Dominican College Basketball
“When I went to one of their basketball games, it felt like a home environment, ” Rivera said. “I went to an accepted students luncheon and I saw what they had to offer academically, and it was really good; and what they have to offer athletically is even better.”
Rivera will leave North Rockland as one of the program’s most accomplished players. A 1, 000-point scorer for her four-year varsity career, Rivera led the Red Raiders to their first County Center berth since 2006-07.
Along with classmate Olivia Burden, the duo is the third-highest scoring duo in program history.
Rivera was considering two programs that already have Rockland alums committed or already playing for them – St. Thomas Aquinas College and Southern Connecticut State. Former teammate Alex Bertolino and Albertus Magnus alum Ryan Doherty already play for the Spartans, and Clarkstown North senior Erin Ryder is committed to SCSU for next season.
“I’m going to work twice as hard as I did in high school, ” said Rivera, who hopes to improve her guard skills at the next level. “I’m looking forward to meeting the girls.”
