Elite Stone Supply, in conjunction with WBHF and Bartow Sports Zone, presents the ELITE ATHLETES OF THE MONTH. Each month, local high schools are provided the opportunity to name an Elite Athlete of the Month from their varsity programs and present the information on their honoree through Bartow Sports Zone and on 100.3FM and AM1450, WBHF in Cartersville.


The Adairsville High Elite Athlete of the Month for April 2024 is Claire Brown.

A junior golfer and the top player on the Lady Tigers’ team, she has qualified as an individual for the GHSA Class 3A state golf championship tournament.

The daughter of Derron and Megan Brown, she is a 4.0 GAP Magnet Program student, a member of the BETA Club, and is active with the Fellowship of Christian Athletes.

“Claire played really well at our Area Tournament, which serves as the state qualifier. She was able to shoot the lowest score of anyone whose team did not make it to the state championship tournament. That earned her a spot as an individual. She works extremely hard and competes each time she is on the course,” remarked coach Troy Hester.

Brown’s goal is to play golf in college.

Caleb Daniel is the April 2024 Elite Athlete of the Month for Cartersville High School.

A senior outfielder on the top-ranked Canes’ baseball team, Daniel is a three-year starter and a multiple-time All-State and All-Region selection.

“Caleb is an outstanding young man who works hard and represents himself and his family very well both on and off the field,” said Cartersville baseball coach Kyle Tucker.

He is the son of Wynell and Richard Daniel and will continue his academic and athletic career with the University of Georgia baseball team.

The April 2024 Elite Athlete of the Month representing Woodland High School is Andy Forsyth.

A senior member and captain of the Wildcats’ cross country team and a member of the track and field team, he is the son of Allan and Marianne Forsyth.

He is the Region 7-5A champion and state qualifier in the 800 meters and is a member of the region champion 4x800 meter relay team.

Woodland coach Rob Forbes shared his pleasure in working with Forsyth. “Andy has stepped into a leadership role the past two years. His work ethic and dedication to reaching his goals as a runner inspire those around him to do their best. He has been a pleasure to coach and I look forward to what he can accomplish in his collegiate endeavors.”

Forsyth is a Woodland Scholar-Athlete and plans to run cross country and track at Berry College.
