The High School All-American Game is an annual matchup between teams of top prospects from the East and West regions of the United States. Riggins earned a spot on the East Team.

After the pandemic caused the postponement of the 2020 event – which was originally scheduled to be played in Orlando, Fla. in December – the game this May is being held as a makeup.

Riggins has committed to join the Georgetown University track and soccer programs in Fall 2021. She was named to the WPIAL Section 2 AA All-Section Finest 15 and to the the Class AA All-WPIAL team in November 2020.
