Lone Pine Eagles score the win

October 14, 2013

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 Warriors’ squad.
Big Pine didn’t 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.

Lady Warriors tame the Tigers

October 14, 2013

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.

Eagles sweep Vasquez

October 14, 2013

The Lone Pine Lady Golden Eagles volleyball team kept Friday night exciting on home court. Faced with the CIF number nine Vasquez Mustangs, the Eagles swept in three close games.
“We put together a solid team effort,” said coach Mel Joseph. “We found our rhythm early and took advantage of Vasquez miscues.”
Lone Pine used an aggressive attacking game that kept the Mustangs scrambling. “We made our share of mistakes,” said Joseph, “but the girls never gave in to them.”

Bishop brings home the gold

September 26, 2013

“We went into the Cal City Tournament with high expectations of being competitive,” Bishop Lady Broncos’ varsity volleyball coach Linda Frigerio said.
Not only was this expectation met, but also exceeded, when the Broncos went undefeated both for the Friday pool games and the tournament itself on Saturday.

Lady Warriors score a win

September 26, 2013

The Big Pine Lady Warriors volleyball squad headed over the mountain Tuesday and came home with a win over the Beatty Hornets.
“Both teams played really well,” said Big Pine coach Shelly Snoderly. “The Warriors just wanted it more.”
Gena Lewis started the Warriors out with a 4-point lead and 1 ace in game one. The lead went to 8-5 with Sienna Gutierrez at the service line.
The Hornets tried to hang in, according to Snoderly, but Erin Lind and Anna Huston were serving aces. The Warriors were ahead 17-10 when Gutierrez laid down 4 more points for Big Pine.

Eagles v Trojans goes to tie-breaker

September 25, 2013

Tuesday night in Lone Pine was a total scream-fest. The Lone Pine Lady Golden Eagles took on the Silver Valley Trojans in a marathon volleyball match that went down to the fifth and final tie-breaking game.
The Eagles lost, by a hair, in a match that should bode well for this season. Lone Pine hit 90 of its 94 serves with 14 aces; the team’s passing kept the Trojans scrambling throughout the match.
“We played a great overall match, team-wise,” said coach Mel Joseph. “At times our hesitation and communication getting to balls allowed the opposition to stay in the match.”

Eagles fight Muckers to the bitter end

September 9, 2013

The Lone Pine Eagles and head football coach John Kane learned a lot about the team in Tonopah, Nev. last Friday.
They learned they could play hard for nearly four hours.
They figured out the younger players could step up when two of the seniors were sidelined with injuries.
They now know they’ve got an offensive line to be reckoned with.
OK, the Eagles fell to the Tonopah Muckers, 65-45, in an epic game that was prolonged in the final minutes by penalty calls by meticulous referees. But those bright spots Kane saw in the team’s season opening loss were amplified in game two.

Derby does it again

September 6, 2013

Last Sunday night, the Tri-County Fairgrounds main arena was not the place to be if you were a telephone pole. Drivers at this year’s Destruction Derby, the climax of the 2013 Fair, showed no respect for the barriers that defined the crash zone. The poles were sent flying, powered over, used as a wedge for a spectacular near roll-over, served as a fulcrum to trap cars and generally abused. During the Powder Puff heat, Trica Weatherford blasted sideways over the poles, circled the track to re-enter at the west end and went on to win the heat.
