Riverdale begins its quest for a third straight TSSAA girls Class AAA state championship today at 10 a.m. at Murphy Center, taking on Ravenwood in the opening round.
Riverdale is 75-1 in its last 76 games.
The Lady Warriors advanced to the state tournament with a 78-38 beatdown of East Hamilton in the Sectional.
Riverdale could become the seventh straight Girls State champion from Murfreesboro, sandwiching two-year title runs in 2017-2016 and 2012-2013 around Blackman titles in 2014 and 2015.
A win today would send the Lady Warriors to Friday’s semifinals with the championship game Saturday.
