PARADISE, Calif. -- Fresh off winning league MVP and a First Team All-League selection, Paradise High School's Nyah Attaway shifts her focus to the track.
"Just the discipline she has to move from one thing to the next and she doesn't lose a beat," said Sprinting Coach Sonny Johnstone. He adds, "...for her to get everything fit into a day that she does it just tells you how motivated she is and how concentrated she is on what she needs to get done."
Soccer has helped the Junior transition to track.
When it comes to sprints, Nyah says, "...if i didn't do soccer i'd be dead and done by the first couple, but soccer is what really keeps me in shape and keeps me going and make sure my legs don't get all tired."
Nyah performs well on the pitch, track, and in the classroom. This bobcat posts a 3.8 grade point average. Her work ethic is noted by most of her peers.
"I honestly don't know how she excels at everything she does I mean the time management factor is amazing," said Johnstone.
According Nyah, it takes accountability. "I just try to get my stuff done on time and if I need help, talk to my teachers and go in early, stay in late if I need to just get the help I need."
