As the second half got underway, Timmonsville scored 7 points but Coach Lowder called a time out to ice the Whirlswinds push. The East Clarendon girls were not about to let Timmonsville gain momentum, on offense or defense. During the third quarter, Talaysia Cooper dove into a table to help East Clarendon maintain possession. East Clarendon continued to hustle and play hard no matter the score. They kept Timmonsville off balance. The disciplined Wolverines kept their heads on a swivel and their hands in the faces of the Timmonsville players. Britni Anderson kept the Timmonsville girls out of the paint, which forced more poor shots and passes. She blocked three shots. The Wolverines finished the night with 12 steals and six blocks. Talaysia Cooper finished the night with 18 tpoints. Caitlin Timmons had 10 points and Gracen Watts added 13 for the Wolverines. As the game ended, Coach Mike Lowder walked onto court and pointed to the fans from Turbeville. Lowder said, “I was just saying thank you. We had a sendoff in downtown Turbeville and I’ve never been a part of anything like that.” Lowder ended by saying, “I am so proud of these girls and the hard work they put in all year. Even the girls that didn’t get to play much understood what we trying to do.” The East Clarendon Wolverines will never forget their road to the state championship game and the 55-31 victory over Timmonsville to become the 1A Girls Basketball State Champions.
