The Lady Broncos soccer team members got an early taste of victory at a 6x6 tournament held in Irvine, June 30.
The 6x6 format is played on a small field, 50 by 40 feet, with five field players and a goal keeper. The game lasts 30 minutes with free substitutions similar to hockey.
â€śItâ€™s a fun, fast-paced game with lots of action and usually quite a few goals,â€ť said coach Cathy McKinley.
Each team played four games. The tournament winner is then determined by points allotted for wins and ties.
The 2012 Bishop Invitational Swim Meet, held at the City Park Pool June 22-24, hosted 220 swimmers competing in 226 events.

The Douglas Dolphins took the overall honors (1,613 points), followed by Mammoth Lakes (957) and Bishop Swim Team (754).
Individual swimmers were allowed to compete in 10 events and high point awards were given for each age group based on their total accumulated points.
