Bishop JV and
Lone Pine fill in
some football blanks
The Bishop Junior Varsity football squad werenât scheduled to take the field this Friday; Frazier has no JV team. The Lone Pine Golden Eagles won by a forfeit to Lee Vining last weekend and were scheduled for a bye this week. So, the two teams will meet at 4 p.m. this Friday at John Schwab field as part of Bishopâs Homecoming extravaganza.
The Conway Ranch Fish-Out Derby
The Bishop Broncos enjoyed a much-needed football victory against their opponent, the Ravens, beneath the windless evening sky in Cal City.
The first half kick off put the Broncos deep in their own territory at the 9-yard line. The team advanced the ball a short distance up field before the Ravens took over on Bishopâs 28 off an errant snap on the punt.
The Big Pine Lady Warriors hosted Lee Vining Thursday and sent the Tigersâ volleyball squad back up the hill with a 3-0 sweep.
In game one Melissa Barlow executed a kill, putting Sienna Gutierrez at the service line. The score was 3-2 and Gutierrez went on a 6-point run.
Lee Vining couldnât close the gap after Gutierrezâs serve, only getting a couple of point breaks from Mackenzie Kendall and Marie Lightner. Big Pineâs Anah-Kee Mason and Gena Lewis had multi-point runs at the line. Mason ran up 5 service points and Lewis added 6. The final score in game one: 25-11

Although the Bishop Lady Broncos and Kern Valley Lady Broncs are equal in name, the Broncosâ volleyball squad proved to be the superior team as they scored a sweeping victory on home court Thursday afternoon.
The weather was perfect, Tungsten City Hills were impressive and the Bishop Broncos Cross Country teams couldnât have hoped for a better outcome as they held their first High Desert League home meet Wednesday afternoon. Both the boys and girls teams scored perfect 15s.
The Boron Bobcats headed to Lone Pine Thursday afternoon and left with their collective tails tucked between their legs. The Lady Golden Eagles volleyball team beat the Bobcats 3-1.
âWe used a balanced attacking game and scrappy defense to keep the upper hand,â said coach Mel Joseph. âWe played with determination in games one and two.â Lone Pine won the first two sets, 25-18 and 25-21.
The Eagles fell back on their heels in game three, losing to the Bobcats 19-25.
In a game of five rapid sets, Bishopâs Lady Broncos volleyball squad fought hard against Frazier Mountain to earn the victory in the tie-breaker.
Though itâs still early in High Desert League action, the win over the Frazier Falcons was a near-necessity in the Broncos run for the league championship.
Game one was a reflection of the entire match. Neither team enjoyed more than a 3-point advantage through to the 23-25 win for the Falcons. For every points run from the Broncos, the Falcons answered with heavy fortification at the net.
The Bishop Broncos football team can clear the slate and start from scratch tomorrow night at Cal City. Itâs the first High Desert League game of the season and Bishopâs 0-0. The teamâs 2013 pre-league season has been a rough one.
The Broncos faced off against the Desert Scorpions last Friday night on the road in what certainly qualifies as the hardest-fought game of the year.
