Riverside senior tennis player Andrew Sheridan has been through the wars over his career.
Not too many of them have resulted in team victories for the Vikings, but that has not affected how Sheridan approaches his matches.
As the Vikings’ No. 1 singles player all four years, he has gotten through some tough times with high hopes. Being realistic about the schedule he has faced, always drawing the opposing school’s best player, makes him realize that his win-loss record may not be an accurate assessment of how he’s really doing.
The Moosic Spring Sports Parade was held last weekend. Among those marching were the Moosic Little League, Riverside varsity baseball and softball and the Moosic Red Wings. Following the parade, Moosic Little League held its opening day ceremonies.

After a long year and some self-doubt, Riverside first baseman Danielle Powell was determined to make her senior year one to remember.
So far she has, as the Lady Vikes have been in the race for the Lackawanna Division III title as the season reaches its midpoint.
She can thank her youngest sister, Brianna, for being a part of Danielle’s preparation for her rejuvenated senior season.
“I’ve been playing well, hitting well,” Powell said. “It feels good to be hitting well because last year I wasn’t able to hit; I had the designated player hitting in my spot, so I was the flex player, in the outfield. So to be able to come into this season and hit well means a lot to me because I worked really hard at it.”
