The first Riverbank track and field meet is in the books, with a three-way match against Amador and Big Valley Christian high schools competing at Angelo Novi Stadium last week.

Both boys and girls events were recorded, with many both at the varsity level and open on Tuesday, March 8, setting personal records for this early part of the season. And the Trans-Valley League Relays were set for this week at Hughson High School.

The Stanislaus County Meet is coming up on Friday, in Riverbank on the all-weather track.

Here is a wrap of other recent action for the Bruin spring squads.


Bruin Baseball

Riverbank varsity baseball hosted Orestimba High from Newman, falling 21-8 to the Warriors, on Wednesday, March 9, then traveled to Summerville High in Tuolumne County to take an 8-3 loss from the Bears, both non-league contests.

This week, the Bruins are to travel to Livingston on March 16, then host them on Friday, facing the Wolves twice in the same week.


Lady Bruin Softball

Riverbank girls took a loss on the road at Johansen High School in Modesto on Tuesday, March 8, falling 9-5, in a non-league game.

They were to host three games this week, against Downey on Monday, Big Valley Christian on Tuesday, both of Modesto, and Central Valley High of Ceres in a Thursday, March 17 contest, all non-league matchups.


Bruin Volleyball

Boys volleyball fell 3-0 to Ripon Christian High School on Wednesday, March 9, and was to host Hilmar’s Yellowjackets on Monday this week, and then traveling to Waterford for a March 16 contest.


Boys Golf

The Bruin linksters are to tee off for the 2022 league season against Escalon’s Cougars at the Oakdale Golf and Country Club on Thursday, March 17.

On Thursday next week, Riverbank is to host its only ‘home’ match of the season, but they play at La Contenta Golf Course in Valley Springs as it is another of the only 19-hole courses nearby.
