BombFest tourney rocks Millpond

May 17, 2013

The sixth annual Bomb-Fest Slow Pitch Softball Tournament played out last weekend at Millpond with the men’s teams battling it out on Saturday, followed by the coed teams on Sunday.
A lot of the names and faces were familiar, with Sweetwater, Reds and Mad Batters among the seven men’s teams competing for the tournament championship.
The champions of both the men’s and coed divisions, however, were teams from Northern California: Deaf Row, men’s champion, and Judoknome, coed champ.
Both teams, as well as one additional coed contender, were made up of hearing-impaired players.

Broncos’ bats batter the bugs

April 29, 2013

That the Bishop Broncos baseball team beat the Desert Scorpions Friday afternoon at Edwards Air Force Base is not much of a surprise. That they beat them 20-1 is significant. The resurrection of the Broncos’ bats at home against Rosamond last Tuesday was no fluke. The Bishop bats are back.
And, they’ll get another good workout at California City this afternoon before hosting the two High Desert League teams that handed Bishop back-to-back road losses two weeks ago.

The Bishop Broncos JV baseball and Lady Broncos softball squads demolished the Desert Scorpions Friday with 11-7 and 2-0 wins, respectively.
“We’re on the right track for another perfect High Desert League record,” said baseball coach Chris Walston. “We’ve got a week until we play Frazier at home Friday which will allow us to get all the kinks out.”
Daniel Olsen, Zack De Leo and Alex Armitage all got their chance on the mound. “All three threw well, especially with the plate umpire’s low strike zone,” Walston said. “They all adapted well.”

Bishop softball team drops first HDL game

April 24, 2013

Where was Wily Coyote when the Bishop Lady Broncos needed him?
Tied with the Rosamond Roadrunners softball team for first place in the High Desert League, the 4-0 Broncos fell victim to untimely errors and solid Roadrunner pitching with their 1-5 loss Tuesday afternoon on home field. What they could have used were a few sticks of dynamite or a piece of Acme heavy equipment to disrupt a very strong Rosamond team.

Broncos JV round-up

April 24, 2013

The Bishop Broncos junior varsity baseball team ran rings around the Rosamond Roadrunners at home Tuesday. The 10-0 win maintains the Broncos perfect league season.
“The boys are getting the proper work in at practice and it shows,” said coach Chris Walston. “I couldn’t be happier with how they’re playing.”
Bronco Thomas Montoya pitched four and two-thirds innings with 11 strikeouts and 1 walk. Alex Armitage came in in the bottom of the fourth to finish out the game with 4 strikeouts and 2 walks.

Lady Broncos beat Kern Valley

April 22, 2013

Kern Valley has been in the Bishop softball team’s crosshairs since, probably, forever.
Friday afternoon at Lake Isabella, the Lady Broncos scored that long-awaited hit, taking down the Broncs, 3-1 to stay perfect in High Desert League play, tied 4-0 with Rosamond.
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.”

Eagles stampede Mustangs

April 22, 2013

Lone Pine’s Lady Golden Eagles leveled the Mojave Mustangs on the road Friday with a big 17-1 win.
“We came out a little flat in the first two innings,” said coach Liz Jones who chalked the flatness up to the team “just making the coach nervous.”
Lone Pine took off in the third, burying the Mustangs with hits.
The Eagles, 3-2, are third in Desert Mountain League, nipping at the heels of the Boron at 5-0 and Vasquez, 4-1. Lone Pine heads to Vasquez tomorrow.

Bishop Broncos home after rough losses on the road

April 22, 2013

The Bishop Broncos fell to the Kern Valley Broncs, 0-8, Friday afternoon.
Both teams are now 2-2, behind the undefeated Frazier Mountain Falcons and the Rosamond Roadrunners at 3-1. Bishop faces Rosamond at home this afternoon.
“We had three hours of batting practice Saturday,” said coach Tim Reid. “After a tough week, that helped get us back on track, helped us regain our confidence. We’ll be ready for Rosamond.”
“We’re in a slump,” he said. “We need to start hitting the ball and take the pressure off the pitcher.”
