The Cardinal

Lenna Atway, Senior Contributor

Lenna Atway is a 17 year old senior at Canfield High School.

She is a hard working student that values her schoolwork and extra curriculars.

If you have had the chance to meet Lenna and have a conversation with her, you would know that she is very kind-hearted, caring, and overall just a sweetheart.

What some people may not expect from Lenna is the sport she pursues. Atway has a passion for soccer and plays defense.

Contrasting her behavior outside of soccer, Lenna is aggressive on the field and loves the adrenalin rush she encounters after a victory. She has been playing since she was 7 years old.

Atway said, “I always played for the Boardman rec league and finally switched to a Canfield team when I was 13, then I started playing competitively.”

Before her career at Canfield, Lenna did 4 years of club soccer at TCSC.

She plans on discontinuing soccer after high school and said, “I would still enjoy playing in the future, just not on a competitive level. Possibly joining an intramurals team just to throw around some soccer balls and have a good time.”

Lenna has created super strong bonds with her teammates over the years she has done soccer. The friendships Lenna made and her passion for the sport have motivated her to love being on the field for the numerous years she has done it.

Atway concluded, “The girls I play soccer with are more than just my teammates, they are lifelong friends that I will carry throughout my life.”
