Lone Pine lost game three 25-14. Game 4 Lone Pine placed Libero Lacie Jones into a regular jersey and inserted her into the middle blocker position giving the Lady Eagles six players on the court. Lone Pine lost game four 25-20. With the loss, Lone Pine is now 6-4 in DML, 10-10-2 overall.

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”.
