With the water comes the fun, as is the case in Southern Inyo County with the return of water to the Lower Owens River. The once lush and green Owens Valley floor south of Big Pine, that became a desert after the water was taken by the City of Los Angeles, is turning back into a riparian area full of life and adventure.
The Inyo County and the Los Angeles Department of Water and Power want to know exactly what kind of fun people want to have there. The two are developing a recreation plan for the Lower Owens River Project and are asking the public for input.
The Bishop Lady Broncos softball teams both came up with wins over California City Friday. The varsity won 1-0; the junior varsity 19-3.
â€śWe were short handed,â€ť said varsity coach Stacy Van Nest, â€śtraveling with only 11 girls. The win took all 11 and they gave it everything they had.â€ť
According to Van Nest, the lone run was deceptive. â€śWe had several hard hits into the wind,â€ť she said, â€śso our run doesnâ€™t really show how well we were hitting.â€ť
Megan Erwin pitched 7 innings, 10 strikeouts, 0 walks, 2 hits
Katelyne Lent: 1 for 3
Megan Erwin: 1 for 3
re a bit of a surprise to the Bishop Broncos in early April when the two met at Bishop High. The Ravens took an early lead before the Broncos got on track and came from behind in the fifth inning to win the first High Desert League game 9-4.
There was no surprise in Fridayâ€™s rematch in Cal City. The Broncos came home with a 16-1 win and are still on top of the league standings.
â€śWe played terrific defense,â€ť said coach Tim Reid. â€śChance Callahan and Schain Thomson were both outstanding.â€ť
