The Bishop Broncos football team and the crowd were up for the first home game of the season Friday night â the traditional match-up with the Mammoth Huskies.
One has to choose oneâs words tactfully. There are strong friendships and a lot of history between the two schools. As Bronco coach Bill Egan said, âIâm great friends with the Mammoth coaches; I root for them every week, except for this one game.â
But, sorry guys, the Broncos wiped up the field with the Huskies. Bishop shut out Mammoth, 50-0.
The Bishop Lady Broncos headed to Mammoth for the annual volleyball tournament last Friday and came home with the tournament championship.
âIâm happy for the program,â said coach Linda Frigerio, âhappy for the team. Itâs nice to see us getting better and better.â Over the past three years, the Broncos have progressed from third place at the tourney, to second with last yearâs team and now theyâve claimed the title. The final matches were played back to back against the Yosemite High School Badgers.
