Hello, Riddle Irish! Season 3 is off to a roaring start. As a reminder, all athletes and spectators must wear a mask over their mouth and nose at events. OSAA has told us that if this protocol is not followed, spectators will not be allowed at the games or our season 3 will be cancelled. We do know how masks can be an inconvenience, but the sporting season is about having our kids able to finally play sports. Go, Irish!

Congratulations to the Days Creek/Riddle Football Team who finished the season with a 5-0 season this past Friday, April 9. Justin Jenks, a Riddle junior, said, “I’ve been friends with all these kids for years. Coming to play sports (at Days Creek) was a cool experience.” Our Riddle football players completing the season this year included seniors Peyton Miller and Hunter Buchanan, junior Justin Jenks, sophomore Tanner Dobeck, and freshman Tyler Dobeck. We now look forward to another combined effort for baseball. Days Creek baseball players are joining Riddle baseball players with our new Riddle Baseball Coach Larry Stephenson.
