Boys’ Track Star of the Season
The Millington Trojan brought home a pair of medals from Murfreesboro on May 27. He participated in the Class A-AA 200m and 400m events. He took the silver medal in the 200m and finished fourth in the 400m. His time in the 400m was 50.43. In the 200m race, Miller ran 21.73 on the Middle Tennessee State University track.
Girls’ Newcomer of the Year
The Brighton Lady Cardinals picked up their first win of the basketball season back in November in large part to freshman guard Taliyah Brown stepping up in the clutch. She was called on to step up in the overtime with ball-handling and running the offense. She made clutch foul shots to help beat Memphis Catholic giving Head Coach Tiffany Porter her first win at Brighton. The rest of the season Brown earned starting time and continued her progress as a point guard.
Boys’ Newcomer of the Year
The Tipton-Rosemark Academy underclassman made his return to the school in a big way jumping into the starting lineup of the basketball team. He is a combo guard that can shoot and drive to the basket. He will be counted on to run the offense more with the graduation of Johnie Sanfratello. Look for Carter to be one of the top scorers in the near future and use his athleticism in many ways on the TRA campus.
