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.
The Lone Pine Lady Golden Eagles traveled to Mammoth to take on the Lady Huskies (ranked number 3 CIF Division V-AA) Tuesday afternoon and were defeated 9-25, 15-25, 17-25.
Unlike last Fridayâs team effort, the Lady Eagles were never able to find their rhythm and passed out of system. âWe had no offensive production and defensively did not play with intensity,â said coach Mel Joseph.
Shawni Patton: 100% serving, 13 assists, 5 digs
Amanda Barlese: 100% serving, 2 kills, 2 blocks, 10 digs
Maureen Cariou: 100% serving, 6 kills, 3 blocks, 7 digs

Bishop Saddle Club Horse Show and Awards Dinner
This Sunday, Oct. 20, is the Bishop Saddle Clubâs final horse show of the season, to be followed by the clubâs awards dinner.
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 Warriorsâ squad.
Big Pine didnât 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.
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.
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.
âWe put together a solid team effort,â said coach Mel Joseph. âWe found our rhythm early and took advantage of Vasquez miscues.â
Lone Pine used an aggressive attacking game that kept the Mustangs scrambling. âWe made our share of mistakes,â said Joseph, âbut the girls never gave in to them.â

âWe went into the Cal City Tournament with high expectations of being competitive,â Bishop Lady Broncosâ 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.
The Big Pine Lady Warriors volleyball squad headed over the mountain Tuesday and came home with a win over the Beatty Hornets.
âBoth teams played really well,â said Big Pine coach Shelly Snoderly. âThe Warriors just wanted it more.â
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.
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 teamâs passing kept the Trojans scrambling throughout the match.
âWe played a great overall match, team-wise,â said coach Mel Joseph. âAt times our hesitation and communication getting to balls allowed the opposition to stay in the match.â
