TFS coaches name Indians of the Week




Tallulah Falls School coaches have selected their Indian athletes of the week for January 14-19. 



Seventh-grader Nelson Wilkinson of Cleveland was named an Indian of the Week by middle school swim coach Susan Nichols. “Nelson competed in two meets this week with great results,” Nichols said. “Nelson won two events on at the meet held Jan. 11 – the 100-yard individual medley (1:09.1) and the 50-yard butterfly. He finished second in the 50-yard backstroke and third in the freestyle. Nelson is now in the top three of the middle school legacy list in the 50-yard freestyle, 50-yard backstroke and 100-yard individual medley. He is a key member of the ‘A’ relay team serving as the anchor for the freestyle relay. At a Jan. 13 meet Nelson won the 50-yard freestyle and bettered his 100-yard individual medley time by almost one minute for a third-place finish.” 


Seventh-grader Layne Kafsky of Clarkesville was selected as an Indian of the Week by middle school swim coach Susan Nichols. “Layne was one of the top point-scoring swimmers at the end of the regular season,” Nichols said. “She helped the team place second against eight teams at our last meet on Friday night. Layne is a member of the ‘A’ relay team. She raced the 50-yard freestyle in a personal record time of 31.29, an 11 percent improvement from the start of the season. She also raced the individual medley, backstroke and butterfly events and achieved personal records in every event. Layne is a team player, supportive of her teammates and works with them to continuously improve.”


Senior Maja Trbovic of Serbia was named an Indian of the Week by varsity girls basketball coach Tom Tilley. “Maja is extremely dedicated and hard-working,” Tilley said. “Maja is from Belgrade, Serbia but gave up her holiday furlough to stay here in order to participate in workouts, practices and games. Maja was instrumental with her sound defense in our team winning three consecutive region games. She also shot a career high, going two-for-three from the three-point line while sealing a Lady Indian win over Providence Christian.”


Senior swimmer Luis Rangel de Luna of Mexico was named an Indian of the Week by coach Annette Cochran. “Luis’ performance at the two meets this week reflect his enthusiastic commitment to training,” Cochran said. “He raced the 50-yard freestyle for a 7 percent improvement and has shown an amazing 44 percent improvement over last year’s 200-freestyle time. Luis has made the effort to be at every practice despite the weather and other school functions on the schedule. He has demonstrated a strong and disciplined work ethic all season. As a senior, Luis is wrapping-up a fantastic ending to his high school swim career.”
