Cheyenne Consolo is a Senior at Riverside High School and the daughter of Tony and Andrea Consolo and granddaughter of Paul Panighetti and Susan Bacigalupi. She was born and lived briefly in San Jose California. Being the daughter of a Marine she found herself moving on a regular basis. In 2003 her family settled down in Greenville, South Carolina.

Cheyenne had played softball for years before arriving in Greenville. Deciding she wanted a change from softball, she enrolled in a lacrosse camp the summer between her 7th and 8th grade year. She instantly fell in love with the game and was a natural on defense. During her summers she played goalie and defense for several Upstate travel teams and won several tournaments. Her freshman year she tried out and made her high school's lacrosse team.

Cheyenne has been a member of Riverside High School Varsity Lacrosse for the past four years. After honing her skills under the expert instruction of Riverside's coaching staff: Deann Louis, Farrah Longboat Perkins, Rico Perkins, and Rob Colwell, she earned enough playing time as a freshman to receive her varsity letter. In subsequent years she would find herself a starting defender and captain of the two-time Regional Upstate Champions and two-time State Championship Runner-up Lady Warriors. Her Junior year she was nominated for the All-State team. She has 52 Ground Balls, 13 Draw Controls, and 9 Take-Aways her Senior year.

She has also participated in several church ministries An Angel's Attic, Lifeteen, Lifeband, and Vacation Bible School. At Tennessee Wesleyan College she plans on studying biology and chemistry.
