Family caring for each other

I had a lot of fun attending the second annual Yosemite Shootout this past weekend. The tournament included 8 girls basketball teams, mostly from this area but one came from as far away as Colfax, north of Sacramento near Auburn.

Badger teams enjoy success

It has been an exciting fall season for Yosemite High sports with Badger volleyball, girls golf, and girls water polo all took home league titles and then some. The Badger football program while independent made it to the D-V semi-finals.

The Badger version of ‘The Drive’

For those who made the long trip to Bishop, and there were quite a few, it was so worth it. The sights of Yosemite and Tioga Pass made for a beautiful drive. Getting to Highway 395 was great, and on the way I summoned my inner Tony Krizan and hiked the Mono Pass Trail - great for the soul.

Emotional basketball season

The 2016-2017 Yosemite basketball season has to be one of the more emotional and tumultuous basketball seasons in recent memory. The boys season wrapped up with Yosemite losing their first round D-IV contest to eventual finalist Madera South 64-52 on Feb. 22. The team finished with a respectable 16-11 record and 7-3 in the North Sequoia League, good third place. It was the second straight playoff appearance for YHS.

Section rankings

This has been a strong year for individual basketball players, both boys and girls, at Minarets and Yosemite High. A number of mountain basketball players maintain significant rankings in the entire Central Section and not just their individual divisions.
