Bad Day at KV

Bishop Baseball and Softball drop 3 to Rival KV

Plenty of sunshine at Lake Isabella this past Friday, but Bronco runs where as sparse as the waters of the nearby lake.  With Lake Isabella at historically low levels, bishop dropped both softball games and  the varsity baseball game.  Bishop Union’s varsity teams managed just 2 combined runs.  The lone win Friday was a bronco JV baseball victory.  It’s not all doom and gloom as the Broncos hit Easter break, Bishop was competitive in all the ball games with two more shots at their rivals.  Bishop will wrap up the regular season with a two game set with KV, Tuesday, May 5th and Thursday May 7th.   At Easter Break Bishop varsity baseball and softball teams are even with KV with one High Desert League loss, with everyone trailing league leader Rosamond.  Both Rosamond baseball and softball teams are unbeaten in HDL play at the break.  Bishop will return to HDL play on Tuesday, April 7th with a trip to Rosamond.  All bronco boys varsity baseball games are broadcast live on AM 1230 KBOV and streamed live here at kibskbov.com.

Varsity Baseball
KV   10

Bishop scored a run in the top of the 1st inning thanks to a pair of bunt singles by Jeremy Fie and Jake Traynor, and a RBI ground out by Justin Hollowell.  But that would be all the broncos could scratch out against KV starter Dalton Gallis.  Gallis struck out 11 broncos earning the complete game victory.
Stat leaders
Jeremy Fie, 1 for 2, Run.
Jake Traynor, 2 for 4.
Brodie Maloney, 1 for 4.  2 IP, 3 strikeouts.

Scoreless dual through 3 and a half innings, KV broke through for 3 runs in the bottom of the 4th, and added a run in the 6th.  Bishop would break through in the top of the 7th, but fall short 4-1.  Coach Mike Jones, “Our hitting was not up to par today, we were watching too many balls go by, we have been averaging about 3 strikeouts per game, we had 12 today.”  Sam Riesen was the hard luck losing pitcher striking out 5 and allowing just one ball to be hit out of the infield.
Stat Leaders
Bailee Piper, 1 for 3.

The Bishop varsity girls soccer team traveled to Bakersfield Thursday defeating rival Kern Valley claiming the outright High Desert League title.  Bishop won 2-0 improving to 7-0-1 in league play.   Scoring goals for the Broncos were senior Brenda Gonzalez and sophomore Karla Castilla.  Coach Manny Terasas commented, “The team played well. Great play all around. Kila Miller stepped up in the back playing great defense. Brenda Gonzalez had a great goal from a free kick about 25 yards out.  The other goal came off a great run by Kailyn Boxley. She took a shot to the far post. The keeper for Kern made a great save, but the rebound was put away nicely by Karla Castilla.”  Terasas closed by saying, “I am very proud of the girls.  We had some key injuries in the game but the subs filled in nicely.”

The Bishop varsity boys defeat Kern Valley 8-2, with 4 goals for senior Elijah Alexander, two goals for freshman Diego Solorio, and one goal each for seniors Joe Domke and Joey Griego.
