After some very lean years, the Riverside girls basketball team finished the 2019-20 season over the .500 mark at 14-13. This was the Rebels first winning season in 11 years and between 2014 and 2017, the program won just 5 games. But the fortunes changed with freshman Caroline Schlattmann who earned all-state status, averaging 11 points and 7 rebounds per game. At 5-8, she was a game-changer for the Rebels but the team also received a productive season from Victory Buck who averaged 12 points a game and was named all-conference.

At the 2A state tournament. Riverside lost their 1st round game to Moorcroft 50-36 as Schlattmann threw in 14 points along with 8 rebounds. It was a tough shooting day for the Rebels in that contest start to finish. In the consolation round, Riverside was eliminated by Southeast 49-33 as Kelby Vandeest had 21 points and rang the three bell five times in the game.

Looking ahead, Schlattmann is a budding star to build around and Kelby Vandeest was the only senior on the last year's team. Things could be looking up for the Rebels.
