Athletic Accomplishments

This 2021 grad is playing her high school volleyball at Alamo Heights H.S., competing in District 27-5A play in San Antonio. As a junior this past season en-route to her 1st Team All-District Honors, TSWA Honorable Mention All-State Honors and TGCA All-Star Alternate Selection, Riley was instrumental in AHHS's State Semi-Final finish, Region IV-5A Championship, Area Championship, Bi-District Championship, and District Championship. As a sophomore on the varsity unit, Riley was used at RS and was named "Mule of the Week" on 9/24/18 for the second time in her varsity career! A multi-position standout (OH, S, RS) and a member of the JV Team while only a freshman, Riley earned the "Queen of the Court" award multiple times for her consistent play on a set-by-set basis and also earned her first "Mule of the Week" award. Playing her club ball with the highly respected Ignite Volleyball Club, Riley is a dominant force at OH but also rotates around the back row when needed. In April 2018, Riley and her club team qualified for the USA Volleyball 2018 Girl's Junior National Championships in Detroit (June 26-29), which was the second time Riley appeared in the GJNC (also played in the 2015 GJNC in New Orleans). Most recently in Summer 2018, she was named the Outstanding Senior Camper at Camp Champions. At St. Luke's Episcopal School before entering AHHS, Riley was their 6-rotation OH/S and team leader, was named Team Captain & Team MVP in both 7th & 8th grade and was also named an ISAL All-Star.

Athletic Statistics

Standing 5'8"-135lbs as a junior, Riley combines her vocal style of leadership with her high volleyball IQ to have a bright high school and club career still ahead of herself.
