TFS coaches name Indians of the Week


Tallulah Falls School coaches have selected their Indian athletes of the week for January 15-20.


Seventh-grader Charis Anderson of Clarkesville was selected as an Indian of the Week by middle school girls basketball coach Rick Hammock. “Despite limited opportunities for game action, Charis has maintained a terrific work ethic and optimistic attitude,” Hammock said. “Charis has shown great improvement in basic basketball skills and competes well when called upon. She excels in the classroom and brings a wonderful humble spirit to practices and games alike.” 


Seventh-grader Dan Griswold of Demorest was named an Indian of the Week by middle school basketball coach Scott Neal. “Dan was the overwhelming offensive leader of the middle school boys ‘B’ squad this season,” Neal said.  “He averaged 10.2 points per game while also assisting others and playing solid defense. Dan is a selfless team-oriented player whose ambidexterity helped the team recently come from behind from a 1-15 score to a 26-17 victory.”



Senior Sophie Burke of Chesterton, Indiana was named an Indian of the Week by varsity swim coach Annette Cochran. “Sophie swam her last high school meet this past Saturday,” Cochran said. “She was unable to train the first part of the season due to an injury but has since devoted herself to improving, even participating in double practices. Sophie has a GREAT attitude and is always positive. She serves as the girls’ team captain and primary cheerleader. We will really miss her next season.”


Freshman Ben Fisher of Clayton was selected as an Indian of the week by precision riflery coach Casey Barron. “Ben placed second individually with a score of 276 in his first match,” Barron said. “This score was three points higher than he ever shot in practice and he scored higher than other shooters possessing multiple years of experience after starting riflery only three months ago. Ben is very dedicated and makes every practice even those over school breaks. He is enthusiastically supportive of his teammates and is constantly striving to make them better. He led the TFS riflery team to a combined score of 1044 which is in the upper 50th percentile of match scores posted in Area 6
