Lady Broncos go 7-3 in pre-league

March 26, 2012

The Bishop Lady Broncos logged an 11-3 win over Vasquez Saturday at the Lancaster Tournament and a 10-0 shutout of Louisville in an impromptu scrimmage.
The Broncos got to Lancaster two hours before their first scheduled game against Vasquez to find that their second opponent, Desert Christian, was a no show, leaving the Louisville Royals from Woodland Hills idle.
Bishop volunteered to play Louisville in a scrimmage format, then donated pitcher Megan Erwin when the Royals’ pitcher suffered arm problems during warm up. Erwin and Kellie Tiner rotated between teams for six innings of play.

Broncos split doubleheader

March 26, 2012

When is a split doubleheader a good thing? When it’s the Bishop Broncos baseball team up against the Burroughs Burros in Ridgecrest.
Bishop beat Burroughs Saturday 3-1, then lost the second game 0-1 in what is usually a humbling test for the Broncos in pre-league.
“This is the best we’ve played all season,” said coach Tim Reid.
Curran Simpson saved the win with a diving out at second base.
“Keith Tatum (Bronco’s catcher) had an awesome game one,” said Reid, “not only on his calls to Scott but he threw two outs on stolen base attempts.”
