Let the games begin – again.   Bishop England and Philip Simmons high schools are ready to resume their winter sports programs after shutting down basketball and wrestling teams because of the COVID-19 pandemic, which continues to rage out of control around the world.   “We are practicing...
The Bishop England boys’ basketball team has spent limited time on the court so far during the 2020-21 season because of the COVID-19 pandemic. You might have to wonder if the Battling Bishops will be more like the “Rusty Bishops.”    The Bishops owned a 4-1 record heading into Tuesday night’...
