Congratulations to Carlee Riggle for being our December Athlete of the Month. Carlee is a 6th grader at Powell Middle School and her favorite subject is Language Arts.
Carlee currently plays competitive soccer for Colorado United. In addition to soccer, Carlee also likes to go hiking, be outdoors and travel to go see family because she doesn’t have any in Colorado.
We asked Carlee how Matt and Team Speed have made a difference in her training and here’s what she said. “Matt and Team Speed have made me stronger, faster and mentally tougher. I train in ways that I’ve never trained before and I like to try new things and challenge myself. I like how I can talk to Matt about my sport and how he pumps me up for the games!”
We also asked her what she liked most about Team Speed and she responded, “I like to work hard, it makes me feel good when I finish a tough session because I know I accomplished something. I like that the trainers help on the specific sport that you play and how they prepare you for the regular season and tryouts.”
Just for fun, we also asked Carlee if she know’s where she’d like to go to college yet, if she knows what she wants to be when she grows up and to share with us any additional fun facts, here’s what she had to say. “Even though college is 7 years away I like Arizona State University and the University of California Los Angeles (UCLA) and I don’t know what I want to be yet! That’s good Carlee, keep your options open, you have plenty of time. Final fun facts about Carlee, she was born in Arizona and loves the desert. In fact, she just went hiking in Arizona over Thanksgiving.
Great Job, Carlee! Good luck on the soccer fields!
