Molly Keaveney’s senior year as a basketball player at Greens Farms Academy ended prematurely when a stress fracture cost her the final season of her career.

Her future on the hardwood remains bright and untapped however, as Keaveney has announced she will take her talents to St. Lawrence University in the fall.

Keaveney was one of 12 Dragon student-athletes feted on Wednesday during the school’s annual Spring College Commitment ceremony held inside the Coyle Gym. Those 12 coupled with eight Dragons who committed during the National Letter of Intent signing period in the fall brings the school’s total to 20 different GFA athletes playing in college come fall.

“I chose Saint Lawrence because when I visited, the team and the coaches were beyond welcoming,” Keaveney said. “I admired the team culture as the players managed to have fun, while still seriously competing. The school had a very positive and supportive environment, with a great balance of academics and athletics.”

As a Dragons player, Keaveney has been a part of a program that posted 53 wins over the past three seasons. (She lost officially lost her freshman year due to COVID protocols).

In just over two full seasons, though, Keaveney scored more than 600 points for the Dragons.

In her junior year, in a win over Ethel Walker, Keaveney broke GFA’s 3-point shooting record by making 10 in the game en route to a career-high 32 points.

“We are so excited for Molly and for her to continue her career at St. Lawrence I think it is a great fit athletically and academically,” said GFA head coach Maria Conlon, herself a former player at the University of Connecticut. “St Lawrence is getting a great shooter.”
