Academic All-Star: Sira Toure - SWX Right Now-Sports for Spokane, CdA, Tri-Cities, WA

Academic All-Star: Sira Toure

Posted: Updated:

This week's all star is a Kamiakin Brave who barely ever spends time on campus. Sira Toure. She's full-time at CBC's running start program getting her AA degree. But that's just pushed her to work harder academically and athletically.

"Been having calc 4 during the nighttime, 5-7, that's when our practices are, been having to deal with that. Not practicing with the team, had to find time after class, 8-9 to go shoot around and make sure I'm ready for games," said Toure.

Her success hasn't gone unnoticed: she's signed to play basketball for Weber State University next year at college.

"Just went there and I just fell in love with it. Atmosphere, coaching was nice, loved the girls, how they are. Nice atmosphere to be around," said Toure.

And at Weber, she hopes to use her math skills to keep pushing herself.

"Liked math when I was little, always got along with math better," said Toure.
