If they really want to make her Speedy they should adress that trophy and the story behind it, but it could also just be a little easter egg for us CB fans.
Maybe at the beginning of the show they couldn't figure out a way of introducing Roy so they chose to just hint at "Speedy" (she's really just a living easter egg...I mean, c'mon...Thea (rhymes with Mia) Dearden (!) "Speedy" Queen: drug-addicted archery-contest-winner).

If they want to dig into that past as an archer a good way of mentioning it would be Ollie telling it to Shado while training on the island.
Imagine them training and Shado saying something like: "I see great potential." and Ollie goes: "Well maybe it runs in the family, you know, my sister took archery classes and won some contests. She's actually pretty good."
