In the final volleyball game of the High Desert League Thursday at home, Bishopâs Lady Broncos faced off against Rosamond with the league co-championship, shared with Frazier Mountain, on the line.
Seven players on Bishopâs Lady Broncos tennis team headed into the Central Valley for the CIF individual championships Friday, Nov. 1.
Of those seven, doubles partners Bronwyn Stephenson and Taylor Stoll advanced to the second round, a rarity for Bronco players.
âI have been attending individuals for quite a few years,â said coach Patty Cummings, âand rarely does a team from Bishop ever make it to the second round. Itâs quite an accomplishment for Taylor and Bronwyn and I am very proud of them.â
Thursdayâs final High Desert League football game wonât make the Bishop Broncosâ 2013 highlight reel.
For a team accustomed to not just winning but blowing the competition out of the water, this has been a rough year. You can talk about life lessons until youâre blue in the face and it doesnât make the situation any more palatable, maybe in a few years, but not Thursday night.
The competition in Lone Pine volleyballâs Desert Mountain League was intense this year with the final seeding for CIF playoffs coming down to a coin toss.
Unfortunately, the coin did not flip in the Lady Eaglesâ favor, nor did their final DML league game Wednesday evening.
The Eagles hosted the Mammoth Huskies who needed the win to end the season in a three-way tie for league champion with Desert and Desert Christian. Mammoth got the win, 3-1.
