Our next Senior Spotlight features multi-sport athlete Alyvia “Lyv” Schiavone. Alyvia is the daughter of Brandi and John Schiavone. She has two brothers: Darien, Carbondale Area Class of 2019, and John, a fifth grade student in the elementary school. Alyvia has excelled in both soccer and basketball in her time here at the high school.
Alyvia, who sported #17, joined the Carbondale Area Girls Varsity Soccer teams as an incoming freshman. Alyvia’s aggressiveness on the field, combined with her positive attitude and athletic ability, made her a key offensive player. Alyvia quickly claimed a starting position shuffling between the midfield and forward position. Alyvia always played the game aggressively, demonstrating her soccer talent and skills on the field whether she played center or on a wing. Alyvia’s exceptional soccer footwork was demonstrated game after game through countless assists. On average Alyvia contributed to 30% of the Shots on Goal per game and 14% of the team’s overall goals.
Alyvia, who wears #12 for the Chargerettes Basketball Team, is a four-year varsity member and three-year starter. She has 249 career points and averaged 5.7 points per game as a junior. Notably, she led the team with twenty 3-pointers during her junior campaign. She looks to have a strong senior season to close out a respectable career. She is back in action tonight with her Chargerette teammates at Holy Cross.
Alyvia is also involved in numerous academic clubs here at the high school. She is a state qualifier in Future Business Leaders of America (FBLA), a two-time regional qualifier, a two-year treasurer, and is a four-year member.
