DECADE’S MULTI-SPORT ATHLETES: #7 MIA SAN NICOLAS

The Top 10 multi-sport athletes of the past decade.

By Robert Balajadia

With high school sports officially wrapped up for 2020, we’ve decided to count down the top 10 male and female multi-sport high school athletes of the past decade (2010-2020). This list centers around athletes who were not only dominant in one sport, but were multi-faceted stars every time they took the field/court.

Following the direction of a list created by GSPN’s Patrick Lujan four years ago on the best multi-sport athletes ever on Guam, ‘like sports’ (like cross country and track & field) will be ranked the same.

We continue the countdown with ladies #7 Mia San Nicolas of the Academy Cougars.

San Nicolas came into high school having a clean slate of basketball championships from Bishop, which built up the hype around how the six-foot freshman would perform. She responded by helping the Cougars win a title in just her first year to continue her winning ways.

Mia would run into adversity later that year after tearing her ACL in soccer, which forced her to miss her entire sophomore season.

She came back strong in 2017 by winning the league MVP and was a point away from winning a title that same year. San Nicolas would continue to dominate the league in 2018 by winning back-to-back MVPs which was highlighted by winning the Kanto Classic in her final high school basketball game.

Mia would also return to the soccer field in her senior season where she locked in a 1st Team selection while leading the Cougars in scoring. She would lead a charge in the playoffs to get to the Cougars to the title game, netting two goals in a close loss to the ND Royals.

Mia committed to play basketball for the Wenatchee Valley College Knights, an NWAC team in Washington, post high school and will continue playing for Guam’s National Team.

Mia’s high school accolades

Basketball – 1x Champion, 2x MVP, 2x 1st Team All-Island, 1x 2nd Team All-Island, 1x Kanto Classic Champion, 1x Player of the Tournament, 1x Hardeman Champion Manila, 1x All-Tournament Team Hardeman
Soccer – 1x First Team All-Island, 1x 2nd Team All-Island, 2nd Place Finish

Mia’s reaction to making the list

“I am so humbled! It is an amazing honor to be named along with other great female high school multi-sport athletes. I believe that we share a bond that allowed us to compete at an elite level, which brought the best out of us, our teams, our coaches, and our schools. I give credit to my parents, coaches, teammates for my athletic accomplishments. They were always there to provide guidance, instruction, and support not just for the sport but also in preparing me for life.”
