Broncos lose to Falcons

April 17, 2013

It was great weather for basketball at Frazier Mountain Tuesday as the Bishop Broncos nine got blown off the side of the hill with a 2-10 loss, the team’s first High Desert League loss since the 2009-10 season.
“It sounds worse than it really was,” said coach Tim Reid. “We didn’t play that badly, we just made some defensive mistakes. You can’t make mistakes against that good a team.
“Some positive things happened. We fought to the end and that’s a good thing to see.”

Lady Eagles level Huskies

December 21, 2012

The 2012-13 Mammoth Lady Huskies basketball team is young; with the experience gained during what is developing into a rough season, they could be a force to be reckoned with in coming years.
This is a polite way of leading into a recap of the Huskies’ cataclysmic loss to the Lone Pine Lady Golden Eagles Tuesday, Dec. 18.
The Eagles have had a deadly defense all season and the Huskies got a strong taste of that ferocity in Lone Pine. With the exception of senior point guard Desarae Coats, the offense has been tentative. But not Tuesday night.
