Tyler Graves, a 17 year old senior at Calvert High School, made it official on April 24, 2014, by signing to play soccer for West Virginia University Institute of Technology. She was a member of the championship Calvert High Girls Basketball Team, Lady Cavaliers.

Tyler started playing soccer at age 4 with her family. Her dad, John Graves, was a soccer coach and involved the whole family in the sport. Tyler was also a member of the Calvert High championship girls’ basketball team “Lady Cavaliers” for four years as a forward and shooter. And she ran track for four years in the 400 meters as well as the long jump and triple jump.

Tyler decided on attending West Virginia University Institute of Technology, a four year college located in Montgomery County, West Virginia, after a friend, who attends the college, filled her in and she checked it out. She decided her major will be nursing and plans to return to Calvert County after graduation, where she has lived her entire life.

Tyler said she could not be more excited and thanked everyone who has been there for her all these years.

      WVU Tech is actually the Golden Bears, not Mountaineers.
