Bishop Unified School District Superintendent Barry Simpson had planned on doing a PowerPoint presentation of pros and cons to help the Board of Trustees decide where Broncos athletes will go for CIF playoff games this coming school year.
âI decided against it,â Simpson said at Thursdayâs board meeting. âThere werenât a whole lot of pros.â
The Bishop Lady Broncos softball team fell, 3-13, to the Shadow Hills Knights Thursday afternoon in the first round of CIF Division 6 playoffs.
âUnfortunately the score does not reflect what a good game it was,â said coach Stacy Van Nest. âWe came ready to play but were out-hit and had some defensive errors. But we never gave up. The game was not out of reach until the bottom of the sixth. Iâm proud of every girl on this team for an outstanding season.â
The sixth annual Bomb-Fest Slow Pitch Softball Tournament played out last weekend at Millpond with the menâs teams battling it out on Saturday, followed by the coed teams on Sunday.
A lot of the names and faces were familiar, with Sweetwater, Reds and Mad Batters among the seven menâs teams competing for the tournament championship.
The champions of both the menâs and coed divisions, however, were teams from Northern California: Deaf Row, menâs champion, and Judoknome, coed champ.
Both teams, as well as one additional coed contender, were made up of hearing-impaired players.
