The No. 10 seed in the Division III playoffs seems to suit the Riverside Academy Rebels just fine. “Coming into this week, we knew we would be 9, 10, or small possibility of 11. At the 9 seed, you would have a good matchup with Episcopal but (in the opening round) if you get past them, then you have to go to Notre Dame. Overall, we thought the 10th seed was the better approach, if we could get there,... Keep Reading

Coming off an emotional 35-31 loss to Country Day after letting a 31-14 lead slip away, the Newman Greenies may or may not have had something to prove in last week’s game at Riverside Academy. Regardless of motivation, it all added up to a 41-41 District 9-2A loss for the Rebels. “I don’t know if Newman’s previous game had anything to do what. We don’t... Keep Reading
