Bishop Bronco Ski Team Off To A Shredding Start

The Bishop Bronco High School Ski Team competed last week in a series of races against the Mammoth Huskies and the Rim of the World Fighting Scot’s (Lake Arrowhead. )

Bishop’s Coach Bill Egan was incredibly proud of how the students performed. For several team members, this was the first time racing and they all did very well.

In the first Giant Slalom race, junior Wyatt Schober (main photo) placed second and senior Jack McKinzey placed third.

All of the Bishop men placed in the top 11 in a field of 24.  Senior Marion Beadle was the only woman able to compete for BUHS and had an excellent outing.

Dodgers’ 40-Man Roster Predictions

With the New Year and a fair amount of change already having taken place, it’s a good time to take a look at where the Dodgers 40-man roster stands as of early January. – Remembering pitchers and catchers show up for Arizona spring training in just seven weeks. 

First, let’s look at who’s missing from last year’s team.

Gone

  • Scott Alexander (DFA)
  • Andy Burns (Outrighted)
  • Danny Duffy (Free agent)
  • Joe Kelly (Free agent)
  • Kenley Jansen (Free agent)
  • Clayton Kershaw (Free agent)
  • Corey Knebel (Signed 1 year deal with PHI)
  • Sheldon Neuse (DFA)
  • Jimmy Nelson (Free agent)
  • Billy McKinney (Traded)
  • Albert Pujols (Free agent)
  • Zach Reks (Traded)
  • Max Scherzer (Signed 3-year deal with NYM)
  • Corey Seager (Signed 10-year deal with TEX)
  • Jimmy Sherfy (Outrighted)
  • Steven Souza (Free agent)

Additions This Winter

  • Andrew Heaney (1-year deal)
  • Daniel Hudson (1-year deal)
  • Jorbit Vivas (Rule 5 protection)
  • James Outman (Rule 5 protection)
  • Eddys Leonard (Rule 5 protection)
  • Jacob Amaya (Rule 5 protection)
  • Michael Grove (Rule 5 protection)

40-Man Roster As It Stands Now

Pitchers
  • Trevor Bauer
  • Phil Bickford
  • Justin Bruihl
  • Walker Buehler
  • Garrett Cleavinger
  • Caleb Ferguson
  • Tony Gonsolin
  • Victor Gonzalez
  • Brusdar Graterol
  • Michael Grove
  • Andrew Heaney
  • Daniel Hudson
  • Andre Jackson
  • Tommy Kahnle
  • Dustin May
  • Darien Nunez
  • Evan Phillips
  • David Price
  • Blake Treinen

  • Gavin Lux
  • Max Muncy

Outfielders

Will this be the final roster by opening day? Absolutely not. With the MLB lockout in place, transactions are, of course, frozen. Once teams can get back to work, it’s easy to assume the Dodgers try to add a starting pitcher or two before or into spring training.

This very much changes depending on how the league and the team handle Trevor Bauer’s legal situation. He currently remains under investigation for allegations of sexual assault.

Projected Lineup

  1. Mookie Betts (RF)
  2. Max Muncy (1B)
  3. Trea Turner (SS)
  4. Will Smith (C)
  5. Justin Turner (3B)
  6. Cody Bellinger (CF)
  7. AJ Pollock (DH)
  8. Chris Taylor (LF)
  9. Gavin Lux (2B)

BUSD Covid Policy Will Help Student-Athletes Play

This week, the BUSD School Board voted unanimously to adopt a “Test to Play” policy, allowing students and staff who have been identified as close contacts due to a school-based COVID exposure to continue to participate in extracurricular activities given that they are:
– Asymptomatic, and
– Testing [negative] twice-weekly during modified quarantine per CDPH guidelines or have proof of vaccination.
This policy will go into effect immediately in order to support students to stay engaged, connected, and playing alongside their teammates and peers.

Recently, we have experienced a decline in Covid infection active cases, (down 75% in last four weeks) compared to the spike in cases during the month of October.  Hopefully this trend continues and helps to alleviate the challenges that have been put upon schools to operate safely and smoothly.

Thank you to the students, staff, and our community as a whole for doing what it takes to make this possible; we know it hasn’t been easy.  We will continue to make decisions that support all students to be in class, learning and growing together.

Hawthorne Little League Will Play in 2022

With  the threat of shutting down next year, due to lack of parent participation, in what was to be the last Board meeting, the Mineral County Little League got a shot in the arm when 12 people showed up on November 2, willing to help..

Originally, no parent volunteers showed up to the Board of Directors nomination meeting on October 25. League leaders said the program would have to shut down.

Outgoing Board President Sarah Dillard stated, “The meeting went fantastic.” She stated people even joined in on Zoom to volunteer.

About 125 players will now be able to join the 2022 Hawthorne Little League.

Bishop Bronco Football Ends Stellar Season

(STORY UPDATE 11-10 @ 8:00 a.m.) Broncos Head Coach Arnie Palu added that as a long-standing tradition, the seniors were honored for their incredible season. Recognized were seniors Kennedy Batchelder, Uriah Benally,  Haidon Brooks,  Tristan Cooper,  Jake Frigerio, Hector Martinez, Colt Matteson, Zach Mojarro, Joseph Morales, Shane Norris, Joseph Red Owl,  Jakob Redmond, Walker Rost Kruger, Andrew Steedle. and Austin Van Nest,

 

The Bishop Union High School Broncos team fell in their first playoff game last Friday ( 11-5)  to the Tehachapi High School Warriors  28 – 14.

The Broncos were ahead until the last four minutes of the game, posting two TD’s prior to the 4th quarter. Both teams posted one TD during the start of the 4th quarter.

The Warriors came back and scored two more TD’s in the final four minutes of the game.

Prior to the playoff game, the Broncos ended up undefeated in the High Desert League – ending 4-0, with an overall 8-2 season.

 

According to several fans, unfortunately the Broncos played so well during the season, the Central Section of CIF moved the team up into Division IV for the playoffs, where they were scheduled against higher ranked teams with larger rosters.

Coach Arnie Palu, and we Bronco fans, are very proud of our team. They represented Bishop as good sportsmen, talented players, and great community servants, raising some $400+ for Eastern Sierra Cancer Alliance every time the team scored and sacked an opposing quarterback in October.
