Personal: Full name: Dominique Mazero. Parents: John and Joyce Mazero (one brother). Chose to attend Rice over Arizona, Northwestern, Baylor, Tulsa, Columbia and George Washington.
Head coach Nicky Adams said: "Dominque is an energizer bunny! Whatever decision she makes out on the field, she does it with everything she has. Dom does not take her foot off the gas pedal. Her work ethic in the middle of the field is going to be very valuable for us. She is always looking to get that ball and make something happen. The way she links with the forwards will provide us with a solid attack this upcoming season."
Dominique Mazero said: "Rice is the perfect combination of world class academics, and a friendly and fun atmosphere that will provide me the opportunity to be my best on so many levels. The soccer program is led by fantastic, innovative, soccer coaches who are taking it and will continue to take the team to new heights, and it would be an honor to be a part of that."
