Riverview hosted its 1st Annual Comet Cheer Challenge on February 21st. Seven schools participated; Riverview, Bristol, Randall, Trevor-Wilmot, Wheatland, Union Grove, and Yorkville. Riverview did an AMAZING job! It was an extremely close competition with the score difference between 1st and 3rd place only a 3.5 points! That is some great cheerleading routines!!! Riverview received 3rd place, Randall came in 2nd, and Trevor-Wilmot placed 1st. The teams were all amazing on the mat! Congratulations to all the teams and their coaches on a job well done.
