Riley (Kenney) Ungaretti is the last person we want to see on the field or court at Butte High sporting events.

We would rather see her sitting on the sideline watching the action.

Ungaretti is an athletic trainer for the Bulldogs. She is part of the terrific St. James Sports Medicine team that provides athletic trainers to multiple high school, middle schools and colleges in Southwest Montana.

In today’s podcast, Riley discusses her duties and her training to prepare for any situation that might come up. She talks about her role in guiding injured athletes back to the playing field. She talks about the on-field situation involving Buffalo Bills safety Damar Hamilin a couple of weeks ago on Monday Night Football.

She talks about her deep ties to the Mining City on both sides of the family. Her grandmother is Butte radio legend Connie Kenney. Her father is Tom Kenney, a star for Butte Central’s 1984 State championship boys’ basketball team.
