Riverside had four soccer players to sign with colleges Wednesday.

Shane Berson signed with the University of Central Florida, Kendall Claxton with Winthrop University, Emma Harms with Newberry College and Isabelle Russell with Presbyterian College during a ceremony held in gymnasium with family, coaches, friends and classmates.

Shane Berson, goalkeeper, played varsity soccer for three years.

“He is the best penalty killer ever,” his coach Todd Lea said. “I knew if we could get teams in penalty kicks, we win.”

Lea said, “Berson has a lengthy reach, he covers the whole frame (of the goal).”

• Kendall Claxton signed with Winthrop University, “Because it was a good fit for me.”

Claxton said she will study exercise science and intends to go to medical school to become an orthopedist. Claxton said she tore an ACL her freshman season and it convinced her to pursue a career in medicine.

• Emma Harms signed with Newberry. She played forward all four years at Riverside. She was the team’s sophomore MVP and leading scorer.

• Isabelle Russell signed to play soccer at Presbyterian College
