Christy Timbers Rife was a model student-athlete during her brilliant soccer career from 1996-99. When the speedy forward wasn’t scoring on the soccer field, she was getting it done in the classroom, graduating in 2000 with a Bachelor’s Degree in Business.

With her dedication and tireless work ethic, Rife set a standard for players in the young women’s soccer program. She started every game during her four-year career and still holds the school record for most games played with 81 career appearances. A two-time Team MVP, Rife found the net 53 times for the Seahawks and scored a career-best 19 goals during her junior campaign in 1998.

The Charlotte native, who still owns nine club records, was named to the NSCAA/adidas All-Southeast Team in 1998 and 1999 was honored by "Soccer Buzz" Magazine as well both years.

Outside the lines, Rife excelled, too. A four-time CAA Scholar-Athlete, she was a regular on the Dean’s List and was selected to the NSCAA’s Scholar-Athlete squad in 1998 and 1999. In her senior year, Rife won the coveted Chancellor’s Cup Award for Academic Excellence as the program’s top female student-athlete with a cumulative GPA of 3.651.

Rife has continued her love of soccer. She played professionally for the highly-regarded Charlotte Lady Eagles and still works with the club today.
