Another unbeaten season for WRMS football

7-0 this fall, 13-0 overall

What a terrific couple of seasons for the Wood River Middle School football team! The Hailey eighth-graders earned their second straight unbeaten season Oct. 16 with a 24-0 home win over Jerome at Chuck Turner Field. It was the team’s third straight shutout after 52-0 and 38-0 wins over Burley and Gooding. The victory capped a 7-0 campaign during which the young Wolverines out-scored opponents 208-26. Last year as seventh graders, the squad was 6-0 outscoring its foes 236-6. So, over two years, the group was 13-0 with a 444-32 scoring edge. Helping the team’s offense to a 34.2 ppg scoring average in two years has been running back Owen Gifford, shown here breaking a tackle during the 24-0 win over Jerome Oct. 16 in Hailey. The team’s coaches were Craig Kaminski, Chris Malmgren and Rob Swanson.
