Lady Warriors Slay Trojans


by Wes Talley

The Lady Warriors of Riverdale High School took the court at MTSU’s Murphy Center to the tune of their large hometown audience chanting Jack White’s “Seven Nation Army.” Not only was the crowd pumped up, but so were the Lady Warriors as they prepared to tip off against the Morristown West Trojans. From the opening whistle Riverdale’s superior athleticism was on display as the Lady Warriors sprinted past West’s defense again and again.

Riverdale lead after every quarter, but in the second and third the lady Trojans fought hard and tightened the game up. Lady Warriors head coach Randy Coffman said after the game he “expected them to make a run, a team doesn’t get to this game unless they’re really good.” In the fourth Riverdale turned it back on and finished off their opponent with a score of 70 to 55. The Lady Warriors will face Memphis Central on Friday, March 11th at 11:30am in the Murphy Center.
