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.
â€śWe played hard, we played strong,â€ť said coach Sheri Sonke. â€śIâ€™m proud of the effort, this was our best game as a team yet.â€ť
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.
â€śWeâ€™re very pleased with the runnersâ€™ steady improvement,â€ť said coach Jeff Perry. â€śThis victory was needed to keep us in reach of the CIF preliminaries,â€ť added coach Tracy Lawrence.
