During her senior year at Dunlap High School, Shawna proved not only her athletic ability, but her athletic versatility by excelling on the soccer field as well as the basketball and volleyball courts.
In a rare "double," Shawna was named Journal Star Soccer Player of the Year, and also Journal Star basketball Class A Player of the Year.
Neff became Dunlap's first all-state soccer player, in part by leading area players with 19 assists while scoring 22 goals. Shawna is currently a starter for the Air Force Academy Falcons basketball team. [written 2001]
