Bishop Union Improves to 2-2. Written by Arnie Palu
Bishop Union High School’s varsity football team used a tremendous defensive effort topping Arrowhead Christian Academy 21-14 Friday night. The Broncos now enter their bye week with a skip in their step after taking down a team that beat them a year ago. Bishop Union will now become road warriors coming out of their bye week with four straight road games. Upcoming trips include Paraclete, Rosamond, Sierra Canyon and California City. Bishop Union wraps up the regular season with back to back home games against Frazier Mt and rival Kern Valley.
Arrowhead Christian opened Friday nights game with a defensive score. ACA’s Tyler Mattson picked up a Bronco fumble and ran 24-yards for a touchdown. Bishop Union answered back with a 65-yard scoring drive highlighted by a Ryan Graves to Hunter Kampmoyer pass covering 43-yards. Mike Molina finished the drive with a 2-yard touchdown run.
Late in the first quarter the Broncos defense would have a chance to match the ACA defensive score. Bishop Union’s defense would force a fumble in the endzone and Angel Santana would fall on the ball giving the Broncos a 14-7 lead.
The game would settle into a defensive struggle with the score holding until midway through the 4th quarter when Bishop Junior Sean Brown took a reverse in from 29-yards out. ACA would answer the Bronco score with a 68-yard scoring drive capped by a Joesph Yarber 7-yard run. The ACA score came with 4:22 left on the 4th quarter clock.
The Bronco defense would have to make one more stop ending the game with Mike Molina sacking the ACA quarterback on 4th and long. The Bronco defense was outstanding throughout the night keeping ACA from establishing any type of offensive momentum. Izaak Morgenstein, Austin Jones, and Moran West all intercepted passes. The Bronco defensive line, especially Ryan Rennie and Anthony Miller provided pressure throughout the game.
The Bronco Varsity improve to 2-2 with a Bye this week. Bishop Union will then hit the road Friday, October 2nd for a non-league match up with Paraclete. The game will be broadcast live on AM 1230 KBOV and streamed live here at kibskbov.com.

Beck coached on the BUHS staff on two seperate occasions, most recently during the 2008 season.

The Mammoth Huskies Volleyball team hosted the Mammoth Volleyball Invitational Tournament this past weekend and placed 3rd behind Yosemite (Oakhurst) and tournament champion Brentwood (Los Angeles). 12 teams participated in total.
The Huskies started very strong in Friday’s pool play defeating Rosamond, Kern Valley and Bishop JV and posted a perfect 6-0 record. Mammoth began Saturday’s double elimination tournament as the 2nd seed and defeated Rosamond in straight sets. The Huskies then faced perennial power Yosemite (Division 2) in the winners bracket semi-final and prevailed 21-12, 20-21, 17-15 in front of a very loud and excited home crowd. In the winner’s bracket final Mammoth faced Brentwood. another Division 2 team and put up a great fight before losing 21-20 and 21-10. The Huskies final match came against Yosemite again in the loser’s bracket final. Mammoth lost a heart breaker 21-20, 21-20 to place third. Brentwood defeated Yosemite in straight sets to win the Invitational.
Said Mammoth head coach John Morris, “It’s hard to describe how well we played this weekend. Both Yosemite and Brentwood are Division 2 teams (Mammoth is in Division 4a), much larger schools with a lot more club volleyball experience. To play them so closely was incredible. This was the best 2 days of volleyball I have ever seen a Mammoth team play. Our girls have worked very hard to get to this level and the season ahead looks bright. The tournament as a whole was a big success and I think all the teams enjoyed our Mammoth hospitality and our new gym.”
The Huskies travel to California City on September 18 and 19 for the Cal City Tournament before beginning their league season against Vasquez at home on September 24.

Both varsity and JV played in the annual Mammoth Invitational
Tournament this past weekend. Bishop Varsity had their ups and downs at the Mammoth Invitational. The inexperience of this young team and having 2 starters out with injuries proved to be challenging as they found it difficult to find their momentum and play with cohesion. With a record of 7 and 7 on the weekend, the Broncos learned a lot and will be applying the knowledge and experience to each of their upcoming matches.
As Bishop JV was one of only two JV teams competing in the tournament, the team’s only expectation was that they would play a lot of good volleyball. Competition was tough but they played well enough to win 3 out of 11 games in 5 matches. The coaches were especially impressed with the team’s serve reception. While Bishop JV had never practiced with hard serves common in a varsity match, they nonetheless successfully returned 77% of the serves. Overall, both coaches and players were pleased with how well the team did.
