The Bishop Lady Broncos softball teams both came up with wins over California City Friday. The varsity won 1-0; the junior varsity 19-3.
“We were short handed,” said varsity coach Stacy Van Nest, “traveling with only 11 girls. The win took all 11 and they gave it everything they had.”
According to Van Nest, the lone run was deceptive. “We had several hard hits into the wind,” she said, “so our run doesn’t really show how well we were hitting.”
Megan Erwin pitched 7 innings, 10 strikeouts, 0 walks, 2 hits

In JV action, the Broncos bats had a field day, helped by a strong defense.
Taylor Hartshorn came in the third inning and contributed to the defense with a nice catch in center field for an out and an assist in the fourth for an out at third base.
Mariah Brooks retired the Ravens in the top of the fourth with a catch in left field.
The JV team is 10-3 overall and 3-2 in High Desert League.
