TFS coaches name Indians of the Week


Tallulah Falls School coaches have selected their Indian athletes of the week for October 16-21.


Seventh-grader Sammy Hartman of Clermont was named a TFS Indian of the Week by middle school swim coach Susan Nichols. “Sammy is a swimmer who is new to TFS,” Nichols said, “but she has shown dedication and determination this week. She has been early to practice, worked hard, and helped out wherever needed, from showing other swimmers how to perform a stroke to helping them with their starts. Sammy is a great asset to the girls' team this year.”


Eighth-grader Charlie Cody of Cornelia was selected as an Indian of the Week by middle school basketball coach Lowell Hamilton. “Charlie has shown a tremendous amount of intensity in practice the last two weeks,” Hamilton said. “His approach has laid the foundation and set the tone for what the team expects to accomplish this season.” 


Senior Ben Griswold of Demorest was named an Indian of the Week by varsity cross country coach Scott Neal. “Ben pursued the team’s season theme of ‘Stride for XCellence’ with special tenacity,” Neal said. “He ran a season-best 22:45 for the TFS farm college course in our annual Harrier Harvest to place in the top half of the JV race. He continued that same GREAT attitude and training throughout the week in preparation for the upcoming Area meet.  Ben clearly sees the light at the end of the tunnel as he finishes up his high school cross country career in stellar fashion.”


Sophomore Sophie Alexander of Sautee Nacoochee was selected as an Indian of the Week by cross country coach Scott Neal. “As a team leader for our 6th Annual Harrier Harvest, Sophie began to plan weeks ago to ensure that the meet, with 11 teams and nearly 300 runners, met our mission to host ‘GREAT’ events,” Neal said. “Sophie certainly rose to the challenge. She secured hay bales, baked goods for the award winners, and led the way to honor not just TFS seniors, but all seniors from every team. Sophie’s dedication to the success of the Harrier Harvest set a new standard.”
