Despite a hard-fought match, the Bishop High Lady Broncos volleyball team fell in straight sets to the Desert Scorpions Tuesday.
The Broncosâ ball control, serving and aggression at the net would have defeated a lesser team, but the Scorpionsâ brick wall at the net was the deciding factor.
âWe played hard, we played strong,â said coach Sheri Sonke. âIâm proud of the effort, this was our best game as a team yet.â
Bishop got off to a strong start in Game 1. The teams were blow for blow until the Scorpions turned on their after-burners, pulling away to the 15-25 finish.
With the Tungsten Hills as a backdrop, the Broncos Cross Country squads dominated the Desert Scorpions, winning in both the boys and girls three-mile races Tuesday.
Also invited to participate, but not compete, were Mam-moth High; Mammoth Middle School and Home St. Middle School running two-mile courses.
âWeâre very pleased with the runnersâ steady improvement,â said coach Jeff Perry. âThis victory was needed to keep us in reach of the CIF preliminaries,â added coach Tracy Lawrence.
