2015 NIAA Northern Region Division 1 Baseball, Carson High vs. Damonte Ranch High, April 23, 2015

Wow, what a game tonight at Carson High!  I think this one had a little of everything (including rain…) and for the Carson fans, the Senators took a win away from what was the only undefeated team in the North State!  The Senators won tonight 7-6 in the top of the 7th inning with Damonte leaving runners on base…

2015 NIAA Northern Region Division 1 Baseball, Carson High vs. Bishop Manogue, April 6, 2015

The Bishop Manogue Miners visited Carson High tonight for the second game of the series… The Miners were quite aggressive with their base running tonight and took advantage of most every opportunity to put up a run they had.  The Miners took the win at Carson tonight 10-3.

Here are a few shots from the night…

Not sure why exactly yet, I just like this shot…Carson Senator Kyle Krebs Manogue’s Middle Infield, Lucas Howard at second…Bishop Manogue Miner Lucas Howard

2015 NIAA Northern Region Division 1 Baseball, Bishop Manogue vs. Carson High, April 4, 2015

Boy, what a game! Hits, runs, home runs, stolen bases and even an ejection!  What a baseball game!  Carson visited Bishop Manogue today for the first of their home and away series with the Miners and walked away with a win, 7-6.  The Senators jumped out in front in the second inning 4-1 after their coach was ejected from the game…  Pretty shockingly (at least to me…) the NIAA scheduled an umpire with a previous ejection of a Carson High Coach at the end of last season… it quickly looked very reminiscent of that evening last spring…. if you’re going to be an umpire you need to have patience and pretty thick skin…

The game went down the the 7th inning and Manogue was battling but Carson relief pitcher, Senior Brandon Allen was able to battle through and get the last outs needed to give Carson the win.  The battle continues on Monday at 6:00 PM at Carson High.  Hope to see you out there!

2015 NIAA Northern Region Division 1 Championships

The Nevada Interscholastic Activities Association (The NIAA…) held the Northern Nevada Regional Championships at Carson High this week…

On the girls side, both League Champions faced off tonight, Reno vs. Bishop Manogue.  Reno didn’t seem to be able to match up well with Manogue’s pace and press and fell behind early and Manogue never looked back and cruised to a Regional Championship!

Congratulation Girls!  Good Luck in Vegas next week!150221_4639

This is how Manogue dealt with Mallory McGwire… shoot over her before she can approach for the block… I’d guess Mallory holds some shot block record if someone was keeping track, she’s a wicked shot block force in the middle!


LOVE the crowd!  What a great atmosphere tonight!150221_4556The boys game tipped off 45 minutes later than scheduled… multiple factors… First was the TV crew… the whole world revolves around TV you know… :)  The second and probably larger factor… there were so many people inside that they had to start turning people away that were waiting in line outside… the place was PACKED!!

The two teams that tied for first in the Sierra League were back on the floor tonight, Carson got the 1st place nod due to the tie break but Galena came in with something to prove and very quickly showed that.  Galena’s outside shooting game early in the first quarter was probably the nail in the coffin for Carson.  Galena jumped out to and early lead and Carson tried to claw back but the deficit was too great and couldn’t manage.  Galena will be headed to Vegas next week for the State Championships.

Congratulations and good luck in Vegas boys!

Shots like these helped Galena to the Championship!  Look at the crowd!!  Truly Awesome!150221_4714 150221_4718
