Golden Eagles start season with a bang

November 21, 2012

If you’re Lone Pine High and coming into the basketball season off an OK previous year, and you’re facing Kern Valley Broncs – a bigger school, more competitive league, better record – realistically, you just hope for a decent showing.
The Golden Eagles did that Tuesday night, and then some.
The boys team came within 4 points of a win, at 59-63. Charging back from a weak third quarter, Eagles starters Michael Cappello and Brad Greene fouled out with four minutes on the game clock. Lone Pine held on but had lost its edge under the net.

Lady Eagles lose, 23-37
