BRONCO VARSITY ARE MOVING ON IN THE PLAYOFFS

The Bishop Boys Varsity Baseball team took out the Caruthers  Blue Raiders  on Wednesday with the final score of 6-5.

Caruthers loaded the bases  in the first inning but Bronco starter Ace Selters pitched the boys out of that Jam.

Then the Bronco  bats came alive early and scored 3 runs in the bottom of the 1st.

Bronco infielder Reece Dondero deliver a couple of monster doubles in the game, had 2 RBI’s in the game with a stolen base.

Jake Frigerio slammed a triple in the bottom of the 1st and accounted for one of the three Bronco runs.

Now the Broncos wait to see if they are traveling to Minarets High School or hosting Lindsay high School next Wednesday, June 16th in the semi finals of Division 5 Baseball. Minarets is ranked #1 and Lindsay is ranked #8. Lets hope for an upset on Friday when those two get together so the Bishop Boys can host another at Tatum Field in Bishop!

Go Broncos!!

Lady Broncos Fall to the Scorpions

The Bronco Varsity Softball team took on the Desert Scorpions yesterday at the city park. The final score was a  Scorpion victory  5-1.

According to Head Coach Stacy Van Nest “We just couldn’t string our hits together to score more runs. Defensively we executed excellent bunt coverage and got the out every time. We have ended our regular season play as 5-3 in league and 5-5 overall. We are not sure what is next for the Broncos. Play off intent forms need to be turned in May 28 and the play off bracket will be released June 5. We are unsure if we will go for the play offs as of yet. And since we had to reschedule Boron, we do not know how we will finish in league as others teams have more league games to play. ”

Jasmyn Dondero pitched 7 innings and had 7 K’s and 7 hits.

Lauren Allen was 2 for 3 with a double.
Sadie Dishion was 1 for 2 with a double.
Jayda Jackson was 1 for 3 with a double.

Kayla Jackson was 1 for 2 and
MaNeSe Braithwaite was 1 for 4 at the plate.

Van Nest added “We would like to thank our seniors Lauren Allen, MaNeSe Braithwaite, Sadie Dishion, Jessica Doll, Jazmyn Dondero, and Kayla Rodriguez. We would also like to thank the City Park for great facilities and the parents for their support.”

As Stacy Van Nest mentioned, we will just have to wait and see if more softball is in the future for our Lady Broncos.

IMACA PUBLIC MEETING FOR OVERNIGHT HOMELESS PARKING

PRESS RELEASE

September 10, 2020

RE: NOTICE OF COMMUNITY VIDEO CONFERENCE TO REVIEW SAFE PARKING PROJECT PROPOSED AT BISHOP NAZARENE CHURCH

Inyo Mono Advocates for Community Action (IMACA) cordially invites interested community members to a virtual meeting (Zoom video conference) on Wednesday evening, September 16, 2020, at 6:00 p.m. The purpose of this meeting is to discuss IMACA’s proposal to operate a monitored, overnight parking lot for people experiencing homelessness and living out of their vehicles at the Bishop Nazarene Church located at 900 W. Line Street, Bishop, CA.
The Inyo County Planning Commission approved a Conditional Use Permit for the Nazarene Church Safe Parking Project in January of 2020, which was subsequently appealed to the Board of Supervisors. This community meeting and the appeal hearing were postponed due to the coronavirus pandemic. IMACA has operated an emergency parking lot at 910 N. Main Street since May of this year and would like to close the facility and then reopen at the Nazarene Church in Bishop.

The community meeting will include a presentation by IMACA staff of the proposed Safe Parking Operating and Security Plan followed by a moderated panel discussion with questions and comments from members of the public. Everyone will participate via Zoom video conference from individual, separate locations. The video conference is accessible to the public at https://www.imaca.net/safe-nazarene-church. Individuals will be asked to provide their name and an email address in order to access the video conference. Anyone who does not want to provide their email address may use the following generic, non-functioning address to gain access: donotreply@imaca.net.

Anyone wishing to make a comment prior to the meeting, or as the community meeting is being conducted, may do so either in writing, or by utilizing the “hand-waving” feature when appropriate in the Zoom meeting (the moderator will call on those who wish to speak). We encourage everyone to email comments and questions prior to the meeting to info@imaca.net.

Emailed comments may or may not be read aloud, but all comments will be made a part of the meeting record. We value community participation in this process and welcome recommendations that will improve our project to better serve the community.

Please call Larry Emerson at (760) 873-8557, extension 109, or contact him by email at lemerson@imaca.net with any questions or comments.

