Indians of the Week for week ending September 19
The Indians of the Week are chosen by coaches, and recognize student-athletes that play sports that are currently in season. This week's Indians of the Week (for the week of September 14-19) include Nancy Fisher and Grey Bourlet for high school, and Lizzie Heubner and DJ Broome for middle school. PAST INDIANS OF THE WEEK
Nancy Fisher - Volleyball
This week the Lady Indians won four matches and only lost one. A lot of that was due to some amazing play by Nancy Fisher. Nancy played the best volleyball of her long career here at Tallulah Falls School. She led the team with the highest hitting percentage, highest serve percentage, and one of the highest serve ratings. She was a dominant force at the net for us all week winning many points for us there and from the service line.

Grey Bourlet - Cross Country
Senior Grey Bourlet ran a season best 5k 19:11 at the recent Pridelands Invite as the TFS #2 harrier. Grey is a Captain whose contributions to both the team itself as well as the TFS XC program range from consistently helping behind the scenes when no one is watching or even knows about it, to leading team accountability, to consistent training, to inspiring others. Grey has already been contacted by numerous colleges for track & field; he runs XC to be GREAT, to invest in his future, and for the memorable, lasting bonds that develop in relationships in cross country.

Lizzie Heubner - Tennis
8th grader Lizzie Heubner, Lizzie started at number 3 singles and is now at #1 singles. She played against Rabun Gap and won 8-5. It was a very long and drawn out tennis match, making it intense and fun to watch. Lizzie has beautiful strokes and each game and practice she shows tremendous improvement. I truly love being a part of this young lady's tennis career.

DJ Broome - Cross Country
Sixth grader DJ Broome consistently trains diligently with high effort at every practice. That work ethic is showing in his racing improvements. DJ is a positive teammate, a role model of simply working hard to get better at something that is difficult. He puts one foot in front of the other and keeps going, the very essence of middle school cross country, but he does it with a compelling determination and an inner smile!
