Franklin Springs, GA - The athletes of the week for this week are Tara Larson and Andrew Smith.
Tara Larson was named Athlete of the Week for her impressive play against conference foe, Erskine College. A junior from Florida, Tara set the pace of the game by stealing 15 of the team's 20 draw controls, and limiting Erskine's to only 5 draw controls. Her presence on the field was impossible to ignore as she recorded 10 of the team's total 15 ground balls and 5 goals. By Larson leading her team to victory, she is ranked as the 5th highest scoring shooter in the Conference Carolinas.
Andrew Smith, a senior from Niceville Florida, came in second in a 100-man field event this last weekend. Twelve of the top 100 players were represented this weekend, and Andrew impressively beat all but one. There was also 4 top twenty-five schools in attendance.
Congratulations to both athletes on their accomplishments!
