Kentwood High School’s Annelise Hed, swim, was selected as the Covington Maple Valley Reporter’s Female Athlete of the Week for Nov. 9.

Q: What is your favorite subject in school?

A: Psychology — I find the brain interesting and how we all have the same parts but we think and act so independently.

Q: What other activities do you participate in?

A: I love going to Seattle and Alki Beach with my family to visit my sister. I also like going on spontaneous lunch dates with my friends after school.

Q: Person who has helped you succeed the most?

A: The people who have helped me succeed the most are my teachers at my old high school, Kent Mountain View Academy. Every one of them helped me become more confident.

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

A: Before a meet I always go to Jamba Juice and get an Orange Dream Machine smoothie.

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

A: “Dang!,” by Mac Miller and Anderson Paak

From the Sideline

“Annelise is consistently a hard worker, cheers on her teammates and provides leadership by her work ethic, inclusiveness and positive attitude. She finished in the top six at the North Puget Sound League in two individual events. She also got fifth in the 50 free and 100 breast stroke and was critical in helping our 200 free relay place second.”
