The Tower

Sofia Nevala is a Senior at John Adams High School and is very excited to be back contributing to The Tower this year as the Sports Editor. Sofia is looking forward to casting a bigger spotlight on local sports, including those at Adams and Notre Dame, through her work at The Tower. She is also looking forward to continuing to write, what some may consider, too many articles about the NHL. 

A lacrosse player for the South Bend Bears girls’ team, she also enjoys reading, traveling, going to concerts and watching various sports. Sofia can be found at almost every one of Notre Dame’s home hockey games or at the Ice Box watching her brother play for Adams. Along with that, she is up at 9 a.m. every Saturday in the fall watching her favorite show “College GameDay” on ESPN. 

Some of her greatest accomplishments include: growing her hockey jersey collection to sixteen, helping start the South Bend Bears High School girls lacrosse team, and learning to play piano at the age of four along with violin in the first grade. She loves all music and is constantly, to the annoyance of her brother, singing along to the radio in the car. She learned to read music during her years of taking piano and violin lessons, which was a great help as she taught herself to play ukulele during COVID. She is an unapologetic country music fan though she gets much criticism for it from her friends. She believes there aren’t many things better than blasting country music in the car with the windows down. 

After high school, Sofia hopes to move on to college and study Kinesiology or Movement Science; something that will lead her on the Physical Therapy track…one of the only health majors that has little involvement with blood! Her ultimate goal is to get a Doctorate in Physical Therapy, which would give her an opportunity to work in professional sports, preferably in a big city. Between now and getting her Doctorate, Sofia will continue to grow her hockey jersey collection, try to convince her parents that she needs to go to another concert, and receive way too many ESPN notifications on her phone. Sofia is excited for her final year with The Tower and hopes that she can continue to share her love of sports with the Adams community.
