Eagles fall to Bobcats

April 2, 2012

Friday afternoon was not a bright spot for Lone Pine Golden Eagles’ fans.
The Boron Lady Bobcats leveled the Lady Eagles softball team 3-14. The baseball match-up wasn’t much better with a 9-15 loss for Lone Pine.
The combination of strong Boron teams and errors from Lone Pine was fatal.
“Our offense was good,” said baseball coach Chris Riesen, “we just have to work on our pitching and defense. We’re a competitive team but not an overpowering team. We can’t make mistakes. We had too many walks and too many errors.”

April 2, 2012

Despite strong winds and tough terrain, the Bishop Broncos golf team came away from Desert High’s home course with a win.
Brendon Shibley medaled with a 79, followed by Raimundo Huarte in second with an 82.
Bishop’s team score, 423, was 95 strokes below second-place Kern Valley and 101 strokes below host Desert.
“Conditions were windy,” said coach Shirley Ono, “with tough pin placements and sloping greens. Short or spinning approach shots onto the many elevated greens were unforgiving and punitive.
“The Broncos played well and displayed smart shot-making given the conditions.”

Tigers top Broncos

April 2, 2012

The Bishop JV softball team took on the Lee Vining varsity Lady Tigers last Thursday in a lop-sided 0-10 loss.
“We had to adjust our defense and offense due to injuries and illnesses,” said coach Patty Cummings. The timing couldn’t have been worse as Lee Vining always fields strong teams.
“Tailer Marks did a great job at shortstop as did Tiarney Andreas at catcher and Tamia Shoshone on the mound,” Cummings said.
Shoshone struck out six, had two walks; the Broncos defense committed four errors.
