Bronco Girls Soccer at Bakersfield

BUHS Girls finish as Runners up at Rebel Kick Off

The Bishop Union High School girls varsity traveled to the Rebel Kick Off Tournament in Bakersfield.  Assistant Coach Kathy Mckinley indicates that the tournament gave the Broncos  a chance to play teams more at our level from the central section.  The Broncos won three games in our section and tied one, putting the Bronco  through to the championship game.

The championship game was against a Division 2 team who are ranked 70 in the state of California.   Coach McKinley says, “We lost 4-0 to a very skilled athletic team, and even though we lost this game it was by the far the best I have seen the girls play so far this season. We are down to three seniors this year and two didn’t go to this tournament. The one senior that was there Alicia Campos did an incredible job the whole tournament along with Junior Captain Kristy Dohnel, and Sophomore Karla Castilla these three girls led their team showing outstanding work ethic and team work even in what was a hard fought final game. This team never gives up. It is a quality that will take them far this season.”

Bishops first game we played Mira Monte and won 2-0 with goals from Kailyn Boxley and Emily Ball, the second game the Broncos tied  South high school  1-1 with the one goal coming from a brilliant corner from Alicia Campos.
Saturday the Broncos faced Delano in the morning winning 5-0 after a little bit of a slow start, goals from Kailyn, Sarah Voss, and Tami Anderson with assists from Brittany Santana and Kailyn Boxley.
The second game Saturday was against North High School where Bishop  won again 3-0 with goals from  Chloe Almeida, Sarah Voss and Alicia Campos.
Coach McKinley commented, “Tournaments take a whole team, and most of the members don’t get mentioned in the media especially defenders but I would like to give special kudos to Maritza Garcia for her untiring and relentless work on the back line. We started our season playing some pretty tough teams and this tournament was a boost to us in many ways, primarily getting a few wins under our belt but also we saw the younger players grow in confidence. We were missing two of our starters, two players that often score goals for us so without them to rely on the team had to step up and find other ways to score. The girls did that and so we now go into league with a much more confident, stronger team.”

We play Rosamond at home on Tuesday, January 13th.

Bronco Hoops downs Liberty

BUHS Boys Basketball clips the Hawks

The Bronco Boys basketball teams wrapped up a two year home and away series with Liberty Madera High School with a pair of home wins Friday.  The Broncos won two very tight games last year in Madera, and wrapped up the series with two big wins at Gus Klekas gymnasium Friday afternoon.  The JV shot the lights out in the early game, while the varsity used a late rally to win.

In the varsity match up Bishop won by a final score of 76-71.  The Broncos trailed after a high scoring first quarter 22-19.  Liberty led 40-33 at the half.  The Liberty Hawks led 59-53 after 3.  Bishop coach Mark Olsen says, “The Broncos played hard and outlasted Liberty in the forth and final quarter.  Out scoring Liberty 23-12 in the 4th.”

Individual Stats for the Bishop Varsity:
Thomas Montoya 26 points, 2 rebounds, 5 assists
Ty Tucker 11 points, 7 rebounds, 2 steals, 5 assists
Druw Allen 11 points, 3 rebounds,  2 assists

Ryan Lent 2 points, 3 rebounds, 2 steals, 4 assists
Jake Traynor 4 points  1 rebound
Sean Brown 6 points, 8 rebounds, 1 assist

The Bronco JV used excellent outside shooting and great team speed winning 74-48.   Freshman Trace Sapp scored several baskets in transition and fellow freshman Tommy Ruelas dazzled at the point guard position.   Ruelas, a remarkable ball handler, commands the high scoring JV offense with a calm demeanor rarely seen in a 9th grader.  Ruelas scored 11 points in the win while freshman Mike Molina added 14.  Sophomore Anthony Vega chipped in with 14 including a couple long range 3-point baskets.  Freshman Moran West added 10 points and great hustle while Kelby Cherrick came of the bench with 5 points.  Kanyon Martinez added 3 points for the JV.

