The Riverbank varsity boys basketball team was successful in winning its Homecoming Game on Friday, and boys soccer held on for a home field win as well, but the winter sports season will be coming to a close soon on the RHS campus.
Senior nights, the final days of the season for recognizing seniors playing their last home games, were to begin this week.
Workouts for spring sports such as track and field, baseball and softball and boys volleyball and golf have already begun, and accompanying schedules have been released.
Here is a look at the action for the Bruins over the past week.
Varsity boys basketball split two games last week, but won the biggie, the Homecoming Game, last Friday.
On Tuesday, Jan. 22, they traveled to Hilmar, dropping a 67-52 loss to the Yellowjackets.
But on Jan. 25, they rocked the jam-packed Ray Fauria Gymnasium, holding on to defeat the visiting Cougars of Escalon, for the 67-64 Homecoming Game win. Following a 31-31 tie at the half, the fourth quarter seemed to come down to a battle of free throws and Robert Cunha sank some key shots from the charity stripe down the stretch to help secure the win.
This week, they were to host Ripon on Tuesday, Jan. 29 and travel to Hughson for a Thursday game, Jan. 31. They’ll finish their home season on Tuesday, Feb. 5 with Senior Night hosting Ripon Christian. They close out the TVL season on the road on Feb. 8 at Livingston.
