Sophomore, Clovis North Broncos, Volleyball, Basketball and Track
Congratulation to Peyton Bitter for winning the 2021 Central Section High Jump!
Peyton is the ultimate multi-sport athlete and is great to see because many CUSD teams don’t push for multi sports athletes. Peyton is soooo good at Volleyball Track and also Basketball. It’s hard to figure out what is her best sports is because she is fantastic with them all.
She broke two Clovis North Broncos school records this year.
- Rebounds in a single game – 19 (Old record was 18). She did this against the Buchanan Bears where she had 18 points, 19 rebounds, 5 assists and 3 blocked shots.
- High Jump where she tied the record in Arcadia with a jump of 5′ 5″. This was her 3 meet of the season and first ever invitational. She was in the open heat where she cleared 5’5″ and won the open. She went back to the meet later in the evening for the invitational athletes and her 5’5″ would have also won the invitational. She has since cleared 5’7″ which is a school record. Her mark of 5′ 7″ is leading the Central Section and is tied for 2nd in the State in the High Jump.
She also travels with Rage Volleyball Club out of Ripon California. She plays on the 16U Greg team and they play in the open division. She has been able this year to travel to Orlando, Omaha, Reno (twice) and Vegas (twice). They have qualified for Junior Nationals in Las Vegas and will play from July 1st – 5th.
What’s crazy is Peyton is only going to get better!

A star is born out in Easton!
When the playoffs start, every coach hopes that a player and/or team gets hot at the right time and that is what has happened to the Washington Union Panthers baseball team and sophomore pitcher Kyle Plaza. The Panthers played a tough schedule that got them ready for the playoffs.
Kyle got the big win in the Division 5 Section Championship game at Minarets. In the playoffs, Kyle threw 12 innings and went 2-0 with 12 strikeouts. At the plate. Kyle was impossible to get out, going 7-9.
Kyle loves the great game of baseball, and the Panthers have their ace for 2 more years. During the season, Kyle beat the red-hot Kerman Lions in a big win for the Panthers baseball team.
In the classroom, Kyle gets it done with a 4.0 GPA
