Lady Broncos go 7-3 in pre-league
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 Royalsâ€™ pitcher suffered arm problems during warm up. Erwin and Kellie Tiner rotated between teams for six innings of play.
Immediately after the 10-0 scrimmage, Bishop got serious going into a real game against the Vasquez Mustangs, winning 11-3.
â€śIâ€™m proud of the girls for rolling with the punches,â€ť said coach Stacy Van Nest. â€śKellie and Megan displayed great sportsmanship by jumping in on the other team, after some coaxing, as did Katelyne Lent for coaching through the scrimmage.
â€śEveryone played well and our offense really exploded in the second game.â€ť
Bishop is now 7-3 in pre-league and will take a long break until a matchup with Paraclete on the road, April 5, and the High Desert League opener at Cal City, April 10.
