Tayra Melendez of The Rivers School ’12, committed to URI
First the Boys Ski Team cleans up at NEPSACs with a gold. Then the Boys Hockey Team claims its first Eberhart Trophy since ’85.
Now this weekend, the Girls Hockey Team and both Boys and Girls Basketball Teams are/were up for a championship.
The Girls Hockey Team won a thriller in 6OTs vs. rival Southfield, but then fell short in the semi finals on Saturday.
Now the Boys and Girls Basketball teams are in the finals hoping to give Rivers its 3rd and 4th Winter Championships this year.
A 4 out of 6 championship success rate with scholar athletes is something you don’t find outside of prep school.
Good Luck Rivers!

PROVIDENCE, R.I. — Thirty of the country’s top prep school basketball teams, up to 100 college coaches on hand to evaluate prospects, and several NBA scouts will gather for the 14th annual National Prep School Invitational.
Held at Rhode Island College from Thursday, February 2 through Sunday, February 5, the nation’s elite exposure event will once again have its top games broadcasted on COX Sports.
With an upwards of 50 players impressively already committed to colleges, the event’s main goal is to provide a springboard for many more to join that group.
The featured young talent competing ranges all the way from the traditional powers of the New England Prep School Athletic Conference to as far as the Canarias Basketball Academy of the Canary Islands.
Highlighting the field is last year’s National Prep Championship Tournament winner St. Thomas More (CT) and NEPSAC champion Maine Central Institute (ME). Previous titleholders Brewster Academy (NH), Bridgton Academy (ME), Notre Dame Prep (MA) and Tilton School (NH) return as well.
Check out this sequence of fouls. I’m surprised it didn’t evolve into a brawl. That #34 was really thugging it up. He looked like he was a nose tackle who found himself on the basketball court.
To make it even funnier, check out the school’s athletic code of conduct:
A great majority of the players involved in the brawl were prep school alumni. Goes to show that preps are tougher than you think! Check out the bro bleeding his face off. 34 should be done for the season.
