Another graduated senior from Riverbank High is featured in our sports spotlight, as the upcoming start of the 2020-21 school year – albeit through distance learning – looms on the horizon. This week the spotlight shines on Jesus Flores, who played during two seasons this past year, both on the hardwood. He suited up for the Bruins for basketball in the winter and volleyball in spring.
Flores seemed to be right at home on the court, controlling the ball under, or at least near, the offensive basket. Shooting, passing and rebounding are all skills developed over a long career on Riverbank teams.
Also on the Ray Fauria Memorial Gymnasium hardwood court, Bruin varsity boys volleyball got underway this past spring with Flores taking part in the fairly new sport for boys, with just a few volleyball seasons so far in TVL action. Play was just getting warmed up when classes and sports were shut down along with everything else on or around school campuses mid-March. It was in response to the COVID-19 outbreak.
