Bishop Bronco Brendon Shibley and Lone Pineâ€™s Casey Sullivan moved on to round two of the CIF individual golf tournament, making the cut at Mission Lakes Golf Course Monday.
Sullivan, Shibley and Bishop golfers Joey Medora and Sean Mitton represented High Desert League on the par 71 Desert Hot Springs course.
The players were competing against a cut at 79 strokes. Sullivan finished with an impressive 2-over par at 73, Shibley with a 78 to qualify for the next round.
According to Lone Pine coach Terry Fenske, Sullivan made an eagle putt, putting him 1-under par.
As the dust settles on regular league play, the Bishop Lady Broncos JV softball team stands alone at the top of the High Desert League standings with a 9-1-0 record, 16-6-1 overall.
The single league loss was to Kern Valley, by 1 run.
The final win over Desert, 8-3 on May 10, marked the end of the JV teamâ€™s season.
â€śDesert played great defense,â€ť said coach Patty Cummings, â€śleaving us scoreless at the bottom of the first, so the girls knew they needed to be aggressive at the plate, and thatâ€™s what they did.â€ť
Last fall, the Hi-Lo League football champion Lone Pine Eagles were punted out of the playoffs by a huge, brutal Excelsior Education Center team.
It took a few months, but the Golden Eagles struck back with a 4-2 win over the Excelsior Eagles in the Wild Card bracket of the CIF baseball playoffs.
â€śWe were solid defensively,â€ť said coach Chris Riesen. â€śIt was one of our better games. We put everything together and Michael (Cappello) threw well.â€ť

â€śWe had a big 6-hit inning,â€ť said coach Stacy Van Nest, â€śthen the Knights couldnâ€™t stop our momentum.â€ť
