Rainy skies and wet fields continued to put a big damper on spring sports for Riverbank High School last week, with washouts common for baseball, softball, tennis, track and field, and golf.

However, with the winter season just concluded, a number of girls basketball players were honored by the Trans-Valley League.

Six Lady Bruins were named to the All-League TVL team following the end of the 2022-2023 season last week.

RHS sophomore Taylor Macias received recognition as Most Valuable Player, sharing with a player from Hughson. Junior Chancis Gamez was named Most Outstanding Player. Joining the pair on the All-League Team is senior Livi Fernandez. There were nine names on that list.

Also included under Honorable Mention were three Lady Bruins: Junior Rayne Tago, and sophomores Avah Luu and Alexis Felix, rounding out the Riverbank names on the list of league honors.

Honorable Mention’s list also included nine names, so Riverbank’s team accounted for a third of the awards on each list.

Macias also was named Honorable Mention on the Sac-Joaquin Division 4 All-Section team.
