Riverhawks Soar to New Heights

Posted: Updated:

The first year school in Chiawana finds itself in the top five.

The Lady Riverhawks basketball team is an impressive 11-1 and fifth in the state, and that's with all underclassmen.    The news caught some team members by surprise.    

"Sweet.  Yes!"

"Oh were fifth.  SWEET!"

Head coach Steve Davis added, "It's unique I guess to start a new school like this, and have the program we have.  It's the kids that we have that came here."

Junior point guard Melanie Valdez said, "Before we were they don't know anything... We can do whatever we want you know.  But now we have to work on the things that we aren't particularly good at."
