River City Spring Sports Roundup

During the spring season, River City High School sports teams all did exceptionally well. This year was River City’s first season in the Tri-County Conference, and their powerful entrance is not to be taken lightly. River City also takes pride in their student athletes with 72% of them with a 3.0 GPA or higher.

Girls Soccer

            This season Varsity Girls Soccer went 18-4 and made history as the first River City Girls Soccer team to become league champions. The team’s offense was strong all season with 96 goals scored overall. Varsity captain Jaylen Crim won all-league offensive MVP as well as her and 5 other players making the all-league team.

Varsity Coach Kamal Singh said, “The best part of this season was being able to accomplish what no other team has been able to accomplish, and the way we dominated our opponents and worked together as a team.”

Boys Tennis

            Boys Tennis was undefeated TCC champions this season, winning all 12 of their matches in league. The team continued into the semifinals of the section playoffs, after beating Central Valley 8-1 in quarterfinals, they finally lost to Manteca 5-4 in a very close match. Next season the team’s goal is to go undefeated in league again and get even farther in section playoffs.

“Two best moments, defeating both Yuba City and Pioneer 9 to 0 the second time around in the TCC after barely beating them both 5 to 4 the first time,” said coach Dave Brooks.

Baseball

This season Varsity Baseball went 15-12-1. They were third place in league and took a tough first round loss to El Camino in the playoffs. During the season 170 runs were scored followed by 231 hits. River City threw a total of 136 strikeouts. The player with the most strikeouts was Austin Roberts with 62.

“I personally think we should have gotten first place because we beat both the teams ahead of us in a best out of 3 series. My most memorable moment was when Austin Roberts pitched a shutout and then hit a homerun which was the only run scored,” said Coach Clint Brill.

Softball

            This season Varsity Softball had a record of 20 wins and seven losses. 158 runs were scored in total, 39 of those runs were scored in the playoffs. They hit a total of six homeruns on the season. The team took second place in league. They came in fourth place in the San Joaquin North Section playoffs. This was their first year playing up in division three.  Even though they were a in a division 3 conference they played in division 1 playoffs due to the size of the school.

Varsity Coach Javier Martinez, said, “My most memorable moment was the Davis tournament that took place in the second week of March. We beat Woodland for the tournament championship. To be honest the whole season was memorable because it was the first time RC has been in the playoffs in 10 years.”

Swim

            This year the swim team was dominant in the pool, able to go undefeated at all of their meets. At the TCC champions meet both girls and boys won league titles. One highlight among the many team accomplishments was Senior Bret Bachmeier, who was able to go under a minute in the 100 meter backstroke, accomplishing a personal goal he has been chasing for 4 years.

This season completes a spectacular two year run for the boy’s team. “Between this year and the last, the boy’s team has now broken every school record. I look forward to the girls breaking more records next year,” said head coach Ryan Mosley.

Track

            This season also brought success for the Raiders on the track. Individual athletes were league champions in 7 different events and 4 others contributed to a league championship in the 4×100 Relay. Ciera Smith, Aliyah Smith, Cecilia Turner, and Aliyah Brantley made a new school record by completing the 4×100 relay in 51.09 seconds.

“I’m proud of how much of a better runner I have become. I used to be number 11 in my 100 and now I’m n

oneer 9 to 0 the second time around in the TCC after barely beating them both 5 to 4 the first time,” said coach Dave Brooks.
