Bluejacket Athlete of the Week - June 10, 2021

From the coach: Aiyana Knight- Aiyana is an outstanding athlete. I am so impressed with her drive and work ethic.  She is such a fun athlete to watch compete and I am confident she will break a record or two this season.

Favorite thing about sports:  My favorite thing about sports is definitely the competitiveness and the adrenaline rush.  I also love the bonds I make with teammates and coaches.

Person who has influenced you: My parents are my biggest influence.  They push me to the be best I can be and always tell me to do whatever makes me happy.  

How do you prepare for a game or meet?: I usually make sure I have a good fulfilling breakfast.  I also make sure I stay hydrated.  After that, I watch clips of the meet before so I can go into the meet with a plan.  

Highlight of athletic career: Making it to the state meet my freshman year for the 400 M relay and the 800 M relay.  This was most definitely the highlight of my career.

Future goals: Eventually,  I will have to decide whether or not I want to pursue basketball or track in college, but know that I plan to attend college and major in psychology.
