While Riverbank High School’s girls volleyball squad worked and played hard over the spring break recently, when classes resumed, it was softball that was busy this past week.
Lady Bruin Softball
On Tuesday, April 13, the Lady Huskies of Hughson came to town, with Riverbank’s girls fighting hard but eventually taking a tough 8-7 loss. But the next day, they got even, with an extra-inning victory, and two runs in the eighth to take a 6-4 win.
The Lady Bruins are on the road to Orestimba for an April 21 contest and will host Mariposa on Friday, April 23. Their final game will also be at home, on April 30, hosting Denair.
RHS volleyball played at Mariposa County High last Monday, April 12, and again at Waterford on Wednesday, but scores were not reported by press time.
They were to host Orestimba on Monday this week, then close out the abbreviated season on the road Wednesday, April 21.
Spring Sports On Tap
The spring schedule will bring plenty of action, and most teams are already practicing. Games played will be both sports from in and outside their normal seasons.
In addition to regulars, baseball and co-ed track and field, both usual spring sports, some normally ‘winter’ season sports will be played, as well.
Trak and field kicks off with the German Fernandez Distance event on Friday, April 23. Baseball starts on Tuesday, April 27, on the road in Hughson.
The California Interscholastic Federation (CIF) a few years ago moved both boys and girls soccer to the winter season, but this year, because of COVID, they’ll be playing starting the first week of May. Both boys and girls basketball, normally in winter, will begin play the first week of May, as well.
