Tallulah Falls School coaches have selected their Indian athletes of the month for December.

MIDDLE SCHOOL GIRL

Eighth-grader Karis Tatum of Mt. Airy has been named an Indian of the Month for December by middle school swim coach Susan Nichols. “Karis tied for high point scoring in December swim meets with first, second and third place finishes,” Nichols said. “She is a member of the ‘A’ relay team. Karis is a versatile swimmer and has posted the season’s fastest times in the 100-yard freestyle, 50-yard butterfly and 100-yard individual medley. Her focus at practice sets an example for her teammates.” 

MIDDLE SCHOOL BOY

Eighth-grader Gabe Keene of Demorest was selected as an Indian of the Month by middle school boys basketball coach Lowell Hamilton. “Gabe had led TFS middle school boys basketball in every statistical category for the first half of our season,” Hamilton said. “He has shown himself to be far more than just a very good basketball player and he has also matured as a young man. He has developed into a fantastic leader during games and practices by directing and helping his teammates. He has had the privilege of playing several games with our JV team.” 


VARSITY GIRL

Junior Nyah William of Cornelia was named an Indian of the Month by varsity girls basketball coach Tom Tilley. “On Dec. 15 Nyah broke the 1,000 point scoring mark in a game against region rival Hebron Christian Academy,” Tilley said. “This has only been accomplished by two other players in TFS girls basketball history. Nyah is also the youngest player to reach this mark and is averaging 17.8 points per game.” 

 

VARSITY BOY

Sophomore John Nichols of Clarkesville was selected as an Indian of the Month by varsity swim coach Annette Cochran. “John sets a GREAT leadership example in both practice and meets,” Cochran said. “John had GHSA qualifying times for three individual events: 50-yard freestyle, 100-yard freestyle and 100-yard butterfly. His times are in the top three on the TFS Legacy list for freestyle. John is also a member of state qualifying relay teams for the 200-yard medley relay, 200-yard freestyle and 400-yard freestyle relays. He sets a balanced tone between working hard in the pool and positive team interactions. John also helps organize the team with roles and responsibilities for our home-themed meets.”
