Mammoth hoopsters prep for league play

December 19, 2013

The Mammoth Huskies basketball team, fresh off “character builder” losses at last weekend’s Whittell (Nev.) Tournament, is putting together the finishing touches before they begin play in the Desert Mountain League on Dec. 27.

If their 73-47 loss to Incline and their 71-38 loss to host school Whittell on Saturday was tough to take, their 56-48 victory against Lee Vining might have ameliorated the sting of the losses.

The bright spot in Nevada belonged to Fox Kailiawa.

Third quarter meltdown dooms Mammoth in 55-27 loss at Desert

September 23, 2013

The Mammoth Huskies learned a thing or two about the art of a quick turnaround Friday night against the Desert Scorpions at Edwards Air Force Base.

Cruising along comfortably after two quarters and with a possible road victory within sight, the Huskies came out of the locker room at halftime and were stung so quickly it was hard for them to know what bit them.

The final was 55-27, but in the third quarter, Desert overwhelmed Mammoth repeatedly, putting up 30 points in less than 12 minutes and putting the game out of reach.

September 19, 2013

Home court advantage, elusive at any level in any sport, was missing for the Mammoth Huskies volleyball team last weekend.

Playing in its own tournament on Friday, Sept. 13 and Saturday, Sept. 14, the Huskies fell to fourth place in the Mammoth Invitational Volleyball Tournament at Mammoth High School.

“We were very pleased with the overall level of play at this year’s tournament,” said Mammoth head coach John Morris. “This is probably the strongest group of teams we have ever had.”

September 15, 2013

A funny thing happened to the Mammoth Huskies on their way to a loss to Bishop.

Bishop comes calling on Huskies

September 12, 2013

 

The Mammoth Huskies, off to a 1-0 start in the 2013 football season, ran through their drills this past week as if Friday night’s game were just another bump on the schedule.

It isn’t.

In spite of a season-opening loss to Whittier Christian, the Bishop Broncos and Head Coach Bill Egan pay a visit to Gault-McClure Stadium for their 7 p.m. varsity game, and if history is a guide, that means trouble.

Nevada City pro takes the Kamikaze crown

September 12, 2013

To Graeme Pitts, everything felt as if it were in place for a big day in Mammoth.

Just in from pro mountain bike racing in Canada and on his way to Norway for the UCI World Cup championships, Pitts bounced out of his car, straightened his 6-foot, 2-inch body into a semi-salute, stuck out his chest and took a deep, happy breath.

“I’ve always heard about Mammoth and the Kamikaze,” he said. “I wasn’t going to miss this.”
