Lady Pilots Win District Tourney
The River Jr high Lady Pilots basketball team won the Switzerland of Ohio school district’s 2014 tournament hosted by Powhatan Elementary on Saturday, February 22nd. This group of 13 seventh graders completed the season by not only participating in the 7th grade games, but also serving as the 8th grade team. Their record for the 8th grade season was 15-0, beating Beallsville in the Championship game. What is most special about this year, is fact that for the first time ever, the team was comprised of not only girls from River Elementary, but Powhatan Elementary as well. The team is coached by Crystal Longwell and Kelly Dierkes.
