Riverside soccer wasn’t supposed to be here.

This was supposed to be a rebuilding year for the three-time defending state champs. The Warriors graduated 12 seniors last year. They became one of the youngest teams in Region 2 4-A. Riverside was written off by many.

In all of Blue Ridge head coach Travis Henson’s years in the business, he’s never coached a longer game than the Tigers’ district championship this week.

Riverside baseball junior Brody Koss is making the most of his return from injury.

Koss sprained his ankle on April 5 against Wade Hampton. He wasn't cleared to play until nearly a month later. By the time Koss returned on May 1, Riverside was already into the playoffs — one loss away from being eliminated.

Greer baseball will host Riverside on May 7 at 6:30 p.m. in a Class 4-A elimination game.
