Timberline High School Girls Basketball Building for the Future


Proposed by North Thurston Public Schools

Timberline high school girls Basketball head coach Tom Kelly is once again preparing for success and believes he has a girl group to achieve bigger goals.

Kelly is in his 31st season as a coach and continues to build his teams on an energetic, paced, pressurized and full-blown offense. His curriculum vitae includes several government titles, including 2010 to River ridge and 2018 to WF West. Currently, Timberline (6-1, 3A SSC 4-1) is second in the 3A SSC with its only loss to league leader Yelm.

The 2021 WIAA secondary season is now in phase three, which has allowed “high impact” sports like basketball, wrestling and gymnastics to compete during the spring months. These sports are generally practiced during the winter months from November to March.

Kelly continues to enjoy coaching, including the challenges he encountered at Timberline. “We’re in a tough league and we’re a young team and the team get along really well and we’re trying to come together,” Kelly said. “We played well. We had no legs at Yelm at the start of the season and I can’t wait to face them on June 1 at home.

Timberline has a senior, Jordan Carter, two juniors and a group of seven underclassmen. “Our numbers have gone down,” Kelly said. “Our program will be really good in the future. We will have more figures and great experiences to build on this year. “

For Kelly, the grind, the mentorship, the success and the challenges keep him motivated and help him continue to make an impact on his players. “31 years old, I was really lucky,” he said.

The Blazers welcome Yelm on Tuesday June 1 at the house at 7 p.m.
