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.”
Bishop’s Matt Ono placed third with an 86 in a three-way tie that included Lone Pine’s Neil Bhakta.
Eagle Casey Sullivan and Broncos Joey Medora and Sean Mitton were tied in sixth place with an 88.
“Clay Murray played well and shot a 108 in his first league match and only his second year of golf,” said Ono.
The next league match will be hosted by Mammoth at Bishop Country Club, April 28 with a 1 p.m. tee-off time.
