Our recognition of Riverbank High’s athlete-graduates from the Class of 2020 continues for another week with a look at two-sport senior Nico Pulido.
Bruin Boys Soccer
Pulido was a stalwart on Riverbank’s varsity boys soccer squad, handling the ball often and taking several opportunities to score during the winter season on the RHS campus. He was a versatile player who loved to be in the mix, working hard to help his team achieve a victory.
Track and Field
Riverbank athletes were disappointed in the spring season this past year, getting very little time to participate in track and field events. The arrival of the coronavirus pandemic in mid-March, and resulting closures of schools and subsequent cancellation of the Trans-Valley League season, did away with track and field competition.
Bruin athletes, including Pulido, were able to compete with each other in the fun Track & Field Bruin Challenge, where they divide up into four squads for a friendly scrimmage. They were only able to get in one official home meet before the shutdown stopped everything.
