SRRC Athlete of the Week
“On fire”, on a roll”, “in the zone”, all great figures of speech intended to describe that unique state of mind that every SRRC athlete strives to tap into. As all of our team members are dedicated to achieving greatness, we wanted to highlight specific accomplishments of drive, confidence, calm, focus and athletic achievement.
Take a moment and help us celebrate our athlete and help us recognize their achievements while we encourage all to follow their journey. Let us congratulate Emma Ayers and David Zink as our SRRC Athletes of the Week.
