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.
One hundred sure-footed, long-eared equines are hitched up and lined up along Aberdeen Station Road â across the highway from the Los Angeles Department of Water and Power Aqueduct Intake â in anticipation of a 240-mile journey to Southern California.
LADWP and City of L.A. officials were on hand for a plaque ceremony that memorializes the opening of the Intake and the L.A. Aqueduct in February, 1913.
âWe believe the freedom and exhilaration of outdoor challenges changes lives. No one should be left behind simply because of a disability.â Â
â Disabled Sports Eastern Sierra
The American Legion will be banding together with Carlâs Jr. to raise funds in support of Wounded Warrior Project athletes who will be attending the upcoming Disabled Sports Eastern Sierra winter event.
One hundred mules will step out in formation on Friday, Oct. 18 to start a 240-mile journey alongside the Los Angeles Aqueduct that will take them from the Owens Valley to Los Angeles in about 27 days to commemorate the 100-year anniversary of the completion of the Aqueduct.
The City of Bishop declared a local Arbor Day in order to become an official Tree City USA, a designation that will further the cityâs overall nationwide status and its City Park Arboretum Project.
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.
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.
