Four female athletes feel the love at Riverview's signing day

At Riverview, in athletic director Kevin Massena’s view, it was the year of the female.

And on this February 14, four female athletes — Olivia Clare, Ebony Campbell, Jenna Cook and Taylor McCoy — signed their letters of intent.

“When we talk about athletics, those of us that played not only just played with our bodies, but we played with our hearts,” said principal Robert Heilmann. “And that’s what made these four ladies outstanding athletes.”

Campbell, the “Spiderman-like” goalkeeper for the soccer team, signed with Iowa Central while teammate Olivia Clare committed to USF. Cook, who started playing volleyball two years ago because a friend wanted company at a tryout, became the third volleyball player to sign when she inked her signature on a national letter of intent to Webber International, an NAIA school in Babson Park. And McCoy, the only athlete in the foursome still in season, committed to pitching and playing first base at Hampton.

In total, seven senior female athletes from Riverview committed to playing collegiate sports over the course of this school year. Pitcher Dylan Drawdy (USF) is the lone male.

“From the way that our teams look, I don’t think this is the last year of the female athlete,” Massena said. “It seems to be the coming thing.”
