TFS coaches name Indians of the Week for March 19-24
Tallulah Falls School coaches have selected their Indian athletes of the week for March 19-24.
MIDDLE SCHOOL GIRL
Seventh-grader Maddie LeBlanc of Clarkesville was named an Indian of the Week by middle school girls soccer coach Travis Mullis. “Maddie has been a driving force behind the formation of our first middle school girls team,” Mullis said. “She is a smart, tenacious player who plays the centerback position and has made many defensive stops this season. She plays on both the TFS team and her Rapids FC team, providing a consistency that both teams cherish.”
MIDDLE SCHOOL BOY
Seventh-grader Austin Ball of Tiger was selected as an Indian of the Week by middle school track & field coach Scott Neal. “Austin epitomizes the GREAT character, practice discipline, competition focus and strong leadership sought in all TFS athletes,” said Neal. “He is unafraid to stand alone or in front of his 50-plus member team or to work through the significant discomfort associated with training and competing. Austin sets lofty team and personal goals and is respected by his peers and coaches as a trusted leader whose team devotion sets the standard in the program.”
Sophomore Kally Momoh of Marietta was named an Indian of the Week by varsity girls soccer coach Whitney Calloway. “Kally started our last game as a forward but moved to wing,” Calloway said. “When I subbed her out she immediately asked to go back in at wing. She worked hard on defense, taking the ball away from the other team several times. Kally worked hard at defense, staying wide and available and distributing the ball to her teammates. Since that game, she has been training hard trying to be the best player she can be for her team.”
Junior Caleb Whitlock of Cleveland was selected as an Indian of the Week by varsity baseball coach Mark Wilcox. “Caleb had two quality starts last week for the Indians, pitting more than eight innings and throwing a lot of strikes,” Wilcox said. “Errors made his job more difficult but he persevered through the adversity and gave some valuable innings to the team. Caleb continues to be one of the harder working players on the team and improves with every outing.”
