Big Pine Grad Honored

Former Big Pine Warrior honored

Korina Kemp-Riggin started playing volleyball for Big Pine in junior high school. In high school she was named All-League and All-CIF as a Lady Warrior and then went on to compete at the national level with a scholarship to Cal State University at Los Angeles.  Last Tuesday, the 1990 Big Pine High graduate was inducted into the CSULA’s Athletic Hall of Fame.
Riggin, the daughter of Jim Kemp and the late Linda Kemp of Big Pine, was cited as a major reason for CSULA’s Golden Warriors volleyball program’s improved successes. The Golden Eagles had only one winning season prior to Kemp’s 1992 sophomore season. That year CSULA was 25-10 and advanced to the national semi-finals. Riggin holds the number two spot at CSULA with 169 career aces and fifth in kills with 1,271.
The following year, Riggin and the Eagles went on to the regional championship match. In Riggin’s senior year, the Eagles started the season with 18 consecutive wins and held the number two spot in the national rankings during the season.
Individual honors for the former Warrior included American Volleyball Coaches Association 2nd team All-American in 1993, 1st team All-American in 1994 and All-Region in 1993 and 1994, All-California Collegiate Athletic Association first team in 1993 and 1994.
Riggin graduated from CSULA in 1995 with a major in communications and lives with her husband Mitch in Cave Creek, Arizona. She is a freelance TV camera operator covering Major League Baseball, National Basketball Association, National Football League games and the Olympics, both summer and winter.

Bronco Baseball Broadcast Schedule

Bronco Baseball Broadcast Schedule

KBOV  will broadcast live Bishop Union High School baseball this spring.  This will be the 13th consecutive season for live Bronco Baseball on 1230 AM.  The games will also be streamed live here at  Fans can click on the listen live link on the home page.  Veteran Broadcaster Arnie Palu will have the play by play.

The 2015 Broncos are under the direction of new manager Chris Walston.  The long time assistant coach will get his first chance to manage the varsity broncos.  During his time on the BUHS staff the graduate of Lakeside El Capitan High School has worked with both the Bronco JV and varsity teams.

The 2015 Broncos will feature just 4 returning starters.  Catcher Colten Riesen, pitcher Justin Hollowell, along with infielders Jeremy Fie and  Jake Trainor all made starts last season.  Riesen led the 2014 broncos in almost every offensive category and will be a High Desert League MVP candidate.  Riesen and fellow senior Justin Hollowell are both entering their third varsity season.  The Bronco pitching staff will get a boost from the return of senior Alex Sipes.  Sipes started 2014 very strong, but due to academic challenges missed the second half of the season.

Bishop finished as runners up in the High Desert League in 2014.  Rival Kern Valley won the title.

Lone Pine will now travel to Santa Barbara to face  #9 Bishop Diego.  The second round game will be played Friday night.  A win in the second round would most likely set up a quarterfinal game with #1 seed Bell Jeff.  The potential Bell Jeff-Lone Pine showdown would be played in Bell Jeff on Tuesday, February 24th.

Bishop Girls dominate Rival Kern Valley

Bishop Union High School Girls Basketball crushes KV

A very physical game favored the tough Bronco girls Wednesday night as they beat up rival Kern Valley 52-30 wrapping up a perfect 8-0 league record.  Bishop was much more comfortable in the “no blood, no foul” game.  The Broncos used a physical defensive effort opening a 13-5 lead at the close of the first quarter.  Junior Sabrina Barlow keyed the defensive effort shutting down Kern Valley’s top player Rebecca Gallis.  Barlow’s tough play frustrated Gallis limiting her to 11 points.  Gallis, daughter of head coach Bill Gallis, entered the game averaging 27 points per game.  Barlow was the defensive star on senior night, while senior Tamia Shoshone padded her MVP resume with yet another double double.  Shoshone, daughter of head coach Rebecca Andreas, scored a game high 18 points and pulled down 12 rebounds.  Bishop will enter the CIF central section playoffs at the #1 team out of the High Desert League.  The bracket will be posted Saturday.
Kern Valley   30
Bishop Union  52
Tamia Shoshone 18 points, 12 rebounds, 3 assists.
Sabrina Barlow 10 points, 3 assist.
Topah Scherer 8 points, 3 steals.
Maria Jimenez 6 points, 2 assists, 3 steals.
Little Eva Lent 5 points, 9 rebounds, 4 blocks, 3 steals.
Sophia Thomas 2 points.
Rosalind Cardenas 2 points.
Cienna Martinez 1 point, 3 steals.

Varsity Boys Basketball
Bishop built a 12-6 lead midway through the 1st quarter, but Kern Valley’s tight defense would limit Bishop to just 2 field goals the remainder of the half.  Kern Valley outscored Bishop 20-7 in the second quarter building a 31-19 halftime lead.  KV would maintain a very comfortable lead in the second half winning 56-35.  Bishop finishes with a 2-6 HDL record and 13-15 overall record eliminating them from the post season.  Had Bishop beat KV, the Broncos would have hit the required .500 record required to submit a petition for postseason play.  The broncos honored their 5 seniors prior to the game.  River Mallory, Ryan Lent, Jake Traynor, Thomas Montoya and Ty Tucker all played their final games Wednesday night.  Sean Brown and Ryan Lent were the standouts for the Broncos playing with great energy on a night where the Broncos struggled overall.
Sean Brown 13, Thomas Montoya 9, Ryan Lent 6, River Mallory 4, Brandon Forrest 3.

JV Boys
The JV boys capped a 16-0 season with a 30-23 win over rival Kern Valley.  Bishop led 28-14 at the start of the 4th quarter and for a second straight game scored just two fourth quarter points.  The Broncos played just enough defense to hold on for the win. Congratulations to Coach Gordon Moose and assistant Chris Eldridge on their perfect season.
Trace Sapp 15, Tommy Ruelas 7, Anthony Vega 6, Gene Dondero 1, Mike Molina 1.
