Husky volleyballers on a roll after strong Cal City Tourney

September 24, 2013

To hear coach John Morris tell it, the Mammoth Huskies volleyball team is fired up and ready to go.

Following a third-place finish last weekend’s Cal City Tournament, the Huskies begin High Desert League play on Friday, Sept. 27 against Desert at 4 p.m. and Desert Christian on Saturday at noon.

Both matches will be in the MHS gym.

The team, Morris said, is on a nice roll, following its fourth-place at the Mammoth Invitational on Sept. 13-14 with a third-place finish at Cal City on Sept. 20-21.

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.

Huskies fourth in Mammoth Invitational

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.”

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.”

Phillips steals the show in Fall Century/Gran Fondo

September 12, 2013

The first timed High Sierra Century race featured some blazing performances by cyclists who finished the 100-mile-plus course in less than five hours.

But in many respects, the day belonged to Mammoth’s Dennis Phillips.

It’s not that the longtime Mammoth resident won his 60-69 age group, or that he did it by nearly an hour, placing ninth overall in 5-hours, 9-minutes and 39 seconds.

The hardest race: Deena runs ‘brutal’ marathon

August 15, 2013

It was not supposed to end like it did.

Deena Kastor envisioned a Top 5 finish at the 2013 IAAF Track and Field World Championships in Moscow.

Nope.

Running in hot, 81-degree temperatures with high humidity on a shadeless course in central Moscow, Mammoth’s most famous female distance runner finished ninth last Saturday, Aug. 10, and not without having considered dropping out of the race “more than a dozen times.”

“It was a really hard race,” she said in a video interview made available on FloTrack.com.

Kimball nips Encisco in VC downhill

August 15, 2013

Johny Kimball needed just one-minute, 40-seconds to zoom down Mammoth Mountain’s downhill racetrack on Friday, Aug. 9, which gave him a full second to spare for a victory.

It didn’t seem like much—and it wasn’t—but it was enough to lift him to first over Brian Encisco. John Widden finished in 1:43 to complete the podium.

The full downhill results were as follows:

1.     Johny Kimball 1:40

2.     Brian Enciso 1:41

3.     John Widden 1:43
