Riverbank High athletes managed to avoid rainy skies and wet fields last week, starting their 2019 spring seasons on Thursday and Friday.
Most of the activity came on Friday, both home and away.
After getting most of the previous week rained out, Riverbank varsity ballplayers hosted Patterson High on Friday, Feb. 22, falling 11-3 to the Tigers. The JV team suffered a similar fate, downed 14-1 after four innings.
The teams were to play Mountain House here on Monday in non-league action, then go to Summerville High in Tuolumne on Wednesday and to Johansen High in Modesto on Friday. All this, however, depends on the weather.
Lady Bruin Softball
On Friday, Feb. 22, Riverbank travelled to Davis High School in Modesto, where they were downed 11-9 by the Lady Spartans. They were to host Big Valley Christian, weather permitting, on Monday this week, followed by a game here against Cesar Chavez High School from Stockton.
They’re set to hit the road on Friday, to Mariposa High School, then go to Denair next Monday, March 4.
The Riverbank boy linksters are hoping to get in a practice round at home on the Jack Tone Golf Course in Ripon this week, if the weather permits.
The RHS netters were hoping to get in a non-league match at Ripon Christian on Tuesday, but their big event is to be the Riverbank Doubles Tournament they’re slated to host Thursday and all day Friday. And again, it all depends on the rain.
