Multiple Teams · December Spotlight: Vote for our Gator’s Student Athlete of the Month

Hello Students, Parents and the TC Community!

The Timber Creek Wolves Athletic Department would like to announce our monthly contest for the 2018 athletic season brought to you by Gator’s Dockside of Waterford Lakes. Each month the Timber Creek coaches select a member of their team that best exemplifies a Wolf Student Athlete. There is an emphasis on each of the players being an exemplary athlete, student, teammate and community member. This year we will be recognizing individual male and female student athletes of the month. For the month of December, we will be combining stats from the month of November and December due to many winter sports starting mid November.

Each winner will be chosen by the number of votes cast on our website. Voting for the Gators Student Athletes of the Month for December will run from today, 1/9 and will end on Monday, 1/14 at 2PM. The winning student athletes will be recognized on our website for the month, receive a certificate of recognition and receive a gift from Gators Dockside of Waterford Lakes.
