The Bishop Broncos take on the Salesian Mustangs in round two of the CIF football playoffs this Friday on the road. The game starts at 6:30 p.m. and will be broadcast on KBOV.
So, the question of the hour: can the Broncos win? The answer is one of those frustratingly coach-like responses: the Salesian Mustangs can be beaten. Bishop has the talent, the coaching, every element necessary to come away with an upset over a school seeded just one spot higher in the CIF Northeast Division.
The Bishop girls and boys varsity Cross Country runners came away with improved times at the CIF Southern Section Cross Country Prelims, Saturday, Nov. 10 at Mt. San Antonio College in Walnut.
Nearly all the Bronco competitors shaved at least 30 seconds off of their individual times on the three-mile course since the Mt. SAC Invitational held three weeks ago.

The passage of Proposition 30 on Nov. 6 was met with a mixture of relief and trepidation by Owens Valley school administrators and district board members.
Residents are being invited to work with the Inyo National Forest as it prepares to implement a new plan.
