TFS coaches name Indians of the Week

 
 

Tallulah Falls School coaches have selected their Indian athletes of the week for August 21-26

MIDDLE SCHOOL GIRL

Seventh-grader Carol Kate Dunlap of Lakemont has been selected as a TFS Indian of the Week by middle school volleyball coach Tamara Griffis. “Carol is new to volleyball this season and she has been working hard to learn the new sport,” said coach Griffis. “She has been playing libero the past few matches and has done a great job learning the defensive position. She even served three aces in our recent match against Nantahala. Carol is a great asset to the team.”

MIDDLE SCHOOL BOY

Sixth-grader Austin Ball of Tiger was named an Indian of the Week by middle school soccer coach Travis Mullis. “Not only is Austin talented,” said coach Mullis, “but he is also respectful, a willing leader and an overall great team player. He scored a hat-trick in our last match.”

 

VARSITY GIRL

Senior Kayley Pugh of Clarkesville was selected as an Indian of the Week by volleyball head coach Brandy Corbett. “Kayley was one of our outstanding senior outside hitters who led us to victory last week against Habersham Central,” said Corbett. “Kayley took seriously a recent challenge to take risks, play aggressively, and play to win. She helped several huge kills at timely moments during the match helping us to a first in-season victory over the Lady Raiders.” 

VARSITY BOY

Junior Caleb Griffis of Martin was named an Indian of the Week by varsity cross country coach Scott Neal. “Caleb ran one of his best races at the Wesleyan Invite,” said Neal. “Running fourth among TFS runners throughout the race, Caleb never let teammate Zac Smith out of his sight. He fought through fatigue and kept moving up in the race until he passed his teammate at the finish line with a respectable 21:12.01 for the 5K.  It was a race in which Caleb determined a competitive strategy that kept him fueled mentally in order to preserve just enough energy to pass people at just the right time.”
