Knights Continue to Search

April 10, 2016

The Knights, who continue to search for their competitive nature, had an upclose and personal view of that side of some of the stronger teams in the state, including East St.Louis, Edwardsville, Springfield High and Southeast, at the Tom McBride Invitational at Springfield Southeast.
On a cold and clear afternoon the Knights were simply overwhelmed by the talent and volume of the opposition. Nonetheless,all was not dark, as the young Richwoods group did make better efforts at competing.
Of particular note were freshmen Rose Gentry and Tahja Wright.
Gentry moved past the 100; mark in the discus.Her throw of 101' 3' placed her 15th onthe Richwoods All Time Lists. Wright ran :64.60 in the 400 meter dash. Her converted time of :64.4 placed her at RHS #37.

Knights and Weather Remain Cold

April 6, 2016

The team remained nearly as cold as the weather which produced strong winds, brief hail and sleet and temperatures inthe 40's. the Knights finished the quadrangular meet in 3rd place.

Knights Fall in Outdoor Opener

March 31, 2016

Knight Freshman Miracle Brandscumb took the wins in both short sprints (:13.7 and :30.3). Soph Noah Worthy also was a double winner for Richwoods in taking the Discus (102' 2" - RHS All Time #14) and the Shotput (35' 6").
