Indians of the Week named for the week ending August 29

Tallulah Falls School (TFS) announces the Indians of the Week for the week ending August 29, 2020.  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 August 24-29) include Caroline Ball and Charlie Cody for high school, and Molly Rickman and KC Respress for middle school. 

Caroline Ball – Cross Country

Caroline Ball (Tiger, GA) quickly jumped into the cross country season with determination, a reverberating team spirit, and a tough joy that is contagious. She already moved up to #3 on the team; she is improving rapidly because of her focus, fortitude, and developing fitness. She placed fifth of 48 in the JV Girls #2 race at Lamar Murphy Park on Saturday, earning a top ten medal. Caroline adds a healthy, happy poise to keep the stresses of running in perspective. -coach Scott Neal

Charlie Cody – Cross Country

Charlie Cody (Cornelia, GA) finished 13th of 112 JV runners in the two-mile section of the North GA Championships Invite JV Boys #1 race. That was his first cross country race, and it moved him up onto the varsity for the next race. Charlie ran strategically smart, being patient yet pushing himself. He will certainly help the team pursue its second consecutive state-qualifying berth and contribute significantly to the memories developed and bonds strengthened that are such a part of TFS XC! -coach Scott Neal

Molly Rickman – Cross Country

Molly Rickman (Tiger, GA) started out as the sixth runner on the girls cross country team, but within one week has already moved up to number three. Extracting from some of the summer workouts in addition to the daily practices once school started, Molly is gaining the endurance and the mental mindset so necessary in XC. She is easy to coach and a positive teammate! -coach Scott Neal

KC Respress – Tennis

KC Respress (Cornelia, GA) has never played tennis before but boy does he bring eagerness and a great thrill to the sport. He has tremendous athleticism and will do wonders in the sport of tennis. His attitude with himself and others is to do the best that one can do and better themselves as they continue to learn and try hard. -coach Lisa Wilcox
