L-R Doug Fox, Skylar Rubcic, Calvin Wetzel, Nate Brown, Brandon Tedrow, Lance Fisher, Elsa Antal, Kara Seebacher, Jackson Coyne (standing behind group hiding... Jeremy Spicher)

Congratulations to all our qualifiers!! Details from both days of competition have been shared below.  Special CONGRATULATIONS to Lance Fisher and Elsa Antal who brought home State Medals this year... It is a huge accomplishment just to qualify for this meet, but a real thrill to make the podium!! Here are photos of our medalists:

Lance Fisher earned a 7th place State medal in ShotPut with a throw of 52'-9.5''... (with
Coach Godsen, Coach Kotuby and Coach Dobish).

Elsa Antal earned a 5th place State medal in 100m Hurdles with a time of 15.27



We are happy to report that we have two State medalists returning to Riverside!! 

Here are some results from Saturday, in the order of the (again hot and humid) day:

Congratulations to Kara, who cleared the challenging starting height of 9'6" - where much of the field was eliminated - to finish 16th in the State!! 

Congratulations to Elsa, who made it through semi-finals this morning to advance to finals this afternoon .. where she earned a 5th place medal with her time of 15.27!!

Congratulations to Lance, who made it to finals in Shot Put today... where his throw of 52'-9.5" earned him a 7th place medal!! 

Congratulations to our boys 4x400 relay (Skylar, Calvin, Jackson, Nate)... they JUST missed the medal stand (by .02 sec) with a 9th place finish of 3:28.82!! 

THANK YOU to Coach Winfield, Coach Kotuby, Coach Dobish, Coach Evans, Coach Godsen and Coach Suillivan ... we appreciate the time and energy you give to take care of these athletes as they travel to/from this meet and help them prepare them to compete!! 


May 27 - FRIDAY... it was an oppressively HOT day here in Shippensburg... but our athletes did their best to keep cool as they waited to compete. 
Here is a quick Riverside update, in order of the day Friday:

Elsa competed in prelims of 100m Hurdles ... advanced to semi-finals to be held tomorrow! She got in a nice jump in long jump (17'5-1/4", a PR) but just missed making finals.

Jeremy and Calvin competed in 300m Hurdles... both ran great races only a little off their best times (impressive in this heat) but just missed advancing to finals tomorrow.  

Skylar, Calvin, Jackson & Nate were getting ready to run the 4x400 when the meet was called for weather... will have to wait until tomorrow afternoon in timed finals.

We have more athletes waiting for tomorrow - 

First thing (9:00 a.m.) Kara competes in pole vault... Around 12:30 Brandon will compete in pole vault and Lance will compete in Shot Put!

BEST OF LUCK tomorrow to all!!! 



Riverside had a great day at WPIAL Championships! We are so proud of our 20 athletes who competed! Even those who did not make the (top 8) medal stand gained the great experience of competing at this BIG meet with a highly competitive field of athletes.  Please join us in congratulating this talented group of Riverside athletes! We are excited to have 9 athletes heading to Shippensburg to compete next week in the PIAA Track & Field Championship meet!!

Food donations for Junior High Invitational - Wed. April 6

Would each family please bring a special food donation on Wed. for our Junior High Invitational... There are some suggestions below, but it really can by anything that would help make our snack shack extra special!  If you're not sure what to bring, here are some ideas:

  • DONUTS and BAGELS - we could use a few dozen donuts/pastries and some fresh bagels (and cream cheese) in the morning if it is easy for you to pick these up. 
  • FRUIT (Clementines, Bananas, Grapes, Strawberries, Apples, Oranges, Blueberries, etc - whole fruits, washed, in baggies if needed).
  • VEGGIES (carrots & celery, cut up in baggies... we have ranch dressing to serve with these).
  • HOT PREPARED FOOD - hot, home-made food is a huge seller!  Some suggestions are might be: meatball or sausage sandwiches, chili, soup, mac-n-cheese, etc.  If it something that can be kept warm in your crock pot, please send it - we will wash it and return it to you!  
  • COLD PREPARED FOOD - Pasta salad, fruit salad, other salads - we can sell by the bowl.

