Hazen High School’s Madison Kem, girls soccer was selected as the Renton Reporter’s Female Athlete of the Week for Sept. 14.

Q: What is your favorite subject in school?

A: My favorite subject in school is PE. I always like to be active and it’s super fun to do different physical activities with your school friends.

Q: What other activities do you participate in?

A: My favorite things all revolve around soccer. The best thing to do is go with my older brother in the summer time and kick the ball around. We do small drills, juggling and shooting. It’s super fun but also bonding time with my brother.

Q: Person who has helped you succeed the most?

A: Every soccer coach I had inspires me in a different way. They all leave a special mark on me as a soccer player but most importantly as a person. My parents also help me in motivating me for each practice and game.

Q: Do you have a pre- or post-game tradition? What is it?

A: Before a game I always have to listen to pump up music. Also, when I’m putting on my cleats I visualize what my goals are for the game.

Q: Song you currently can’t get enough of?

A: The song that pumps me up a lot before games is “Lose Yourself” by Eminem. I also currently like his new album Kamikaze.

From the Sideline

“Senior Madison Kem had two goals and two assists for Hazen last week. Her assist against Liberty gave Hazen a draw at Liberty after six straight losses. She had two goals, including the game winner, and an assist at Wenatchee Eastmont in Hazen’s win Saturday. A two-year captain for Hazen Soccer, Madison will attend Eastern Washington as a student athlete next fall.”
