That tie will be broken this afternoon as Bishop hosts the Lady Roadrunners at City Park. First pitch: 3:15 p.m.
“We had great pitching,” said coach Stacy Van Nest. “We out hit the Broncs and played solid defense. I am so proud of our team for their great effort.”

April 17, 2013

The Lone Pine Lady Golden Eagles have been on a rampage, demolishing the Silver Valley Trojans 18-7 last Friday and sending the Mammoth Lady Huskies yelping back up the mountain Tuesday with a 23-8 win.
The Silver Valley win came after Lone Pine’s two-week spring break but there no signs of rust on the Eagles.
“We came out pretty strong,” said coach Liz Jones, “with 6 clean infield outs and only 2 errors.”
Amanda Barlese, with 4 hits on 5 at-bats, and Lacie Jones, at 3 for 4, led the hitting streak. “We racked up a total of 14 hits,” said Jones.

Lone Pine on a roll in DML action

April 17, 2013

The Lone Pine Golden Eagles nine have turned the corner, logging back-to-back wins over Silver Valley (8-1) last week and over the Mammoth Huskies (16-6) Tuesday.
The corner turned was the nasty error corner. The Eagles have solid pitching and strong offense, but until the game with the Silver Valley Trojans, have been plagued by defensive errors.
“We had no errors against Silver Valley,” said coach Mike Button.
The win avenges the Eagles’ season-opening loss, 10-13, to the Trojans last month, a defeat that was rife with errors.

It was great weather for basketball at Frazier Mountain Tuesday as the Bishop Broncos nine got blown off the side of the hill with a 2-10 loss, the team’s first High Desert League loss since the 2009-10 season.
“It sounds worse than it really was,” said coach Tim Reid. “We didn’t play that badly, we just made some defensive mistakes. You can’t make mistakes against that good a team.
“Some positive things happened. We fought to the end and that’s a good thing to see.”
