Friday afternoon was not a bright spot for Lone Pine Golden Eaglesâ€™ fans.
The Boron Lady Bobcats leveled the Lady Eagles softball team 3-14. The baseball match-up wasnâ€™t much better with a 9-15 loss for Lone Pine.
The combination of strong Boron teams and errors from Lone Pine was fatal.
â€śOur offense was good,â€ť said baseball coach Chris Riesen, â€śwe just have to work on our pitching and defense. Weâ€™re a competitive team but not an overpowering team. We canâ€™t make mistakes. We had too many walks and too many errors.â€ť
Despite strong winds and tough terrain, the Bishop Broncos golf team came away from Desert Highâ€™s home course with a win.
Brendon Shibley medaled with a 79, followed by Raimundo Huarte in second with an 82.
Bishopâ€™s team score, 423, was 95 strokes below second-place Kern Valley and 101 strokes below host Desert.
â€śConditions were windy,â€ť said coach Shirley Ono, â€świth tough pin placements and sloping greens. Short or spinning approach shots onto the many elevated greens were unforgiving and punitive.
â€śThe Broncos played well and displayed smart shot-making given the conditions.â€ť
The Bishop JV softball team took on the Lee Vining varsity Lady Tigers last Thursday in a lop-sided 0-10 loss.
â€śWe had to adjust our defense and offense due to injuries and illnesses,â€ť said coach Patty Cummings. The timing couldnâ€™t have been worse as Lee Vining always fields strong teams.
â€śTailer Marks did a great job at shortstop as did Tiarney Andreas at catcher and Tamia Shoshone on the mound,â€ť Cummings said.
Shoshone struck out six, had two walks; the Broncos defense committed four errors.
