Coed Varsity Cross Country, Girls Varsity Swimming · September Male and Female Student Athletes of the Month (Sponsored by Texas Roadhouse)


The Strom Thurmond High School Athletic Department highlights a male and  female student athlete each month who have exemplified Pride, Class, Courage, and the Will to Win on and off the field.  We are excited to announce that our Texas Roadhouse Athletes of the Month for September are Garrett Elkins and Taylor Dean.

Garrett Elkins is a senior and a member of the STHS Cross Country Team. Garrett has had a great month running for the Rebels and set a personal record at the last meet at North Augusta.  “Garrett has improved greatly as a runner and his commitment to the team has been outstanding,” said Head Coach Tommy Behr.

Taylor Dean is a freshman and a member of the STHS Swim Team.  Taylor has been swimming for the Rebels for 3 years and has improved each year.  She has been a standout in the pool this season as she has qualified for State in 4 events and is also a part of the 200 meter relay team.  “Taylor has worked very hard and committed many hours in the pool to be her best.  I am very proud of her and am excited about seeing her and our other swimmers compete on Saturday,” said Head Coach Debbie Courtney.

Congratulations Garrett and Taylor!

Thank you Texas Roadhouse in Augusta for sponsoring our Male and Female Athlete of the Month!
