Q&A with Tennis State Champion Sofie Kardonik


What sports do you play for Westwood ?


What is your best memory you have had playing for the Warriors?

State of course!  My favorite memory was when the team and I watched Kiana beat Plano West at Regionals to make State.  Being able to run onto the court and cheer with the whole team, knowing what we just accomplished was incredible.  Knowing it was a goal we worked on for four years was a great moment for my senior year!

 What is the best thing about being a Warrior Athlete?

The support from having a team on my side and from my coach.  Cooperative teachers that want the best for you and for the school is great.

What is your favorite thing about Westwood High School?

The teachers and the diversity of the student body.


What is your favorite class and teacher at Westwood?

Physics C with Mrs. Drake

What teams do you root for outside of the Warriors?

I don't really follow sports outside of Westwood High School.

What is the best advice someone has given you?

Hard work beats talent when talent fails to work hard.

What advice would you give to someone that wants to be a Warrior Athlete?

Don't take grades too seriously.  Remember that you are representing Westwood and to have fun with it. Make sure you enjoy high school.
