Seton High School has one of the city's top goalkeepers in soccer star Riley Tarvin, who has more than 300 career saves. She last season helped the Saints win a first-ever regional championship and a first-ever Ohio state championship, finishing with a 20-3-1 overall record.
Riley is coming off a great junior campaign when, in 24 games played, she allowed 29 goals against with 161 saves (second in the GGCL) and seven shutouts (which led the GGCL.) As a team, Seton allowed a mere 1.3 goals per game during its championship season. For her efforts, Riley was named Seton's MVP for the year.
Strong defense is evident this season, too, for the GGCL champs as Riley has 82 saves in net and has helped the Saints pitch 11 shutouts. She was named first-team all-GGCL this season.
Riley will play soccer at the next level at Stetson University in DeLand, Florida.
Riley also played basketball for the Saints her sophomore year. A super student who has earned first honors every quarter at Seton, she is active in community service. Her favorite athlete is Carly Lloyd, favorite entertainer and most-like-to-meet is Taylor Swift, favorite book is Daisy Jones and the Six, and favorite movie is Pitch Perfect. Riley also plays soccer for the Kings Hammer Soccer Club.
COACH'S QUOTE – "Riley is one of the best keepers in the city! Her ability to position herself on the field, communicate to her defensive players, and distribute the ball, really sets her apart. Great leader on and off the field!"
— John Volker, Varsity Soccer Coach.
