Auburn Riverside High School’s Kyra Brandt, swimming, is the Auburn Reporter’s Female Athlete of the Week.

Q: What is your favorite subject in school?

A: English, but there’s not really a subject I dislike.

Q: What other activities do you participate in?

A: I really enjoy my time in National Honor Society, and besides the high school swim team, I also swim for a club team. Combined, they eat up a lot of my time, but I also like to cook, garden, read, write and draw.

Q: Person who has helped you succeed the most?

A: I owe a lot of success to my parents for their continued unconditional love and support.

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

A: My favorite thing to do before the meet is the team cheer. There’s something magical about that many voices combined, echoing off the walls of the pool.

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

A: I’ve been really into “Ways To Go” by Grouplove. It’s my 500 and 30-minute swim song.

From the Sideline

“Kyra is a senior captain for the swim and dive team. Kyra is a four-year letterer on a team that has gone 27-0 and won four straight league titles.

She has qualified for districts in the 100 backstroke and 500 freestyle and for leagues in the 100 free, 200 free and 100 fly. Kyra is also a 4.0 student and National Merit semifinalist.” – Coach Patrick McKeehan
