Seven players on Bishopâs Lady Broncos tennis team headed into the Central Valley for the CIF individual championships Friday, Nov. 1.
Of those seven, doubles partners Bronwyn Stephenson and Taylor Stoll advanced to the second round, a rarity for Bronco players.
âI have been attending individuals for quite a few years,â said coach Patty Cummings, âand rarely does a team from Bishop ever make it to the second round. Itâs quite an accomplishment for Taylor and Bronwyn and I am very proud of them.â
Thursdayâs final High Desert League football game wonât make the Bishop Broncosâ 2013 highlight reel.
For a team accustomed to not just winning but blowing the competition out of the water, this has been a rough year. You can talk about life lessons until youâre blue in the face and it doesnât make the situation any more palatable, maybe in a few years, but not Thursday night.
The competition in Lone Pine volleyballâs Desert Mountain League was intense this year with the final seeding for CIF playoffs coming down to a coin toss.
Unfortunately, the coin did not flip in the Lady Eaglesâ favor, nor did their final DML league game Wednesday evening.
The Eagles hosted the Mammoth Huskies who needed the win to end the season in a three-way tie for league champion with Desert and Desert Christian. Mammoth got the win, 3-1.

A slew of Mammoth Mountain bigwigs hit June Lake late Tuesday night, Nov. 5 to roll out an ambitious new plan for June Mountain Ski Area that they say will save the ailing ski area â and to set a new industry precedent.
âWe are going to offer âKids Under 12 Ski Free,ââ MMSA Chief Operating Officer Greg Dallas told approximately 120 people crowded into the community center in June Lake. âThatâs a huge deal. No one else is doing this. Most places there are restrictions, there are asterisks in the fine print.â
