For just the second time in program history Murfreesboro Riverdale High advanced to the TSSAA State Tournament. Though Clarksville Northeast offed the Warriors 56-36 to open Riverdale’s Class AAA State Tournament adventure Elijah Cobb and the Riverdale Class of 2019 accomplished plenty in 2017-2018.
Riverdale lost eight games in 2017-2018, but look a little closer. Of the team’s eight losses six came at the hands of state tournament participants (Blackman x4, Bearden, Northeast).
Riverdale Head Coach Michael Voss guided RHS to a 13 more wins than the year prior. Defense really provided the backbone of success as the Warriors held opponents under 40 points seven different times.
Elijah Cobb (PrepHoopsTN #34) was certainly a gigantic part of the success. With his imposing wingspan and improving handles, the 6-foot-6 combo forward created countless problems for Riverdale foes.
