The Bishop Union High School varsity volleyball team improves to 6-1 on the 2015 season with a straight games win over Lone Pine. The Broncos swept the Wednesday dual at Gus Klekas gym 25-20, 25-10, 25-15. Lone Pine won the junior varsity match in straight games, 25-18, 25-13.
Both Bishop and Lone Pine will play this weekend at the Mammoth Tournament.
Bishop Coach Linda Frigerio
“Carly Todd led the team in kills with 44% of her 16 attacks scoring for the Broncos, followed by Rebeka Riesen and Little Eva Lent. Serving by the Broncos was outstanding. Sydney Frigerio started the second game with 9 unanswered serves including 3 aces. Ashley Worley capped the game with 5 straight points. Overall, half of Ashey’s 12 serves in the match were aces, giving her the highest serving percentage. As a team, the Broncos achieved a 95% success rate with their serves.”
Lone Pine Coach Mel Joseph
“Bishop kept us back on our heels the entire match with their aggressive serving and attacking. We did not bring the right attitude to compete. The only real highlight for us came in game three when we won a very long rally, had we played the entire match that way the outcome may have been different. This was a great preseason experience, one to build on as we head to the Mammoth Invitational this weekend”.

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.
The Tonopah Muckers opened the 2015 season with a strong 55-26 win over Sierra Lutheran. The game kicked off the KIBS “High School Football Game of the Week” schedule. Tonopah will be featured three more times in 2015, Friday, September 18th vs Alamo, Friday, September 25th vs Indian Springs and Thursday, October 29th vs. Beaver Dam.
