VERSIONS OF THIS BILL
CONGRATULATING THE MEMBERS OF THE TIMBERLAND HIGH SCHOOL "WOLVES" BASKETBALL TEAM ON THEIR CHAMPIONSHIP SEASON AS THEY WEAR THE 2002-2003 CLASS AAA STATE BASKETBALL CROWN, THE FIRST-EVER STATE TITLE FOR THE BERKELEY COUNTY SCHOOL.
Whereas, the Timberland High School "Wolves" of Berkeley County won the South Carolina AAA basketball title for 2002-2003 in a 67-45 win over Lugoff-Elgin, March 8, 2003, in Columbia; and
Whereas, Head Coach Jerome Stewart, Assistant Coaches Joseph Wallace and Carlton Spears, Trainer Wayne Jefferson, Jr., and Team Managers Christopher Gainey and Spencer Goodman led the "Wolves" to a 27-2 season; and
Whereas, Timberland High School's Principal Eugene Lemmon, along with the faculty, students, and loyal fans, celebrated the first state championship ever for the seven-year-old St. Stephen high school; and
Whereas, in the title match the "Wolves" used defense, determination, and rebounding to cap their stellar season with the State crown; and
Whereas, high scorers Keith Marshall (18 points) and Michael Griffin and Dustin Scott, both with 16 points, provided the fire power, and Bryan Williams' inspired play set up a 10-2 run late in the first half to settle the matter; and
Whereas, Dustin Scott's twin Justin, Desmond Addison, and Ronald Washington contributed their usual steadfast and consistent play, and form a nucleus for a returning top team; and
Whereas, other valuable Timberland High School "Wolves" are Ronald Hunter, Fitzgerald Wiggins, Durant Norton, Evan Blanding, Derrick Gant, Robert Williams, and Jamar Lumpkin; and
Whereas, their hard work and success is typical of the gutsy performances of hundreds of student athletes across the State. Now, therefore,
Be it resolved by the Senate, the House of Representatives concurring:
That the General Assembly of the State of South Carolina hereby congratulate the members of the Timberland High School "Wolves" Basketball Team on their championship season as they wear the 2002-2003 Class AAA State Basketball Crown, the first-ever state title for the Berkeley County School.
Be it further resolved that a copy of this resolution be presented to Head Coach Jerome Stewart, Principal Eugene Lemmon, and the "Wolves" Championship Team.
