Lady Vikings’ softball plans rummage sale

Anyone with items to donate are asked to drop them off between 4-8 p.m. on Friday, Feb. 28. If anyone needs items picked up, call coach Jeff “Odie” Estep at (740) 643-2371 (school) or 643-2021 (home).



Due to a source error from individuals connected to River Valley High School, it was incorrectly reported that the Raiders’ 58-55 win over the Chesapeake Panthers last Friday was the team’s first win over the Panthers since the final game of the 1997-98 season.

River Valley also swept the season series from the Panthers during the 2006-07 basketball season.

River Valley is scheduled to play at Chesapeake this Friday in an Ohio Valley Conference game.
