Not really unless you EV train it to its full capacity and give it a Choice Scarf, otherwise you're better off getting a new one, even still, things will outspeed you more that wouldn't if you had higher IVs and such. Anything above 25-ish IVs in the desired stat should be around good enough for competitive play if you can't RNG (although 30-31 is preferred), while 15 would be okay for in-game.
