Boron, Desert set to Join the High Desert League

HDL officials Invite Boron and Desert

by Arnie Palu
January 26, 2016

High Desert League leadership met Monday at Kern Valley High School voting to expand the league.  HDL officials voted to accept both Boron and Desert High Schools.  The timeline for the Bobcats and Scorpions to officially enter the HDL will depend on CIF approval.  Both schools would be leaving the Desert Mountain League.

For Desert High School (Edwards Air Force Base) the vote Monday allows the Scorpions to re-enter the High Desert League.  Desert abandoned the HDL when the league made the move to the CIF-Central Section almost 3 years ago.

The Boron Bobcats and Bishop Union Broncos were long time rivals decades ago in the now defunct Desert-Inyo League.

The potential moves weaken the Desert Mountain League which is looking at losing three schools. Silver Valley (Yermo) is also opting out of the DML.  Lone Pine athletic director Mike Button is confirming that Silver Valley is joining the De Anza League.

Pending CIF approval the new High Desert League would include:

  1. Bishop Union
  2. Kern Valley (Lake Isabella)
  3. Frazier Mt (Lebec)
  4. Rosamond
  5. California City
  6. Boron
  7. Desert (Edwards AFB)

The Desert Mountain League would include:

  1. Mammoth
  2. Lone Pine
  3. Vasquez (Acton)
  4. Desert Christian (Lancaster)
  5. Mojave

Bishop Union High School girls soccer improves to 3-0 in High Desert League play with a 1-0 win at Frazier Mt.  Coach Manny Terrasas is quick to credit the fine play of the Bronco defense led by Kori Boxley, Emeli Mora, Karla Castilla, and Ritz Garcia.  Tied 0-0 at the half the Broncos scored the only goal of the match in the second half with freshman Katie “Bugs” Dohnel scoring with an assist from Brittany Santana.

The win moves the Broncos to 3-0 in HDL play, even with rival Kern Valley.  Both Bishop and KV notched 1-0 wins over Frazier Mt. While the Bishop/Kern Valley rivalry has not been a fierce one in soccer, KV looks to challenge Bishop in 2016.   Bishop Union will travel to Kern Valley next week with a trip to Lake Isabella set for Tuesday, January 26th.

HDL Standings
1. Bishop Union 3-0-0
2. Kern Valley  3-0-0
3. Frazier Mt.  1-2-0
4. Rosamond  0-2-1
5. California City 0-3-1

Thursday the Bronco Varsity boys could not maintain the momentum of their come-form-behind win Tuesday over California City.  Bishop Union fell to Frazier Thursday 3-0.  Bishop Union Coach Peter Thomsen said, “The first half was an evenly played match.  Frazier scored a late goal to take a 1-0 lead into half.  Frazier scored on two second half goals to secure the win.  Bishop had a number of drives at goal throughout the match but was unable to score.  Despite the loss Bishop remains in third place in league.  We have critical games next week against Kern (Tuesday away) and Rosamond (Thursday home).”

HDL Standings
1. Frazier Mt 3-0
2. Rosamond 3-0
