The Riverview community gathered for a pep rally on Thursday night to show team spirit!

Both boys and girls teams fall short this year but next year looks promising.
Despite the win that Jeanette took over St. Joseph's to keep the Lady Raiders' playoff hopes alive, the girls team could not quite sail past St. Joseph's for a spot in post-season play.
