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, âLook in the hole.â There it was, nestled in the cup like a little poached egg.
In the final volleyball game of the High Desert League Thursday at home, Bishopâs Lady Broncos faced off against Rosamond with the league co-championship, shared with Frazier Mountain, on the line.
Seven players on Bishopâs 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.
âI have been attending individuals for quite a few years,â said coach Patty Cummings, âand rarely does a team from Bishop ever make it to the second round. Itâs quite an accomplishment for Taylor and Bronwyn and I am very proud of them.â
Thursdayâs final High Desert League football game wonât make the Bishop Broncosâ 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 youâre blue in the face and it doesnât make the situation any more palatable, maybe in a few years, but not Thursday night.
The competition in Lone Pine volleyballâs 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 Eaglesâ 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.
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 Pineâs 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.
The Lone Pine Golden Eagles Volleyball beat the Vasquez Mustangs for the second time this season and did it the hard way on the road.
The Mustangs were ranked ninth in their CIF division, but fell 3-0 to the Eagles in Lone Pine earlier this month, setting up a real battle in Acton Thursday afternoon. Time for a little Vasquez payback.
âWe knew we would have a fight on our hands after our three-game sweep,â said coach Mel Joseph.
