At the beginning of basketball season each year family, friend and alumni gather at Riverdale to “Meet the Rebels” teams for the season. They met last Friday and had a great time, won some great prizes, and were treated to outstanding basketball.
The school posted, “Meet the Rebels was a huge success! Thank you to EVERYONE who helped in anyway.
The hall leading into the gym was lined with prize after prize. Each grade from kindergarten through 12thgrade put up a prize package for a raffle. Everyone bought tickets and put them into bags by each prize. The prize drawings were held during the basketball games.
Student athletes played each other. There were girls and boys teams, decked out in red or white. There was a lot on the line, and It was a nail biter until the very end, but the Red team won 39-37 over the White team! The red team got a bar-b-que lunch Monday. The White team was served the traditional Beanee Weenies!!
The Louisiana School for Math, Science and the Arts came to play. Two great games and the Rebels and Lady Rebels were victorious.
