From the Sideline

“Riley has managed to find a balance in her schedule with school, work, club gymnastics and being a captain on her high school team. She consistently places in the top 10 at ever meet, recently as third top all-around. She is a motivated mentor to other girls on her team. She is a tough competitor. She faces each challenge I’ve given her with vigor and determination. She recovers from set backs quickly and does not let them define her.”
