Wolves take tourney championship
The Timberland Wolves and championships seem to go hand in hand.
The Wolves took the Wilson 7-on-7 championship by downing Georgia’s McIntosh County 30-13 last week. The passing league tournament was sponsored by the National Guard.
In the opening round Timberland downed Lake City 14-7, then defeated host Wilson 27-3 in the tournament’s semifinals.
“It was nice to see us compete as a team and get better each day,” said THS Coach Art Craig. “We struggled on the first day but got more competitive on day two. It was nice to see us playing on a really high level considering how young we are.”
Other teams playing in the camp were Dutch Fork, Fairfield Central and McCormick.
Timberland finished the 2012 campaign with an 11-2 record overall and a perfect 5-0 Region 7AA mark. The Wolves fell to Dillon 48-13 in the Class AA Lower State finals.
THS opens the season on Aug. 23 at home against Manning.
