After being stuck in the same district as Plant and Sickles, the Sharks now have a more favorable path to the playoffs in Class 7A, District 6, which includes Durant, Plant City and Newsome. The biggest loss for Riverview is at setter with the graduation of its two top assist leaders, Ariya Harris (333 assists) and Emily Trask (92 assists). The Sharks also have a new coach. Jordan Alberts, an assistant last season, was promoted. She replaces Jessie Thornton, who will still help out on the staff. There is a solid core of returners, including Hannah Bowers (100 kills last season), Reagan MacConomy (34 blocks) and Brooke Arnold (320 digs).