Thank you for your support!!


Reminder - Driving your athlete home from an Away Meet:

If you would like to take your athlete home with you (rather than letting him/her ride on the bus back to school) - you must complete and sign a Travel Release form and get it to Coach Kotuby or Coach Winfield.  You can find the form on the very LAST page (scroll down) of the Student Athlete Handbook, which can be found on the school website under Athletics, or... here is a link:


Welcome to our 2016 Season - Riverside Track & Field

Hello Parents and Athletes,

We are excited for the 2016 Riverside Track & Field Spring season to begin!  Many of our athletes have been conditioning through the winter, and optional Spring practices have already started… but mandatory practices begin March 7Please see below - under “Important Dates & Requirements” - to be sure your athlete is ready to start the season!


First – we wanted to share some general info from Track Boosters.  You can visit this website any time for updates and information.  Here we will have meet schedules, directions to away meets, meet results, and other information for families. 

You will also receive regular updates by email.  If you did not receive this info by email… it means we do not yet have your correct email address.  Please send an email to Sarah Antal at santal1221@gmail.com to provide your current email address if we missed you.  Thank you!!

 Parental support is essential to the success of our program, but we try to make it simple and affordable to participate in Track & Field.   Here is a summary of what we ask of you:


  • We are NOT asking for pop/water donations for the Snack Shack again this year.  We will purchase these items with profits from last year’s snack shack.  

  • Like last year - Each family is asked to donate $25 per family up front.  This check is due by Fri April 8.  CHECKS ONLY PLEASE - made out to Riverside Track Boosters.  Please write in the memo section of the check your athlete’s name so we can mark you as paid.


  • NEW THIS YEAR… Your volunteer participation earns you a refund of your $25 donation. Our fundraising focus is our snack shack!  For each athlete participating, a parent or family member is required to work one shift in the snack shack during one regular meet and one shift during our Beaver County Invititational or Junior High Invitational.  If you work both of these shifts… you will receive your $25 back! 

  • Like last year - We will ask for special food donations for the Invitational meets we host.  Our snack shack is our main source of fundraising – so we need to make sure we have a plentiful and profitable snack shack during these busy Invitational meets!

Important dates & requirements:

  • Optional practices began Tuesday Feb. 16 after school.  All athletes are welcome to participate, and the forms listed below are not yet required.


  • Mon March 7th - Mandatory Practices begin for Varsity and Middle School.   Practice runs from after school until approx. 4:30 for Varsity, usually until 4:00 for Middle School. ATHLETES MAY NOT PRACTICE UNTIL THEY TURN IN THEIR FORMS AND TRAINER FEE!


  • Mon March 7th - Deadline to turn in Physical, Student Athlete sign-off sheet, and $5 Trainer FeeAthletes may not practice beyond March 7 until these items are turned in!  You can find the forms on the school website under “Athletics” (PIAA Physical form and Student Athlete Hanbook Sign off Form). http://www.riverside.k12.pa.us/pages/Riverside_Beaver_CSD/Athletics

    • PIAA Physical form - Students who participated in another sport this school year only need to complete section 7, Re-certification by a Parent/Guardian, but those who have not must have a physical completed by a doctor.  Just a note, it is often easiest and cheapest to visit a MedExpress or a Convenient Care (like Heritage Valley in plaza of Giant Eagle) to have these physical forms completed. 


    • Please have students review the Student Athlete Handbook that is on the district’s website and sign and return the Student Athlete Sign-off Form. This form also must be turned in by March 7.

*NOTE* - For invitational meets, our coaches are limited in how many athletes they are allowed to enter in the meet.  In many events, they can only enter the top 2 or 3 athletes for each event on the team. If your son or daughter has been told what events they are competing in, they should expect to attend and participate.  Please make sure your athlete checks with their coach if they are uncertain if they are participating.  

Reminder - Driving your athlete home from an Away Meet:

If you would like to take your athlete home with you (rather than letting them ride on the bus) - you MUST complete and sign a Travel Release form and get it to Coach Kotuby or Coach Winfield.  You can find the form on the very LAST page (scroll down) of the Student Athlete Handbook, which can be found on the school website under Athletics, or... here:
