MIDDLE SCHOOL GIRL

Maddie has taken ownership of the team and has welcomed leadership opportunities. She encourages her teammates to give their absolute best effort at all times.”
MIDDLE SCHOOL BOY
Seventh-grader Ethan Simmons was selected as an Indian of the Month by middle school track & field coach Scott Neal. “Ethan is a sprinter and long jumper who comes to practice daily with the direct intent to improve,” Neal said. “He uses time wisely, listens attentively and seeks to quickly apply new technical skills. He quietly leads by example, demonstrates the process and journey as vital to success and lives by GREAT standards.”
Senior Sydney Spivey of Demorest was named an Indian of the Month by track & field coach Scott Neal. “Sydney is such a significant contributor to the life of Tallulah Falls School,” Neal said. “She accomplishes this as a student section leader at volleyball or basketball games, volunteering at other athletic events and representing TFS in track & field and other activities. Sydney is a track & field captain, hurdler and runs relay lead-off leg and her focus is on the team and how she can best maximize our performance. She has improved in hurdling and running skills and is ranked in area returning hurdlers.”
