Lady Bruin varsity volleyball players began their 2022 season with a non-league match with Johansen High School from Modesto.

Called the Foundation Game, the action kicks off the campaign with a fundraiser like those held all across the Trans-Valley League, benefitting the league’s programs.

Riverbank played hard but ultimately ended on the short side of a 3-2 final score. They won the first and third sets, 25-19 and 25-21, but fell in sets two and four, then lost the fifth and deciding set to Johansen, 5-15.

RHS also hosted the Lady Hawks of Central Valley High School in Ceres on Tuesday, Aug. 23, coming out on top, with a three-game sweep in non-league play.

Riverbank is scheduled to travel to Orestimba High in Newman on Aug. 31, then host Turlock Christian High School on Thursday, Sept. 1 in non-league action.

After Riverbank football began a couple of weeks ago on the home field, the Bruins took on the Hawks at Delhi High School this past Friday, Aug. 26, where they fell, 36-0. The Bruins are scheduled to travel to Denair this week for a non-league contest.
