The Lone Pine Golden Eagles havenâ€™t lost their luster. With the 55-20 win over the Immanuel Christian Crusaders Friday, the Eagles are undefeated at 7-0 with nothing between them and Lone Pineâ€™s first Hi-Lo championship but the Lee Vining Tigers, Nov. 4 at home.
Coach Chris Riesen gives the credit to his players, mostly seniors who know the game and are giving 100 percent.
The Fourth Annual Ultimate Cowboy Trail Challenge enjoyed much improved weather this year but sunshine did not diminish the challenging nature of the course.
Horses, mules and donkeys competed in the event put on the weekend of Oct. 8-9 by Linda Laird of the Double L in Bishop and Kris Keeler of JKK Performance out of San Dimas.
Of the top 10 riders, six were locals.
Jay Joseph from Santa Barbara took the championship on his 7-year-old Belgium cross gelding Stout, with a near-perfect ride.
Joseph won $1,000, a hand-crafted photo album, bridle, trophy and the coveted blue ribbon.

The Lone Pine Golden Eagles volleyball squad got bitten by the Boron Bobcats at home Thursday, losing 1-3 (8-25, 25-23, 21-25, 19-25)
â€śBoronâ€™s strong serving and stingy defense kept us rattled throughout the match,â€ť said coach Mel Joseph. â€śWe lacked the inspiration and desire to push points when the opportunity was there. Everyone had moments of greatness, just not at the same time and Boron took at advantage.â€ť
Lone Pine served 95 percent as a team.
The Bishop Lady Broncos volleyball team scored a High Desert League win Thursday, taking down the Rosamond Roadrunners 3-1.

Tara Baiano: 3 kills
Canâ€™t seem to find the words to describe the scenery at Lake Sabrina. The yellows, oranges, reds, golds and greens, all so picturesque, and speaking of picturesque, there were plenty of photographers trying for that one perfect picture. In fact, we do believe there were more picture takers on the dam than fishermen. That might be due to the w-i-n-d that was with us all last weekend.
Those fishermen that did brave the w-i-n-d were rewarded by some great catching. Most good fishing is at the Inlets with nightcrawlers, PowerBait, jigs or WoollyBuggers bringing in the fish.

The Bishop Broncos started a tough pre-league football season with a huge bullâ€™s eyes on their jerseys. Who doesnâ€™t want to knock off the CIF Southern Section Division Champions?
The only problem: The Broncos of 2011 are young and relatively inexperienced. That showed in Bishopâ€™s 7-42 loss Saturday to the number one ranked Division 12 Sierra Canyon Trailblazers. The schedule doesnâ€™t get any easier. In the coming weeks, the Broncos face Chadwick, a team Bishop knocked out of the CIF playoffs 49-20, and Rim of the World in the Broncosâ€™ first home game, Sept. 23.
