April 24, 2013

Where was Wily Coyote when the Bishop Lady Broncos needed him?

What they could have used were a few sticks of dynamite or a piece of Acme heavy equipment to disrupt a very strong Rosamond team.

Tioga Pass cleared to eastern park entrance

April 22, 2013

A crew from Caltrans clears the road on Tioga Pass just in time to allow brave and hearty anglers access to high-country fishing spots during this weekend’s fishing opener. Caltrans has re-opened the pass (State Route 120 West/Tioga Pass Road) to the east Yosemite Park Entrance Gate. The highway will remain closed beyond the park. “Users can access S.R. 120 for recreational activities from the junction of U.S. 395 at Lee Vining up to the park entrance closure gate,” a press release from Caltrans states. This partial opening is dependent on favorable weather.

That tie will be broken this afternoon as Bishop hosts the Lady Roadrunners at City Park. First pitch: 3:15 p.m.
“We had great pitching,” said coach Stacy Van Nest. “We out hit the Broncs and played solid defense. I am so proud of our team for their great effort.”

Lone Pine’s Lady Golden Eagles leveled the Mojave Mustangs on the road Friday with a big 17-1 win.
“We came out a little flat in the first two innings,” said coach Liz Jones who chalked the flatness up to the team “just making the coach nervous.”
Lone Pine took off in the third, burying the Mustangs with hits.
The Eagles, 3-2, are third in Desert Mountain League, nipping at the heels of the Boron at 5-0 and Vasquez, 4-1. Lone Pine heads to Vasquez tomorrow.

Bishop Broncos home after rough losses on the road

The Bishop Broncos fell to the Kern Valley Broncs, 0-8, Friday afternoon.
Both teams are now 2-2, behind the undefeated Frazier Mountain Falcons and the Rosamond Roadrunners at 3-1. Bishop faces Rosamond at home this afternoon.
“We had three hours of batting practice Saturday,” said coach Tim Reid. “After a tough week, that helped get us back on track, helped us regain our confidence. We’ll be ready for Rosamond.”
“We’re in a slump,” he said. “We need to start hitting the ball and take the pressure off the pitcher.”
