple City Unified community. Construction is set to begin in the summer of 2024, with a majority completion date of May 2025, in order to host graduation.
Let's embrace this exciting new chapter as we create an even better place for our students to play and thrive.

It is said that absence makes the heart grow fonder.
So it is for Temple City High volleyball player Taylor Yu, who had to sit out her entire junior year because of an injury. However, the setback only made her hungrier and she has returned to the court determined to make up for lost time.
Although her natural position is setter, Yu is thriving at outside hitter for the Rams, who without their star finished in the Rio Hondo League cellar and failed to make the playoffs last fall.
In Temple City’s first four matches this season — all wins — Yu recorded 123 kills, nine aces, four blocks and 45 digs. Her versatility is appreciated on a squad that features two other senior setters in Elizabeth Hung and Jocelyn Hou.
