TFS coaches name Indians of the Month for April
Tallulah Falls School coaches have selected their Indian athletes of the month for April.
MIDDLE SCHOOL GIRL
Eighth-grader Lucy Alexander of Sautee Nacoochee was named an Indian of the Month by track & field coach Scott Neal. “Lucy finished the track & field season at the Tri-State championships with the middle school record in the 1600-meter race, the No. 2 TFS middle school legacy list performance in the high jump and one of the top 4x4 relay splits to help the team win the conference title,” said Neal. “Lucy was a Team Leader throughout the season, leading warm-up, encouraging others and competing in any event that would help the team succeed.”
MIDDLE SCHOOL BOY
Eighth-grader Aiden Gragg of Clarkesville was selected as an Indian of the Month by middle school baseball coach Dustin Rogers. “After a sickness which landed him in the hospital,” said Rogers, “Aiden rebounded to have an outstanding month going 2-0 with an ERA under 2.0. In addition to pitching, Aiden came through with critical hits with runners in scoring position. His performance was pivotal in the Indians Tri-State championship.”
Senior Anna Davis of Clarkesville was named an Indian of the Month by track & field coach Scott Neal. “Anna Davis, a senior captain and Davidson signee, is a seven-year veteran of TFS track & field,” said Neal. “She won the 300-meter hurdles in a school record time of 44.53 at the Area Championship. Anna also qualified to compete at the pinnacle meet in the 100-meter hurdles where she also set a school record time at the sectionals (14.79 seconds). Anna’s relay anchor leg is legendary at TFS, as she has come from behind so many times over the last four years to help her relay team succeed and advance. She is loved and respected by her teammates and competitors alike. Anna’s GREAT representation of TFS is equally legendary.”
Freshman Grey Bourlet of Tallulah Falls was selected as an Indian of the Month by track & field coach Scott Neal. “Grey has been the TFS top male scorer throughout the season,” said Neal. “His marks rank in the top three all-time of TFS freshmen in three outdoor events (110-meter hurdles, 300-meter hurdles and the pole vault) and three indoor events (pole vault, 60-meter hurdles and the 400-meter). Grey also had the fastest 4x4 relay split this season. His tenacity, toughness and team-oriented approach to training and competition has not been without adversity. Undaunted all season, Grey has already begun to prepare to be a state champion.”
