Friday night's finals of the California High School Rodeo Association offered up maybe a little too much suspense for area residents cheering on locals Kayla Inderbieten and Chase Bowen.
Both made it into the finals after the first two go's, Inderbieten in barrels, Bowen in bareback riding.
The prize at the end of Friday's finals was a trip to the National High School Rodeo Association's Finals held in Wyoming in July. Bowen is going, Inderbieten missed it by 0.135 seconds.
The Chuckawallees and Bad Company faced off Tuesday night in the C Coed Division of Bishopâs Adult Softball league. Bad Company came in undefeated with the Chuckawallees right behind them at 1-1.
Chuckawallee took a couple of innings to warm up, but when they did, Bad Company went reeling with a 3-8 deficit. Then it was Bad Companyâs turn to fight back, making the winning run in the bottom of the sixth for the 11-10 win.
Bad Company took out the top of Chuckawalleeâs batting order in short order in the top of the first, then put the offense to work.
Considering that the area just celebrated Mules Days, the fact that roughly 300 runners spent the previous weekend, (May 18), trotting from 20-62 miles up and down the Eastern Sierra, on foot, seems like cruel and unusual punishment.
In its 19th running, the Bishop High Sierra Ultramarathon is divided into four segments, each running simultaneously, a 100K, 50 miles, 50K and a 20-mile Fun Run.
Allison Inderbieten, a seventh grader at Home Street Middle School, is on her way to the National Junior High Rodeo Finals in Gallup, N.M. as part of the California team.
Inderieten will be competing in barrel racing and breakaway roping at the finals June 23-29.
The finals feature more than 1,000 contestants from 41 states andCanada and Australia vying for $75,000 in prize money and $100,000 in college scholarships. But the big prize is the title of NJHRF national champion.

The Bishop Broncos fell to the Malibu Sharks, the number two ranked baseball team in CIF Division 6.
Bishop made the drive down Thursday, knowing they were the underdog. The good news, though the players may not have thought so on the long drive back from the coast, was the score: 6-10. The Broncos did Bishop proud, staying in the game despite a 1-8 deficit going into the fifth inning.
Malibu retired its pitcher in the fifth, then had to sit through the final three innings wondering if the decision was wise as the Broncos methodically chipped away at the Sharksâ lead.
The Lone Pine Golden Eagles Track and Field team finished its season on a high note as the athletes reached the medal podium three times at the Desert Mountain League Finals, held at Antelope Valley High School the first week in May.
Competing against nine teams, Lone Pineâs Alec Garcia took first place in the 400-meter sprint, qualifying for the CIF championship prelims.
The Bishop Lady Broncos softball team fell, 3-13, to the Shadow Hills Knights Thursday afternoon in the first round of CIF Division 6 playoffs.
âUnfortunately the score does not reflect what a good game it was,â said coach Stacy Van Nest. âWe came ready to play but were out-hit and had some defensive errors. But we never gave up. The game was not out of reach until the bottom of the sixth. Iâm proud of every girl on this team for an outstanding season.â
The sixth annual Bomb-Fest Slow Pitch Softball Tournament played out last weekend at Millpond with the menâs teams battling it out on Saturday, followed by the coed teams on Sunday.
A lot of the names and faces were familiar, with Sweetwater, Reds and Mad Batters among the seven menâs teams competing for the tournament championship.
The champions of both the menâs and coed divisions, however, were teams from Northern California: Deaf Row, menâs champion, and Judoknome, coed champ.
Both teams, as well as one additional coed contender, were made up of hearing-impaired players.
