BUHS JV battle Carson

Bishop Union Fall to Carson City

Bronco JV fall 37-26

The 2015 Bishop Union High School JV football team filled a gap in their schedule with a Friday night game with Carson City. The Senators made the trip to Bishop filling a void left by Whittier Christian. The Hearlds did not bring a JV team to town. The Broncos and Senators played a spirited, back and forth match with Carson coming out on top 37-26.

Bishop opened the scoring with a Trace Sapp 4-yard touchdown run midway through the first quarter. The Senators countered with a score of their own moving the score even at 7-7. The Broncos answered with a one-play touchdown drive. Sophomore Hunter Waasdorp made a great read on an option play pitching the ball to Chad Reeves for a 77-yard touchdown run. The Arturo Lemus point after moved Bishop on top 14-7. Carson answered with a score to pull within 14-13. Just before halftime Carson would take a lead after notching a safety.

Down 15-14 at the half Bishop would respond. Sophomore Trace Sapp returned the second half kick off for a touchdown putting the Broncos back on top 20-15. Carson would have the answer yet again going ahead 23-20 on another rushing touchdown. Bishop would take the lead back through the air. Waasdorp connected with freshman Arturo Lemus for a 69-yard touchdown pass putting the Broncos up 26-23. Carson would close out the game with a pair of scores winning 37-26.

The Bishop JV will continue their season this Friday with a trip to Yerington Nevada. JV kickoff is set for 4:30.

Mammoth Volleyball @ Yerington

Huskies thrive at Yerington Tournament

submitted by Mammoth Coach John Morris:

The Mammoth Huskies girls volleyball team opened their 2015 season this past weekend with their first entry into the very tough Yerington tournament. The tournament features 20 teams from all over northern Nevada and a few Eastern Sierra teams. Yerington High School, the host team, has won the Nevada state title for their division 6 out of the past 8 years.

The Huskies played very well on Friday winning 2 out of 3 matches and earning a berth to the Gold (top) tournament on Saturday. The Huskies defeated Moapa Valley and Wells and lost a very close and well played  match to Yerington 25-24, 25-20. Mammoth did not fare as well on Saturday losing to Dayton, Lowry and Spanish Springs before finishing with a win vs. Portola.

According to Mammoth head coach John Morris, “This was all about getting to know each other and playing some really tough teams. We have only been practicing for about a week, due to construction of our new gym floor. The Yerington tournament has a reputation for really high quality play and it was a big success for us to make it into the Gold tournament and to play against the best that were there. It was a great early season experience for our team.”

The 2015 Huskies are led by Senior outside hitters Callie Mowat and Taylor Sanders, Senior opposite hitter and defensive specialist Kira Shultz, Senior middle blocker Tatum Sandvigen, Junior setter McKenna Smith and Junior libero Caitlin Young. Mammoth hosts the Mammoth Volleyball Invitational tournament on September 11 and 12 at the newly renovated Mammoth High School gym. 12 teams from Oakhurst to LA plan to attend.

Bronco Football vs Whittier Christian

Whittier Christian spoils Bronco Opener

The Hearlds of Whittier Christian used two fourth quarter touchdowns to top Bishop 21-16 Friday night.  The Rough Fire near Hume Lake provided a haze filled night for a rough and tumble dual.  Both teams lost their starting running backs early.  Bishop’s Logan Stephenson was lost on the games opening kickoff.  Whittier Christian lost running back and middle linebacker Justin Osborn early.  Osborn left the game with a leg injury after a Hunter Kampmoyer tackle.

The Broncos opened the scoring with 2:50 left in the 1st quarter when sophomore Mike Molina found the end zone from 9-yards out.  Hunter Kampmoyer providing a great lead block.  Ethan Lamb connected on the point after putting Bishop Union up 7-0.

Whittier Christian answered with a 75-yard scoring drive.  Nick Watase filling in for Osborn finished the drive with a 4-yard run.  Whittier then pulled off the surprise on-side kick to grab full momentum.  Bronco Seniors Anthony Miller and Angel Santana would team up to get the ball back.  On the Hearld’s first play, Miller forced a fumble making a perfect strip-tackle, Santana made the fumble recovery and the Bronco offense took over.  Bishop Union would then drive within the WC 5-yard line.  The Broncos were lined up for a fourth and goal, but following a 5-yard penalty, would settled for a 25-yard Ethan Lamb field goal.   Bishop Union led 10-7 with 8:15 left in the first half.

The score would remain 10-7 until Whittier Christian’s Quinn Commans hit Cade McGee for a touchdown pass with 8:44 left in the 4th quarter.  The score capped a 89-yard drive putting WC on top 14-10.  WC  scored on their next possession with Nick Watase running in his second touchdown of the night.  Leading 21-10, WC would surrender a 61-yard Bronco scoring drive capped by a 11-yard touchdown pass from Ryan Graves to Mike Molina with 3:29 remaining.  Following the Graves to Molina score Bishop Union would try an onside kick, but the Hearlds would recover and run out the remaining time on the clock.

Bronco Volleyball 3rd at Yerington

BUHS has strong showing at Yerington Tournament

The Bronco Volleyball performed extremely well at the Yerington tournament.  The tournament played host to 20 highly competitive schools from Nevada and California.

Friday, the Broncos won first place in their pool refusing to drop a single game while going undefeated in all best 2 out of 3 matches.  This put the Broncos  into one of two gold brackets which included all the first and second place teams from each of the 4 pools.

According to Coach Linda Frigerio, “The team continued to perform at a high level on Saturday playing 4 matches.  They lost only one match all weekend to Yerington High School who inched past us in an intense 3 game match to go on to the championship game.  Broncos finished 6-1 and in a 3rd place position, their highest placement yet at the Yerington High School tournament.”

The Coach continued, “The wins came as a result of an entire team effort with the team averaging over 90% serving over the whole weekend, excellent team communication, and a strong desire to compete.  It was an excellent start to this young team’s season!”

The Bishop Union High School Volleyball team will next be in action Wednesday, September 9th hosting Lone Pine.  The JV will begin at 4pm with the Varsity to follow.
