UPPER SCHOOL GIRL

Sophomore Reagan Bates of Clarkesville was selected as an Indian of the Week by varsity girls soccer coach Jane Shoemaker. Shoemaker said, “Reagan gives 110% all day and every day in the defense on our soccer team. She works hard and encourages others to do the same in a way that makes everyone feel like they are the most important player on the team.  She is always positive and happy.  Her character on and off the field exemplifies how we want all our players to be.  She is always grateful when someone takes their time for her and she makes sure they know that she appreciates them.”  

UPPER SCHOOL BOY

Freshman Patricio Casamitjana of Mexico was selected by varsity tennis coach Randy Morris as an Indian of the Week. Morris stated, “Patricio has been a solid number two singles player for us this year. He took on a talented number two from Athens Christian and won 6-2, 7-5. This capped a 5-0 victory for the team. He has worked to improve all areas of his game this season. As a ninth grader, he has had to compete against older and more experienced players and has come away with awesome results.”
