Well, we knew the Mammoth Huskies weren't going to go undefeated, but still, last weekend hurt.
Coming off an opening-game victory against L.A. Baptist, the Huskies on Friday night were whomped by the visiting Mission College Prep of San Luis Obispo, 27-0. On the bright side, sort of, the varsity did a bit better than the junior varsity, which lost, 32-0.

Fall Century Ride
Riding against fierce headwinds on one section of the High Sierra Fall Century route and battling equipment problems along the way, the kids of Mammoth Mountain Ski Team all completed the High Sierra Fall Century bike ride last Saturday.
"We had a great, great time," said one of the teams' coaches, Kevin Francis. "One of them had a flat tire but got help from a couple of women riders, and one of them bonked, but we got some food into him and he finished the ride."
Having little sense of the difference between, say, the â€śPistolâ€ť offense of the Nevada Wolf Pack and the Pro Set of Fresno State, Mammoth photographer Brandon Russell has found himself in a most improbable spot.
That would be the College Football Hall of Fame.
â€śCrazy, huh?â€ť said the 28-year-old Russell, a University of Nevada-Reno graduate and a noted action sports photographer.
Russell said he really doesnâ€™t know the intricacies of the sport he photographs so well, but last season, Nevada hit gold, er, silver, and Russell was there to capture it.
Smoky days likely
to continue; all
for rest of season
Eastern Sierra residents have been hit hard in the past few weeks by smoke from a big fire on the Westside, and itâ€™s not over yet.
Although cooler days accompanied the latest storm system that moved into the Sierra beginning Wednesday, the same storm system came with strong winds blowing west from the San Joaquin Valley.
