The Bishop Lady Broncos softball teams both came up with wins over California City Friday. The varsity won 1-0; the junior varsity 19-3.
âWe were short handed,â said varsity coach Stacy Van Nest, âtraveling with only 11 girls. The win took all 11 and they gave it everything they had.â
According to Van Nest, the lone run was deceptive. âWe had several hard hits into the wind,â she said, âso our run doesnât really show how well we were hitting.â
Megan Erwin pitched 7 innings, 10 strikeouts, 0 walks, 2 hits

âWe played terrific defense,â said coach Tim Reid. âChance Callahan and Schain Thomson were both outstanding.â
