TFS coaches name Indians of the Week


Tallulah Falls School coaches have selected their Indian athletes of the week for March 27 - April 1.


Sophomore Aaron Hughes of Demorest was named a TFS Indian of the Week by track & field coach Scott Neal. “Aaron has been out of track & field for the last six weeks due to significant injuries sustained in a mountain biking incident,” Neal said.  “He was cleared to participate on Monday and ran near a personal record in the 800 meters. He is ranked No. 10 in that event and No. 14 after his 1600 meter race.  Aaron’s quick return and inspiring performances can be attributed to his focus and determination, his belief that he could return mentally stronger and his desire to help his team succeed.”


Varsity soccer coach Jane Shoemaker selected sophomore Miyu Sugiura of Japan as an Indian of the Week. “Miyu has a positive attitude and is encouraging to others,” Shoemaker said. “She is also dedicated, responsible and gives everything on the field. She is a tremendous asset to our team.”


Eighth grader Olivia Rogowski of Martin was named an Indian of the Week by track & field coach Scott Neal. “Olivia won the 400 meters at the Athens Academy meet the day after winning the high jump to help TFS win the first Tri State conference meet,” Neal said. “Olivia runs on both relays and has improved significantly over the course of the season.”  


Middle school tennis coach Lisa Wilcox named eighth grader Baylee MacBeth as an Indian of the Week. “Baylee defeated Rabun Gap-Nacoochee School’s No. 1 singles player 8-6,” Wilcox said. “Through many long points, this young man battled and did not give in. Baylee started off at No. 2 singles for our Tri State matches and had to step up to the No. 1 spot due to an injury that occurred to another player. He is very coach-able and is eager to learn.”
