The Cartersville High School Elite Athlete of the Month for March is Kendyl Anderson. A senior and soccer midfielder for the Lady Canes, Anderson serves as a 2021 team captain.

At the time of this nomination, Anderson led the team in assists and was tied for the team lead in goals.

“Kendyl always gives maximum effort regardless of opponent or occasion,” said Lady Canes’ coach Chad Murray. “She is extremely coachable and really serves as an on-field coach. She is a born leader who not only leads by words, but by example. She anchors the middle of the field for us and has caught the attention of opposing coaches with her combination of effort and skill. It has been an honor to serve as her coach.”

The daughter of Scott Anderson and Melissa Latimer, Kendyl has a brother Kaden who plays on the boys' team. Anderson has committed to play college soccer at Reinhardt University.

Tatianna Christian is the March Elite Athlete of the Month representing Cass High School.

A senior, Christian has been a three-sport athlete playing softball, basketball, and participating in track and field since her freshman year.

This year she has played a role aiding both the softball and basketball teams in qualifying for the state playoffs.

Christian has also been a consistent point scorer for the girls' track team. This season, she has placed in every meet — scoring in both shot put and discus throw. She currently has the third-best discus throw mark in school history at 101 feet and 7 inches. That throw is also the best in Region 7-AAAAA this season. Tatiana has set goals of establishing a new school record and qualifying for the state track and field meet. Following high school, she plans to go to college and hopes to continue her track and field career with the shot and discus.

The March 2021 Elite Athlete of the Month for Adairsville High School is Christian Gough.

A junior member of the Tigers’ track and field team, he is the son of Terry and Erin Gough.

Gough, who primarily participates in the 800-meter run and with the 4x400 meter relay team, had a first-place finish at the Cass meet and a top-five finish at the 12-team Calhoun meet in the 800. His personal best time of 2:05 is only one second off the school record.

“Christian has a tremendous work ethic,” noted Adairsville High Athletic Coordinator Drew Elrod. “During the off-season, you will see him running all over campus. He is a high character young man that excels on the track and in the classroom. Christian is a great example of what it means to represent the A!”

Gough carries a 3.8 grade point average while taking Honors and Advanced Placement classes. He plans to attend college/university after high school.

Peyton Posey is the Woodland High School Elite Athlete of the Month for March 2021.

Posey is a starting pitcher and outfielder for the Wildcats’ baseball team. Through his first 20 innings pitched this season, Posey had 22 strikeouts and only four walks. His walks + hits to innings pitched ratio was 1.05 with an earned run average of 2.10.

At the plate, the senior was hitting .344 at the time of this submission in late March.

He will continue his education and baseball career after high school. The right-hander has committed to play at Shorter University.
