Buc softballers ride the rollercoaster

It’s been a rollercoaster of a season so far for the Riverview softball team, which won its first four games of the season, dropped it next three and entered May with a 6-5 record.

The 2021 Bucs own wins over Taylor, Roosevelt, Jefferson, Flat Rock Woodhaven and Grosse Ile. They’ve lost to Carlson (twice), Huron, Woodhaven and Allen Park.

Riverview hit the month of May with a 3-1 Huron League record.

The Bucs have been on both sides of slugfests, beating Taylor 11-0, Wyandotte 17-6, Jefferson 9-1 and Grosse Ile 15-0, while losing 11-3 Allen Park and 12-2 to Woodhaven.

The regular season concludes June 3 with a home game against non-league Dearborn Heights Annapolis.

The Michigan High School Athletic Association state playoffs begin with pre-districts on June 1. The district tournament is June 4-5.

Riverview will play in a district at Trenton along with the host Trojans, Grosse Ile, Summit Academy and New Boston Huron.
