JV Baseball Update
“The Yerington tournament was a great success for the JV Bishop Bronco baseball team. Team captains Noah Cathy and Andrew Rosga had great pitching performances against Lassen and Truckee. Darius Fierro and Jamison Wolfe had a great weekend at the plate batting 10 for 16 and 8 RBIs. Coach Helmbolt couldn’t be more proud of his players to play through the snow and rain. We are looking forward to start league play on Wednesday against the Burroughs. “
