TFS coaches name Indians of the Week


Tallulah Falls School coaches have selected their Indian athletes of the week for September 11 - 16. 

Middle School Girl

Sammy Hartman, a seventh grader from Clermont, has been named an Indian of the Week by middle school cross country coach Scott Neal.  “Sammy is quickly and significantly improving in cross country,” said Neal. “She placed 11th of 31 runners at the Eagle Invite, running the 3200-meter course in 15:14.92, a personal record.  Sammy pursues our ‘We stride for XCellence’ theme for the 2017 season.  We are proud of her tenacity and positive outlook.” 

Middle School Boy

Seventh Grader Tyler Farmer of Mt. Airy was also selected as a middle school Indian of the Week by middle school cross country coach Scott Neal.  “Despite the effects of Hurricane Irma on the week,” said Neal, “Tyler still trained and it showed at the Eagle Cross Country Invite at Lamar Murphy Park in Jefferson. Tyler knocked off 1:25 from last year on the same course. Highly competitive, Tyler led a pack of three-in-a-row TFS Indians by placing eleventh of 47 middle school harriers in 13:07 for the 3200-meter course.”


Varsity Girl

Senior Perry Gresham of Clarkesville was selected as an Indian of the Week by varsity cross country coach Scott Neal.  “A senior captain, Perry ran 22:34 to place seventh at the Eagle Invite on the Lamar Murphy Park course,” said coach Neal.  “Even during the outages of Hurricane Irma, Perry kept training because she is committed, is the team leader by example, and wants to end her senior cross country season leaving it all on the course.  Her leadership is GREAT, as is her running.” 

Varsity Boy

Senior Julian Murayama of Houston Texas was named an Indian of the Week by varsity soccer coach Jonathan Roberts. “Julian is playing soccer at his highest level to date,” said coach Roberts. “He has played for TFS since his middle school days and has been a dedicated and consistent contributor. This season, Julian has taken his game to a new level and is performing with a strength and confidence that matches his experience and tenure. He is leading his teammates from the center of the field in a fearless manner. He is super solid with the ball at his feet and gives everything he’s got in the tank to play at his best, undaunted by any level of competition.”
