The Miller Media Group and the First National Bank in Taylorville are proud to present the area athletes of the month.
Female Athlete of the Month
The Female Athlete of the Month is Grace Bollinger. Grace is a junior center on the Lady Tornado basketball team. She is a force inside and has the numbers to prove it. Grace is averaging over 12 points per game, while shooting 59% from the field and 69% from the charity stripe. She also averages five rebounds and just under 1 block per game. As a junior, Grace can only get better and that gives Coach Hannant something else to look forward to next year.
