in CIF All-Star Game
Christian Hernandez, representing the Bishop soccer team in the All-Star CIF senior game, scored the only goal for the Div. 6/7 squad as they took on the Div. 5 All Stars.
Hernandezâ€™s finish was a beautifully placed header from the penalty spot over the keeper late in the first half. The Div. 5 team ended up winning 3-1 but Hernandez played well in his last game as a high school student.
Big Pine Warrior Marissa Lemus and Lone Pine Golden Eagle Nicole Tweedy were named All-CIF in girls basketball in their respective divisions.

The California Nevada Interscholastic Ski and Snowboard Federation brought together 32 teams to the Lake Tahoe ski area, March 7-11.

Four Broncos snowboarders competed in the menâ€™s championship slalom and giant slalom races.
Soccer has been described in terms of elegance and beauty, a chess game in constant motion. Soccer is primarily a playersâ€™ game rather than a coachesâ€™ game. It requires an almost intuitive sense of team â€“ no huddles, no plays called in by a coach, Itâ€™s all up to the players.
Maybe it was that characteristic of the game that helped foster this yearâ€™s junior varsity girls soccer teamâ€™s spirit. The JV Lady Broncos, all 28 of them, attracted the attention of opposing teams, coaches and tournament directors during the season for their enthusiasm and spirit.
The Lone Pine Golden Eagles ended last weekendâ€™s baseball tournament at Yerington, Nev. with a split decision: two wins on Friday and two losses to Wittle High, the 2010 Nevada state champions on Saturday.

On the hitting side, Michael Palsrok went 2 for 2 with 3 runs; Michael Cappello was 2 for 2 with a triple, 3 runs and 3 RBI. Umberto Romero was also perfect at the plate with 3 for 3.
The conditions were cold and windy for Wednesdayâ€™s league golf match.
Despite the conditions, Lone Pineâ€™s Casey Sullivan came in with the low score, a 73 on the par 71 Bishop Country Club course.
