October 14, 2010

The Big Pine Warriors volleyball team lost a hard-fought, homecourt battle against the feisty Lee Vining Tigers Tuesday. The Tigers took three of four games but the winning margin in each was no greater than 5 points.
“We were pretty good,” said coach Angie Argyle, “but we could have done better. We’re having trouble finishing matches. We beat Lee Vining in tournament play and should have been able to beat them in league play.”
The Warriors are now 2-4 in league play and 4-6 overall.

October 12, 2010

Bishop High’s undefeated season came to an end Friday night as the Bishop’s Knights checkmated the Broncos in La Jolla. The final score: 10-21.
“We didn’t play that well,” said coach Bill Egan. “They just had a better team. The Knights weren’t any bigger, they weren’t any more physical. We just got out-blocked and out-tackled.”
The Broncos were in the game to the end and played a closer contest than the score reflected. “We weren’t dominated,” said Egan. “If we’d had some breaks go differently, we could’ve won it.”
