From the Sideline

The Athlete of the Week is sponsored by: Johnsons Home & Garden

Editor’s Note:

Each week, schools in our coverage area will select a male and female student athlete as its Athlete of the Week.

The athlete will complete a short five question Q &A and their coaches will send in a comment about them and their performance over the past week or season.

At the end of the school year, the community will get the opportunity to vote on the top male and female student athlete from the three schools the Reporter covers — Tahoma, Kentwood and Kentlake.

At the time of the Reporter’s press deadline, no Tahoma female sports had played a game/match yet.

Due to this Tahoma High School did not select a female Athlete of the Week to go alongside Max Repenn.

Student athletes from Kentwood High School will be selected and featured in next week’s edition of the Reporter.

For questions regarding our newly improved Athlete of the Week program, feel free to contact Reporter editor Sarah Brenden at or by phone at 425-336-4959.

If you’re interested in sponsoring the Athlete of the Week, contact Natalie Routh at or 253-656-5639.
