Program History

Riverside High School opened in the fall of 1999 as a result of the consolidation of DuPont High School and East Bank High School. Students from both of those former high school districts, Cedar Grove and Montgomery areas attend the school. Beginning in the fall of 2019 Riverside will incorporate students from the Fayette County School: Valley High School. This move will make Riverside High School the first inter-county high school in the state of West Virginia.

The program has 8 playoff appearances in class AAA including finishing runner up in 1999. The Warriors currently compete in the Mountain State Athletic Conference.

Riverside plays their home games at Warrior Stadium on the campus of Riverside High School. Opened for the 2000 season the opening game against the South Charleston Black Eagles was delayed for hours due to a lightning storm. The Warriors prevailed in overtime 13-6. Warrior Stadium wouldn't see a Riverside defeat until the 2002 AAA semifinal playoff matchup against the Parkersburg Big Red.
