The Big Pine Warriors topped their season with a win over the Tigers and the Hi-Lo League championship Saturday afternoon at Lee Vining.
With the score 10-23 in favor of the Tigers at the half, this was not your typical Big Pine get-out-in-front-early rout. The Warriors waited until the second half to rack up the points, for a final score of 49-37.
âWhat else could we ask for,â said coach Mark Tillemans, âto win the title on the last game of the season.â
The Rosamond Road-runners didnât live up to their mascotâs reputation Friday night at Schwab Field. The Bishop Broncos, in the role of Wile E. Coyote, dropped crate-loads of dynamite on their little heads. There was no triumphant âbeep beepâ to be heard, all night.
The Broncos won 44-0, stayed unbeaten in league play and added one more game to the win column.
The Bishop girls cross country team took second place at High Desert League finals at California City, advancing to CIF Prelim-inaries at Mt. SAC, Nov. 13.
The boys team finished fourth, just six points behind Kern.
âTo have the girls advance to CIF Prelims is a well-deserved honor,â said coach Jeff Perry.
âOur boys gained a sizeable victory over Desert,â said Perry, âand ran very respectable times, but our competition was simply faster this year.
The Desert Mountain League finale between Lone Pine and Mammoth lived up to its billing on Thursday. The Lady Eagles took five games to maintain a perfect season record.
Lone Pine ends the regular season 14-0 in league and 23-3 overall.
It was standing-room-only at the Lone Pine gym. The bleachers erupted in âGo Eagles,â âGo Huskiesâ chants that could have been heard on top of Mt. Whitney.
With a 3-0 sweep of the Huskies in mid-October, the Eagles were surprised by a 9-5 Mammoth team intent on being their season spoiler.
