WRHS girls host Twin Falls Thursday

First meeting of last year’s GBC finalists

Two Great Basin Conference teams that staged four epic clashes last winter will meet for the first time in the 2011-12 season Thursday, Dec. 1 when the Twin Falls Bruins (1-1) visit the Wood River Wolverines (0-2) for the GBC league opener on the Hailey hardwoods. Both teams are coming off long layoffs, Wood River 14 days after its 47-39 home loss to Filer Nov. 17 and Twin Falls 12 days after its 35-29 home loss to Idaho Falls Nov. 19. Last winter, Wood River won all four meetings including two games in Hailey at the GBC league tournament. The Wolverines (21-3) finished second in the State 4A tournament and Twin Falls (19-8) was third in the eight-team meet. Here, in this photo taken at the Nov. 17 home opener against Filer, Wood River assistant coaches Kevin Stilling (left) and Fred Trenkle (center) gather with the Wolverines in the huddle. Stilling and his wife, Wolverine head coach Mendy Benson, greeted a newborn girl, Camrynn Hope Stilling (7 pounds, 5 ounces, 20 inches) on Wednesday, Nov. 23 at a hospital in Portland, Ore. Camrynn joins her sister, two-and-a-half year-old Tobie Joy.
