A girl who is not only skilled at sports but intelligent as well.
Female athletes are generally portrayed as more competent than the typical male athlete. Possibly as a form of Positive Discrimination she's often portrayed as above average in terms of intelligence. Her primary interest will be sports. Either school will be an occasionally mentioned second or it might be what she takes up when she matures. She's the Girl Next Door who's easy to talk to or play with since there's no pressure to be anything more than Just Friends. If there's a contrast she's firmly the Tomboy in Tomboy and Girly Girl because of how independent she is. Unlike the Short Tank she has no interest at all in girlish trappings. Off the field she's more concerned with books than looks. This girl has a mind as active as her body and isn’t afraid to speak it so think twice before you embarrass her or make sexual advances on her. She will try to protect little ones especially her children. Unlike all examples of Genius Bruiser the Smart Sportsgirl isn't The Big Guy but just the Girl Next Door and unlike the Badass Bookworm she has a sporty look to her, not a smart one. Another trope of combining Brains and Brawn. Contrast Dumb Jock.
