Bishop goes 1-0 in league

October 21, 2013

The Bishop Broncos enjoyed a much-needed football victory against their opponent, the Ravens, beneath the windless evening sky in Cal City.

Although the Bishop Lady Broncos and Kern Valley Lady Broncs are equal in name, the Broncos’ volleyball squad proved to be the superior team as they scored a sweeping victory on home court Thursday afternoon.

Bishop XC sweeps Cal City

October 18, 2013

Eagles top Cats

October 18, 2013

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.
“We used a balanced attacking game and scrappy defense to keep the upper hand,” said coach Mel Joseph. “We played with determination in games one and two.” 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.

Teamwork lands Bishop a big win

October 16, 2013

In a game of five rapid sets, Bishop’s Lady Broncos volleyball squad fought hard against Frazier Mountain to earn the victory in the tie-breaker.
Though it’s 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.
