Eagles News · August Athletes of the Month–Kiersten James and Lane Cantrell

Kiersten, known on the field as KJ, is a Junior outfielder for the Lady Eagles. She excels defensively making ESPN Top Ten worthy catches almost every game while hitting a solid .367. She was 6-8 throughout a double header against Woodstock and is consistent in her approach at the plate. Her combination of power, 2 HR’s, and speed challenges opposing defenses almost every game.  She is a leader on and off the field and we cannot wait to see her perform in the playoffs!


A 3-year Varsity starter, Lane has been the unquestioned leader of our defense.  He has been our Defensive Player of the Week twice already this season, in addition to providing leadership in both deed and work on the field and off.  In addition to his Friday night performance, Lane also helps coach our 8th grade Junior Eagles team, reads to elementary students in our zone, and holds a job.   He truly represents what is means to be an Etowah Eagle.
