Hazen High School’s Kylie Doan, swimming, was chosen as the Renton Reporter’s Athlete of the Week for the week of Nov. 9.
Q: What was your favorite subject in school?
A: My favorite subject is math. The class I am taking is really hard but I enjoy it for the most part.
Q: What other activities/hobbies do you enjoy?
A: I enjoy hanging out with my friends, baking and just relaxing and watching Netflix.
Q: Person who has helped you succeed the most?
A: My parents have always been my biggest supporters and have always pushed me to my best. They have put in a lot of dedication for me, my swimming, schooling and everything in life. Their support means everything to me and it pushed me to be my best.
Q: Do you have a pre-game ritual or post-game tradition, and what is it?
A: Before big championships, I usually always have a big pasta meal to fuel up heading into a meet. And for after championships, I tend to eat a little unhealthier as a treat for myself.
Q: Song you currently can’t get enough of?
A: I love listening to a good pump-up rap song. Really any song that maeks me want to jump and scream to is usually the one I listen to a lot.
From the sideline:
Junior Kylie Doan is Hazen’s Swim and Dive Team’s most valuable swimmer, scoring over half of Hazen’s points at the post season league and district meets. Kylie is an incredibly consistent competitor and an invaluable asset to our relays. At the WCD meet this weekend, she placed fifth in the 100 breast and sixth in the 50 free and qualified to advance to state in both events. Kylie has a goal of breaking Hazen’s 100 breast record, and her coaches can’t wait to see her do it!
