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 Rebecca Mize and Tag Carr as our SRRC Athletes of the Week.
Coach Diann commends Rebecca for a "solid win in the Whitney Central Division race. Rebecca has worked really hard to make some changes to her turn shape and add aggression to her race runs. Her first run in the Whitney was even better than she has been training.”
