WARREN, Pa. – Warren Area High School senior Riley Childress is taking her game to the next level.

After her Lady Dragon basketball career ends, a new chapter will begin as Childress committed to Division II Roberts Wesleyan and head coach Kevin Clifford on Sunday.

The Redhawks are located in Rochester, N.Y.

Childress made the announcement on her Twitter page.

“This wouldn’t have been accomplished without the endless support from coach Lisa or any of the other assistants, my amazing teammates, my AAU coach Dan, and my trainer Maceo,” Childress said in her Tweet.

See her full statement here:

Childress has been the starting point guard for Warren the last three seasons and is coming off a campaign in which she averaged 14.0 ppg., 5.2 apg., 4 rpg. and 3 spg. She is poised to surpass the 1,000-career point mark early in her senior season and is widely regarded as one of the premier defensive players in District 10.

She has also been one of the driving forces behind the Lady Dragons two most recent District 10 championships in 2019 and 2021 under the direction of head coach Lisa LaVan.

Childress becomes the second player in her class to announce a college commitment, as teammate Emma Ruhlman committed to Division II Hillsdale College on Aug. 30.
