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.
â€śI decided against it,â€ť Simpson said at Thursdayâ€™s board meeting. â€śThere werenâ€™t a whole lot of pros.â€ť
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.
â€śUnfortunately the score does not reflect what a good game it was,â€ť said coach Stacy Van Nest. â€śWe 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. Iâ€™m proud of every girl on this team for an outstanding season.â€ť
The sixth annual Bomb-Fest Slow Pitch Softball Tournament played out last weekend at Millpond with the menâ€™s 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 menâ€™s teams competing for the tournament championship.
The champions of both the menâ€™s and coed divisions, however, were teams from Northern California: Deaf Row, menâ€™s champion, and Judoknome, coed champ.
Both teams, as well as one additional coed contender, were made up of hearing-impaired players.
