There were plenty of naysayers this year about a repeat appearance at the state title game for the Timberwolves, even among Timberwolf fans. At their first game against Kennesaw (then ranked #5) some fans were unsure as to where this season would lead.  Apparently they neglected the heart factor, because that is what it takes to make it to the state finals and this team has it.  They've had it for a long time but it's been fine-tuned and focused for the last three years.

They've poured their heart and soul into making their team a team and it shows in the Wcolumn.  The last four games of this season the team was behind at one point or even most of the game.  They didn't start panicking and make mistakes, instead they listened.  Their coaches coached and they listened.  And then, they made the changes and made the plays and it happened, they won.

They didn't just listen at games either, in practice they tweaked plays to make them work, listening to their coaches at every step.  This team, despite the fact that they lost a great group of seniors last year, kept their focus and made another appearance their goal.  One Team, One Mission.

One game at a time, they put the naysayers to rest and today, they killed them.  Mission Accomplished. Thank you to our coaches and our boys. . .STATE CHAMPIONS AGAIN!!!!
