Coach Harry Burns has selected Mariah Rivas as player of the week. Mariah is the daughter of Denise and Henry
Rivas. Mariah is a 16 year old Junior at Fillmore High School. Mariah has been playing basketball for 9 years
and has been on Varsity since freshmen year. In the recently concluded Fillmore Tournament Mariah took over as the starting point guard because Rebecca Herrera had a sprained ankle and could not play until the last game
of the tournament. “Mariah did an excellent job filling in for Rebecca, and ran the offense flawlessly,” stated Coach Burns. For her strong effort she received All Tournament Honors. Mariah’s teammates affectionately call her
“Sharkbait” because she stands 5’3 inches tall and is the shortest member of the Lady Flashes basketball team.
Mariah says she loves being with her family of 3 sisters and 1 brother which give her lots of support. Next to her family Mariah says “Playing basketball is my number one passion.”
