Lone Pine Golden Eagles ready for a strong 2013-14 season

November 20, 2013

Scott Kemp is a happy man.
The Lone Pine basketball coach was probably described as “happy” at this time last year. He had a troupe of freshmen, all more than 6 feet tall, a couple of juniors with speed and ability and the veteran senior Michael Cappello who went on to claim a Desert Mountain League MVP spot. The Golden Eagles went deep into CIF playoffs, finally falling in the quarterfinals to the eventual division champion, Rio Hondo Hares.

Lady Broncos fall to Cougars in tie-breaker

November 13, 2013

The Bishop Lady Broncos ran head long into a pride of tenacious, skilled volleyball Cougars from McFarland High Tuesday night.
The game was the first round of the CIF Central Section volleyball playoffs; Bishop lost 3-2.
“It was a great match. We were just out-played,” was coach Linda Frigerio’s simple explanation.
“They were a good team,” she said. “We were well-matched but I think we had better skills. They (the Cougars) have grit and tenacity and an unconventional style of play.”

Bishop’s legendary golfer hits another hole-in-one

November 13, 2013

Late last month, Augie Hess was at his second home, the Bishop Country Club golf course, hole 8 to be exact. He teed off and watched his golf ball veer to the left, then arc toward the flag. He and his buddies went to the green to finish out the hole. Hess assumed his ball had flown over the green; nobody could find it until someone suggested, “Look in the hole.” There it was, nestled in the cup like a little poached egg.

Lady Broncos compete at CIF Bakersfield

November 8, 2013

Seven players on Bishop’s 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.
“I have been attending individuals for quite a few years,” said coach Patty Cummings, “and rarely does a team from Bishop ever make it to the second round. It’s quite an accomplishment for Taylor and Bronwyn and I am very proud of them.”

Tough loss for Bishop

November 8, 2013

Thursday’s final High Desert League football game won’t make the Bishop Broncos’ 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 you’re blue in the face and it doesn’t make the situation any more palatable, maybe in a few years, but not Thursday night.

Lady Eagles’ season ends

November 8, 2013

The competition in Lone Pine volleyball’s 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 Eagles’ 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.

Warriors fall to Crusaders

October 30, 2013

The Big Pine Lady Warriors volleyball six held their own through the first two sets of play against the Immanuel Christian Crusaders Tuesday afternoon on home court. While the Warriors got some momentum going through the final two sets, they fell 1-3.
Big Pine’s final game will be this Saturday at 11 a.m. at home against the tough Trona Tornadoes.
The good news for Big Pine: the team is very young; everyone should be back in 2014 and this year has set a strong foundation for good things to come.
