Eighth-grader Maggie Peacock of Clarkesville was named an Indian of the Week by middle school track and field coach Scott Neal. “Maggie joined the high school practices a week before the middle school season so she could get in sports shape, learn the team warm up and be mentored by the high school team captains,” Neal said. “She then quickly set the example for her peers the first week of middle school practice role modeling GREAT, demonstrating drills and leading workouts. She caught the attention of the varsity team by completing 12 tower hills as well as her infectious attitude.”

Middle School Boy

Seventh-grader Lincoln Hall of Mt. Airy was selected as an Indian of the Week by middle school track and field coach Scott Neal. “Lincoln quickly picked up where he left off last season,”  Neal said.  “A dedicated athlete, engaging teammate and positive leader, Lincoln listens attentively, focuses on the task at hand and ambitiously pursues excellence.

Varsity Girl

Freshman Sam Stamey of Clarkesville was named an Indian of the Week by precision rifle coach Casey Barron. “Sam has been a consistent leader this season,” Barron said. “Even when she could not practice due to injury she still came to provide individual instruction to her teammates, helping to raise their scores substantially. She has been Top Shooter in two matches. She won our most recent match with a score of 273/300.”

Varsity Boy

Sophomore David Woods of Durham, NC was selected as an Indian of the Week by varsity boys basketball coach Jim Van Hooser. “David is beginning to understand the effort required to reach his potential as a basketball player,” said Van Hooser. “He has made more progress in the past week than in the past two months because he increased his intensity and work. He grew as a player even though he didn’t play in a game. He is now learning to become a player through a commitment to hard work.”
