May 16, 2012

As the dust settles on regular league play, the Bishop Lady Broncos JV softball team stands alone at the top of the High Desert League standings with a 9-1-0 record, 16-6-1 overall.

The final win over Desert, 8-3 on May 10, marked the end of the JV team’s season.
“Desert played great defense,” said coach Patty Cummings, “leaving us scoreless at the bottom of the first, so the girls knew they needed to be aggressive at the plate, and that’s what they did.”

Revenge is sweet for Lone Pine Eagles

May 16, 2012

Last fall, the Hi-Lo League football champion Lone Pine Eagles were punted out of the playoffs by a huge, brutal Excelsior Education Center team.
It took a few months, but the Golden Eagles struck back with a 4-2 win over the Excelsior Eagles in the Wild Card bracket of the CIF baseball playoffs.
“We were solid defensively,” said coach Chris Riesen. “It was one of our better games. We put everything together and Michael (Cappello) threw well.”
Lone Pine travels to Pasadena today for a match-up with the Poly Pasadena Panthers, the 2011 Division 6 champions.

Eagles fall to Bobcats

April 2, 2012

Friday afternoon was not a bright spot for Lone Pine Golden Eagles’ fans.
The Boron Lady Bobcats leveled the Lady Eagles softball team 3-14. The baseball match-up wasn’t much better with a 9-15 loss for Lone Pine.
The combination of strong Boron teams and errors from Lone Pine was fatal.
“Our offense was good,” said baseball coach Chris Riesen, “we just have to work on our pitching and defense. We’re a competitive team but not an overpowering team. We can’t make mistakes. We had too many walks and too many errors.”
