(Festus) Riley Cappozzo was one of the most dynamic girls’ soccer players in the state.

And not only did that help the St. Pius Lancers reach a state championship game.

It also earned the junior a spot on the Regional Radio Dream Team.

Cappozzo paced the Class 1 runners-up with 19 goals and 14 assists.

She says she’s grateful that other coaches notice how much of a well-rounded player she’s become.

Cappozzo was all-conference, all-district and a first-team all-state selection.

She says being a cerebral player is what allows her to not only have individual success, but also the ultimate goal of team success.

But Cappozzo didn’t do it alone.

Cappozzo was one of 5 St. Pius players to earn all-state honors, including senior College Flanagan, who was named the Class 1 offensive co-player of the year, and sophomore Emily Vatterott, who was the state defensive player of the year.
