TFS coaches name Indians of the Week


Tallulah Falls School coaches have selected Indian Athletes of the Week for Oct. 28 - Nov. 2. 


Seventh-grader Chesney Tanksley of Mt. Airy was selected as an Indian of the Week by middle school coach Sharae Long. “Chesney pushed through an injury this week and still managed to give 100% every day,” Long said. “She has a great attitude and is a great team player.” 


Seventh-grader Zach Freeman of Clarkesville was named an Indian of the Week by middle school basketball ‘B’ squad coach Anthony Cox. “Zach has been such a hard worker early on this season,” Cox said. “He has demonstrated a willingness to learn and that is what we look for in student-athletes at this level.”



Sophomore Lucy Alexander of Sautee Nacoochee was named an Indian of the Week by cross country coach Scott Neal. “Lucy ran a course best 23:10.9 to place 16th overall at the Area Cross Country championships,” Neal said. She then went on to lead the Lady Indians to a 12th place team finish while running 22:15, good enough for 36th place, at the state championships. Lucy cares deeply about the team, is engaged consistently and positively and came on very strong in the last weeks of the season. Her state performance was her best race ever from a strategic, mental toughness and inspirational point of view. Her record ranks No. 2 on the TFS Legacy List and her state time is a TFS best since the early 1990s.”  


Sophomore Evan Prince of Demorest was selected as an Indian of the Week by cross country coach Scott Neal. “Evan earned All-State honors by running 16:53.55 to place fifth in Class A-Private,” said Neal. “He was only .17 second from fourth place. His time ranked 51st of 1463 runners from all classifications, which is the top three percent of all runners. Undeterred by the cold temperatures and tough conditions, the Indians placed ninth of the 16 state qualifying teams, which is a solid and noteworthy performance.”
