Leander ISD is proud to announce Leander High School’s Riley Cotton as the LISD Student-Athlete of the Week.

Riley is a senior captain of the Lady Lion volleyball team. Riley was selected as Most Valuable Player for the team and as a member of the District 13-6A All-District first team. For her hard work in the classroom, she was named Academic All-District and Academic All-State.

“Riley really became the kind of player this year I knew should could be since she walked in the gym as a freshman,” said Leander Head Volleyball Coach Ashley Atkinson. “She performed for this team not only with stats, but also with a fantastic work ethic and leadership on the floor”.

In addition to volleyball, Riley is a member of Fellowship of Christian Athletes, National Honor Society, Spanish National Honor Society, Future Health Professionals Organization, Rotary Club and is ranked in the top of her class academically.

Riley’s hard work and dedication on the court and in the classroom are just a few of the reasons she has been named Leander ISD’s Student-Athlete of the Week.
