Kayla Foremski named scholar athlete of the month
Kayla Foremski, a senior at Issaquah High School, has been selected as the Red Robin Scholar Athlete of the Month by the Issaquah Booster Club and Red Robin Restaurant.
Laura Halter, Issaquah swim and dive coach, nominated Foremski, writing, “Kayla is one of the main reasons the swim team at IHS is the current KingCo sportsmanship award winner. She has always demonstrated great sportsmanship towards all of the other teams, their coaches and all officials. She is currently the captain of the team and has been doing a fabulous job all season. She is especially skilled in her communication with her team and coaches. She is often found watching and cheering on all of her teammates at the meets. She leads by example in the pool by taking her workouts very seriously and making sure everyone is working together.”
Foremski qualified for three events at the district meet. She dropped time in all her events, and her 200 freestyle relay team finished first overall.
Foremski also participates in club lacrosse. She joined the lacrosse team her freshman year and plays defense and midfield.
In addition to excelling in athletics, Foremski has earned a 3.86 grade point average, which earned her a Scholar Athlete Award all four years. She is in the National Honor Society and served on the ASB Class Council. As an active community volunteer, Foremski also volunteers as a leader at Little Bit Therapeutic Riding Center.
