During her four seasons with Christopher Newport, Talotta scored nine goals (three each season) and had 25 assists, the third most in program history. She took 112 shots and played in 66 matches, all starts.

Talotta was a first-team all-conference selection in 2019 and made second team in 2021. The 2020 season was not played because of the pandemic.

In 2021, Christopher Newport won the Division III national championship and Talotta made the all-national-tournament team. 

Talotta’s younger sister, Katy Tallota, was a sophomore midfielder for the Division I Davidson College women’s soccer team this fall. Also a Yorktown graduate, Katy Tallota played in 17 games for Davidson, had three assists and took six shots.

Both of the sisters played for state-championship Yorktown soccer teams during their high-school careers, Emily in 2017 and Katy in 2019.