Bronco Wrestling vs Kern Valley

Bishop Bronco Wrestling

On Thursday, January 8th, the Bishop Bronco Wrestling team hosted Kern Valley for their first home dual meet of the season. The Bronco team consisted of:
Freshman Nolan Conway at 106 lbs
Sophomore Joseph Mayhugh at 145 lbs
Junior Angel Santana at 160 lbs
Junior Tyler Cox at 170 lbs
Junior Orlando Ruelas at 182 lbs
The meet started with junior Orlando Ruelas at 182 pounds receiving a forfeit.
Next up was freshman Nolan Conway wrestling at 106 lbs in his first ever match. Nolan wrestled enthusiastically, but made a crucial error and got caught and pinned.
Sophomore Joseph Mayhugh wrestled at 145 lbs against the same wrestler that pinned him in last year’s dual meet in Kern Valley. Joe was not feeling well and was able to wrestle the entire 6 minutes, but lost on points.
Junior Angel Santana, wrestling at 160 lbs had his hands full against a senior wrestler with 4 years of experience. Angel was not intimidated and took his opponent down in the first period.
It was a close match until the 3rd period when Angel got two 3‐point near falls and won the match with a 10‐5 decision.
The next match was at 170 pounds where junior Tyler Cox got pinned by a wrestler with a few years of experience.
Coach Joseph said, “It’s always hard when you lose at home, but 4 out our 5 wrestlers are first year wrestlers and it is hard to compete against teams with wrestlers that have 3 or 4 years of experience.”
The Bronco with the best record this season is Junior Angel Santana with a record of 7 ‐ 1 with 6 pins.
The next dual meet will be another home meet, this time against Rosamond on January 22nd.

Bishop Bronco Wrestling at Rosamond

Bishop Bronco Wrestling

Last Tuesday, the Bishop Bronco Wrestling team traveled to Rosamond for for their first league action of the season. The Bronco team consisted of:
Sophomore Joseph Mayhugh at 152 lbs
Junior Angel Santana at 160 lbs
Junior Tyler Cox at 170 lbs
Junior Orlando Ruelas at 182 lbs
Freshman Gabe Shoshone at 220 lbs
The meet started with Angel Santana wrestling at 160 pounds against a wrestler called “the strongest kid on the team” by his coach. Angel was able to take his opponent down but was
unable to pin him in the first period.  After a flurry of activity in the second period, with the score 7‐3 in Angel’s favor, Angel was able to pin his opponent.
The next match was at 170 pounds where Tyler Cox lost the match, but he did get the first takedown of the match.
At 183 pounds, the Rosamond team had no wrestler, so Orlando Ruelas received a forfeit.
Freshman Gabe Shoshone was very nervous before his first match as a Bronco, but those fears quickly disappeared when Gabe stepped on the mat in the 220 pound weight class. Gabe quickly took his opponent down and turned him to his back earning near fall points. Before his pinned his opponent in the 2nd period, Gabe had racked up an 11‐0 lead.
Rosamond had wrestlers in the next 5 weight classes, so the Broncos had to forfeit these matches, giving Rosamond a commanding 36‐18 lead.  In the last “official” match of the meet, sophomore Joseph Mayhugh completely dominated his opponent at 152 pounds. Upon reviewing the video of the match later, Head Coach Shaun Joseph said that “Joe used every move that we’ve taught him in that match. It was fun to watch.” After racking up a 15‐0 lead, Joe pinned his opponent in the 2nd period.  The meet ended with the score Rosamond 36 – Broncos 24, but with the Broncos winning 3 of
the 4 matches wrestled, the Broncos felt like they were the winners.
After the official matches, two exhibition matches were held: Junior Orlando Ruelas at 182 pounds wrestled one of the highest scoring matches seen in several years, points being scored so fast it was hard to keep track of them. In the end, Orlando won by default.
In the other exhibition match, Joseph Mayhugh dominated yet another Rosamond wrestler and pinned him in the 2nd period.
The Bronco with the best record this season is Junior Angel Santana with a record of 6 ‐ 1 with all 6 wins being pins.
The Broncos next face Kern Valley at home on January 8th.

Sophomore Joseph Mayhugh at 152 lbs

Junior Tyler Cox at 170 lbs
Junior Orlando Ruelas at 182 lbs

Things turned around in the next matches against Quartz Hill High School where Mayhugh defeated his opponent 10-7 and Santana pinning his opponent in just 43 seconds.
Mayhugh continued to dominate by pinning his opponent from Antelope Valley in the second period. Antelope Valley had no opponent at 160 or 170 lbs, so Santana went up to 182lbs where he pinned his opponent in the 2nd period.
The final matches for the Broncos were against Highland High School. In his match at 152, Mayhugh quickly fell behind and was nearly pinned in the first period. He fought back and by the m middle of the third period tied the score 12-12. With just seconds remaining, Joseph was able to pin his opponent. Angel Santana finished the day by pinning his opponent in just over 20 seconds.
Coach Shawn Joseph said, “I’m pleased with the quality of wrestling from both Joseph and Angel. I was very impressed by Joe coming back from a 0-8 deficit to tie the score and then pin his opponent. Angel continues to impress us with how quickly he learns moves and is able to use them in matches.”

The Bronco with the best record this season is Angel Santana with a record of 5 -1 with all 5 wins being pins.

The Broncos face Rosamond High School next week in dual tournament action.
