Although the Bishop Lady Broncos and Kern Valley Lady Broncs are equal in name, the Broncosâ volleyball squad proved to be the superior team as they scored a sweeping victory on home court Thursday afternoon.
The weather was perfect, Tungsten City Hills were impressive and the Bishop Broncos Cross Country teams couldnât have hoped for a better outcome as they held their first High Desert League home meet Wednesday afternoon. Both the boys and girls teams scored perfect 15s.
The Boron Bobcats headed to Lone Pine Thursday afternoon and left with their collective tails tucked between their legs. The Lady Golden Eagles volleyball team beat the Bobcats 3-1.
âWe used a balanced attacking game and scrappy defense to keep the upper hand,â said coach Mel Joseph. âWe played with determination in games one and two.â Lone Pine won the first two sets, 25-18 and 25-21.
The Eagles fell back on their heels in game three, losing to the Bobcats 19-25.
In a game of five rapid sets, Bishopâs Lady Broncos volleyball squad fought hard against Frazier Mountain to earn the victory in the tie-breaker.
Though itâs still early in High Desert League action, the win over the Frazier Falcons was a near-necessity in the Broncos run for the league championship.
Game one was a reflection of the entire match. Neither team enjoyed more than a 3-point advantage through to the 23-25 win for the Falcons. For every points run from the Broncos, the Falcons answered with heavy fortification at the net.
The Bishop Broncos football team can clear the slate and start from scratch tomorrow night at Cal City. Itâs the first High Desert League game of the season and Bishopâs 0-0. The teamâs 2013 pre-league season has been a rough one.
The Broncos faced off against the Desert Scorpions last Friday night on the road in what certainly qualifies as the hardest-fought game of the year.
The Lone Pine Lady Golden Eagles traveled to Mammoth to take on the Lady Huskies (ranked number 3 CIF Division V-AA) Tuesday afternoon and were defeated 9-25, 15-25, 17-25.
Unlike last Fridayâs team effort, the Lady Eagles were never able to find their rhythm and passed out of system. âWe had no offensive production and defensively did not play with intensity,â said coach Mel Joseph.

Bishop Saddle Club Horse Show and Awards Dinner
This Sunday, Oct. 20, is the Bishop Saddle Clubâs final horse show of the season, to be followed by the clubâs awards dinner.
The Big Pine Warriors were coming off a tough loss to Lee Vining; the Eagles were coming off their own Homecoming loss to Trona.
Both teams are young, but the Eagles had the advantages of numbers over the tough, tenacious 9-man Warriorsâ squad.
Big Pine didnât deliver the win, but they put up some good numbers in the second half, ending the game with a spectacular TD pass from Kelby Chirrick to Jacob Bacoch in the end zone and following up with the 2-point conversion for a final score of 48-16.
The Big Pine Lady Warriors gave the Homecoming crowd a little bit of everything Saturday morning in their re-match with the Lee Vining Lady Tigers. But most important, the young volleyball team got the win.
The Warriors had to fight back from a 5-point deficit early in game one for the 25-19 win. Game two turned into a nail-biter with Big Pine ahead by 13 before the Tigers poured on a series of points runs before the Warriors put the win to bed at 25-20. Big Pine hit the wall in game three, losing 18-25 before matching the Tigers point for point in game four and pulling out a 25-22 win.
