Liberty High School’s Vy Nguyen, golf, was selected as the Renton Reporter’s Female Athlete of the Week for March 29.

Q: What is your favorite subject in school?

A: ASB, DECA or math

Q: What other activities do you participate in?

A: Going on spontaneous adventures, tanning, thrifting, cooking healthy foods, driving, eating out, traveling, working with The First Tee and hanging out with my friends.

Q: Person who has helped you succeed the most?

A: My parents

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

A: I have a playlist I listen to that hypes me up and gets me excited. I like to then hit some balls up at the range and putt. Lastly, I make sure to use the bathroom and then kind of goof around and tell myself and others to just have fun!

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

A: “All We Need” by Odesza

From the Sideline

“I’d like to nominate Vy Nguyen. She has dramatically improved her scores from last year. Her first three match scores were 43, 41 and 40. She was in the top 15 at 2A state last year and has worked very hard on her game all summer/fall and winter and it is really paying off for her right now. As a senior and a captain she is a great example to the younger players on the team as well as the other seniors on the team.”

**Note: The print version wrongly noted Vy Nguyen as a tennis player. This post has been updated to note she plays for the Liberty golf team.
