By Ray Hamill — The secret’s getting out.

Anyone who has been following local high school sports for the past few years knows all about Kira Morris and the success she has enjoyed with the Eureka Loggers, but now she’s getting a lot of respect from well beyond the Redwood Curtain.

This week, Morris was named SBLive’s 2021-22 North Coast Section Athlete of the Year, an award that encompasses all 155 schools in the NCS.

According to a story announcing the award and written by Lance Smith, which is well worth a read, the Eureka standout “had a three-sport junior year for the books.”

She certainly enjoyed plenty of success and played a pivotal role on three Eureka championship teams, in soccer, basketball and softball.

And she will only continue to get better.

In the story, Morris tells us which is her favorite sport and how she’s hoping to follow in a family tradition by playing at the collegiate level.

She also talks about how COVID affected her high school sports career as it has for so many prep athletes.

She is now back on the soccer field and hoping to replicate last year’s NCS championship along with her teammates, and, of course, looking to close out her high school career with a bang as a senior.

In all three sports, of course.
