Bishop Massacre Foothill to Win the Championship

A Trojan Horse entered through the gates of Troy Tuesday afternoon as the Bishop Broncos slaughtered the Foothill Trojans to take the CIF Division VI Championship.

However, this Trojan war didn’t last nearly as long as the one featured in ancient mythology. Instead of a war which lasted for ten years, it seemed like this one lasted for ten minutes.

Playing the role of the Greeks were the Bishop Broncos, who caught their opposition by surprise when they scored nine runs in the first inning, which ended the game before it had even begun.

Braeden Gillem got a lead-off double, which put him in scoring position. Michael Kubiak was then walked and now Bishop had two on base, setting up the perfect opportunity for the next batter to drive a few runs in.

Senior, Cal Omohundro hit a two RBI double his first time at the plate, giving the Broncos a 2-0 lead early.

The next player to get a piece of the action was Jalen Watterson, who knocked in a few more runs, which made it 4-0 with nobody out.

As the inning dragged on for the Trojans, they finally got two outs, and just when it felt like they were going to find a way to salvage part of the first inning, they loaded the bases for Michael Kubiak.

Uh oh…

Kubiak crushed Sal Peru’s ball to dead center field, which kept traveling until it reached it’s final destination at 350 feet. The senior hit a grand slam, after launching one out of the park in the last week against Lindsay.

The first inning finally came to a close and the Broncos had a 9-0 lead.

Playing the role of Odysseus in this game was Cal Omohundro, who had 7 RBI’s in the championship. When it was the big guy’s turn for his second at-bat, he obliterated a ball to left-center field for a three run home run, which gave the Broncos a 15-0  lead.

The innings continued, and more runs were piled on until the game finally ended 25-2. The margin of victory was the second largest the Broncos had all season, with the first being a 25-1 win against the lowly California City Ravens, who finished second to last in the High Desert League.

As for Foothill, the championship game was the worst defeat they have suffered all year.

Bishop finished their season with an 18-4 overall record and are the 2019 CIF Central Section Division VI Champions.

Tia Barfield Dominates Master’s Wrestling Tournament

Last week, two of the five wrestlers on the Bronco wrestling team competed in 2-day Master’s tournaments in Lemoore. In Master’s tournaments, the top wrestlers qualify for the state tournaments, which are this week.

Senior Mark Mayhugh wrestled in a very tough weight class at 128 pounds, where there were 10 ranked wrestlers, including the top two ranked wrestlers in the state. Mark got a tough draw right off the bat, facing the Number 2 ranked wrestler and although he
wrestled well, he lost. In the consolation bracket, Mark won a match and then faced another tough wrestler and lost by a score of 0-2.

Coach Hodges said, “Mark went out there and wrestled his best. He is a great kid and one of the best wrestlers Bishop has ever had. He is planning on wrestling in college, which will be a first for Bishop as we have never had someone continue wrestling at college.”

Senior Tia Barfield, wrestling at 162 pounds, stormed through her Master’s tournament with no points scored against her. On the first day, Tia pinned her first two opponents in 29 and 44 seconds respectively. On the second day, Tia met the same two girls she saw
last week at the CIF tournament. She scored pins in both matches, finishing off her opponent in the finals in just 45 seconds. Tia becomes the second Master’s Champion wrestler from Bishop; the first was Randy Rogers back in 1985.

Coach Mark Hodges said, “Tia became eligible only in late December. Even so, she has a record of 25 wins and 1 loss. Tia impresses everyone with her wrestling prowess. Unlike many wrestlers, her goal is not to ‘make it to state’, but rather to win the state championship. Tia will be competing in the State Tournament in Bakersfield starting Thursday, where she is currently seeded #4 in the state. Tia and Mark become just the 5th and 6th Bronco wrestlers to ever make it to a Master’s tournament, which is testament to how good they are.”
