TFS coaches name Indians of the Week





Eighth-grader Harry Uwakwe of Nigeria was selected as an Indian of the Week by middle school tennis coach Lisa Wilcox. “Harry and his partner Tate Shaw played a tremendous match against White County,” said Wilcox. “The two had previously lost to this team and were losing this match 1-5 before Harry started amazing his partner, coach and his opponents with his stokes.  He started hitting winners right and left. He and Tate came back to win 8-6. Harry is one of the most coachable athletes I have ever had.”


Eighth-grader Lucy Alexander of Sautee-Nacoochee was named an Indian of the Week by middle school cross country coach Scott Neal. “Lucy placed fourth of 40 runners at the TFS Cookies ‘n Quotes meet,” said Neal. “She finished with a time of 14:43.36 on the 3K TFS farm course, then came back two days later and ran the 1.9 mile Crows Lake Challenge in 14:49.75 to place 31st of 149 harriers. Lucy leads consistently, trains for success, and sets team goals above personal ambition.” 



Junior Mali Danavall was selected as an Indian of the Week by varsity volleyball coach Brandy Corbett. “After an injured JV player was unable to return to play,” said Corbett, “Mali was asked if she would be willing to help by being a part of both teams for the next few weeks. She accepted our request and had an outstanding week of play on both teams. She is a great example of ‘team before self.’ She assertively, yet gracefully, encouraged and helped to lead our JV team, and her play improved exponentially each day.”



Freshman Chathan Clouatre was named an Indian of the Week by varsity cross country coach Scott Neal. “Chathan ran the 5K TFS farm course in 21:52 at our annual Cookies n’ Quotes cross-country festival on Tuesday,” said Neal. “He then came back on Saturday on the same course and finished in 20:21 at the Heroes Cross Country Invite. His time for the course puts him at No. 9 on the farm course Legacy List. Chathan’s race strategy and a tenacious mindset inspired his teammates as an example of what can be done when you place team success above one’s own discomfort.”