VARSITY BRONCO FOOTBALL LETS LOOSE ON BORON

Bishop High School Homecoming 2019…..

Photos by Gary Young

Story by Arnie Palu

 

We played a complete game in our homecoming win over Boron.

Senior Luke McClean accounted for 6 touchdowns, rushing for 4 scores and throwing 2 touchdown passes. Luke went over 100 yards passing and rushing. Luke was named our offensive player of the game.

Steven Paco keyed the rushing attack that rolled up over 300 yards on the night. Paco ran for 125-yards and a touchdown.

Joe Weaver caught a touchdown and ran in a score. Defensively Kennedy Batchelder made a team high 9 solo tackles and played great on the offensive line earning the overall player of the game award. Jaydan Braithwaite picked off two passes and made 5 solo tackles including a tackle for a loss. JB was named defensive player of the game.

Zach Mojarro came up from the JV team and played great on special teams. Mojarro was named our special teams player of the game. Every Bronco got playing time including the JV players who moved up this week. A big credit to Coach Rich Miears and the JV staff for doing a great job developing their athletes.

I would also like thank my varsity staff for their efforts. Defensive coordinator Rick Beall, linebacker/defensive line coach Chris Matteson, and defensive backs coach Carl Olson are doing a great job of preparing our kids to play. Offensive coordinator James Ferrell and quarterbacks coach/special teams coordinator Jake Evangelist continue to do great work.

This week we travel to California City for the High Desert League Championship game. Both teams are 4-0 in HDL play. The winner has the inside track to the #1 seed in the CIF central section division 6 playoffs. After two weeks off, the JV are expected to have a game with California City. Thanks for the coverage and have a great week. Coach Palu

SENIORS WIN IN POWDER PUFF

A defensive battle was the theme in the 2019 Powder Puff matchup between the Senior girls and the Junior girls.

It was a fun game to watch. I have never seen Football players smile so much on the gridiron !

Talking with Junior coach Clay Omohundro, Clay says ” This coaching thing is going to give me gray hair”!

The funniest play on the night was delivered by the Seniors on their first drive. More like a scrum then a play but it was effective to the tune of about 20 yards.

At the half the Seniors were clinging to a 2-0

The Seniors added to their score in the 3rd quarter with a TD run to make the score 8-0.

That was the final score in this defensive battle, Seniors 8 Juniors 0. Bragging rights to the team in Blue, Congrats Lady Broncos!

 

 

BRONCOS CRUISE TO THE WIN VS ROSAMOND

The Bishop Broncos hit the road this Friday night packing a four-game win streak as they traveled to Rosamond to do battle with Roadrunners.

Head Football coach Arnie Palu and his Mighty Broncos Defense came off the bus looking to impose there will in enemy territory. One of the most impressive things of the night was how the 93514 traveled in force to cheer on their Bishop Broncos to a 28-6 victory on Friday night.

With starting QB Clay Omohundro out for the season after last weeks game, thanks to the overall unsportsmanlike play of Kern Valley, Senior Luck McClean got the start and did not disappoint.

After a scoreless 1st quarter, Steven Paco and his lightning speed would take it to the house on a 45-yard touchdown run that would put the Broncos on the board with a 7-0 lead.

With the momentum meter pegged toward Bishop, Head Coach Arnie Palu’s defensive line would do what they do best, dominate the game.

With Coach Palu’s defensive game plan firmly in place, the Broncos would pin their ear’s back and send the house after the Rosamond punter resulting in a blocked punt and a fumble recovery for Bishop’s 2nd TD of the 1st half and a 14-0 lead.

14 points would be more than enough for the Broncos D, led by big number 77 Tristan Valle’s constant pressure, Eddie Ray’s 8 tackles and Kennedy Batchelder’s 10 tackles to go along with interceptions by Kennedy and Steven Paco. The Broncos defensive line were in the backfield of Rosamond so much, you would have thought they were running backs for the opposing team. The second half would be more of the same, the Roadrunners unsuccessfully attacking Bishop’s D-Line to no avail. The Broncos would tack on 14 more points in the 3rd quarter thanks to over 100 rushing yards and a touchdown run by quarterback Luke McClean.

Fellow speedster Joe Weaver would add a 5 yard TD run to ice the game leading Coach Arnie Palu’s Bishop Broncos to a dominate 28-6 W, extending his teams win streak to 5 games, a 3 and 0 league record, and a sweet 6 and 2 record on this 2019 season.

 

Everyone please, come out and support your Bishop Bronco’s football team as they look to continue their winning ways this Friday night against Boron in the 93514.
