The Bishop Bronco JV basketball team finished up a tremendous undefeated season by beating Kern Valley 43-37. The first half was a tight game with both teams playing tough defense. Bishop went into the half with a 21-17 lead. The third quarter saw Bishop come out hot and their defense tightened up as they closed out the quarter 20-5. With a 19 point lead going into the 4th, the Broncos were able to get their whole 18 man roster in the game. It was a great way to finish the season. Emory Dondero lead the Broncos with 16 points, 4 assists and 2 steals. Brady Kalk had 5 points and 7 rebounds, Elijah Reynolds added 5 points, 3 rebounds and an assist. Trace Seitz had 4 points, 4 rebounds and 2 steals, Charlie Lewis had 4 points and 1 rebound, Richie Talavera had 3 points, 3 rebounds and 2 assists, Will Kemp had 2 points, 4 rebounds and 2 steals, and Brody Banning had 2 points and a steal.
This group of kids have been a lot of fun to coach. They all get along great with each other, are respectful at all times, intense when asked, and all showed tremendous sportsmanship throughout the season. The potential they have for the years to come is unlimited.
I want to thank the administration, my assistant, Jeff Kilgore, and everyone involved who helped make this season special.
