Huskies try for bounceback against Lucerne Valley

October 15, 2010

The Mammoth Huskies return home tonight after what seems much longer than two weeks on the road.
And this time, they play against a team whose name does not begin with “B.”

That may not seem like a big deal, but after the Huskies lost to the Bishop Broncos, 59-6, two weeks ago, and 50-6 to the Boron Bobcats last week, a name like Lucerne Valley has a nice ring to it.

The Huskies, 2-3 on the year and 0-1 in conference, play the 1-4 Mustangs tonight in a 7 p.m. game at Gault/McClure Stadium, with the junior varsity game set for 4 o’clock.

Lahontan cutthroats coming to Conway

October 15, 2010

Rumors that the endangered Lahontan cutthroat trout will not be stocked on the Mono County-owned Conway Ranch are just that, rumors, according to county economic development director Dan Lyster.

Lyster said plans to stock the ranch with 10,000 trout are still in place, even after rumors circulated throughout the fishing community that the ranch had been left off the list of state-approved stocking designations.

The rumors came from a Fish and Wildlife Service permit that mistakenly did not specifically state Conway as a destination for the fish.

Chris Lieto sixth in Hawaii triathlon

October 11, 2010

Mammoth's Chris Lieto was turned back in his bid to win the grueling the 140.6-mile Ironman Triathlon World Championship on Saturday in Hawaii.

After leading through much of the bicycle ride, Lieto had opened a 4-minute lead before finishing sixth.

Australia's Chris McCormack rallied with a strong marathon run to win the race.

McCormack, known as Macca, was 11 minutes behind leader Torbjorn Sindballe of Denmark at the end of the 112-mile bicycle ride. But the Australian's fast run moved him to the front at the 15-mile mark of the 26.2-mile run.

Mammoth falls to Boron, 50-6

October 10, 2010

The Huskies knew it was going to be tough. But who knew that it would be tough to the tune of 50-6 on Friday night?

The Huskies could not handle the Boron Bobcats on either side of the ball, and for the second straight week dropped a seriously lopsided contest.

One week earlier, in Bishop, the Huskies fell to the Broncos, 59-6.

In this one, neither quarterback Tyler Wormhoudt nor Huskies running back Coco Galvan could match the Bobocats' running back Reggie Heard, who dashed for 78 yards, nor quarterback Josh Core, who passed for 88 yards.

Huskies face "Bus Disadvantage" on the road at Boron

October 8, 2010

The Mammoth Huskies go on the road tonight in their first serious road game of the season.

The opponent, Boron (4-1), is one thing. But the biggest adjustment the Huskies (2-2) might face is the bus.

“You can’t put a kid on a bus and expect him to ride for five hours,” said Coach Tom Gault after a mid-week practice this week. “It’s especially hard for the junior varsity,” he said. “They have to ride the bus, jump off and be ready to play (at 4 o’clock).”

So how much is the “bus advantage?”

Tamarack XC Ski Center gets a new welcome hut

October 8, 2010

There was always a certain kind of charm to the old house trailer/rental hut at Mammoth’s Tamarack Cross Country Ski Center. Wasn’t there?

Um, no, actually, there wasn’t.

It was cramped for space, the stairs somehow always seemed whopperjawed in ice and snow, and not even the enduring charm of cross-country ski director Ueli Luthi could mitigate the scene.

This season, the house trailer is history except as a storage space. In its place is the old cabin from Sam’s Woods, and a new tent structure that is similar to the one at Little Eagle Lodge at Chair 15/Eagle Express.

Bishop Broncos bludgeon Mammoth, 59-6

October 2, 2010

The Friday Night Lights were not so kind to the Mammoth Huskies Friday night in Bishop. It was more like Friday Night Lights OUT.

The final was 59-6, Broncos, but it wasn't really that close.

The visiting Huskies (2-2) were inundated by eight Broncos touchdowns and another Bishop field goal. In the second half, the Broncos (4-0) scored 35 points without their superb starting quarterback, Chance Callahan, who was injured late in the second quarter and sat out the second half.

Ski Back Trail, take two

October 1, 2010

The Mammoth Mountain Ski Back Trail, at best a highly modified success last ski season and at worst a flub, is getting a makeover.

On the trail itself, workers under the direction of Operations Director Clifford Mann have been grading, erecting retaining walls and fixing the areas that made the trail nearly impossible for snowboarders and a problem for many skiers.

Having largely completed the work in the forest, Mann and his crew now are busy on the finishing touch – the long awaited pedestrian bridge across Forest Trail.

Husky gridders get help ... from ski team

October 1, 2010

Three games into the season and with their conference season looming, the Mammoth Huskies (2-1) have given themselves an infusion of athletic talent.

In a move that is unparalleled in Head Coach Tom Gault’s long tenure at the helm, six players walked on two weeks ago, asking for spots on the team.

All of them are from the Mammoth Mountain Ski Team, and some could see game action tonight when the Huskies visit their longtime rivals, the Bishop Broncos (3-0).

Gault, Huskies looking for a high point tonight at Bishop

October 1, 2010

The Mammoth Huskies travel to Bishop tonight, and that’s almost enough to put a glaze over Head Coach Tom Gault’s eyes.

“I’m not sure what to expect,” Gault said earlier this week, “but I’ll tell you that somebody asked me the other day, ‘You look back on the Bishop-Mammoth rivalry, what are the some of the high points you can mention?’

“And I told him, ‘Well, we’ve beaten them (the Broncos) three or four times in 30 years, so those are the high points.’”
