Joshua L. Torrence
Joshua Torrence was a member of the first White Knoll High School Football team, as an offensive lineman from 2000-2003. Upon his graduation, he enlisted into the United States Marines in 2003 and was assigned to 2nd Assault Amphibian Battalion, 2nd Marine Division, II Marine Expeditionary Force, Camp Lejeune, North Carolina. On March 14, 2005 Lance Corporal Joshua L. Torrence died of wounds received as a result of hostile action in Al Anbar Province, Iraq. He was 20 years old.
During construction of the White Knoll football stadium, an effort to name the stadium's field house after LCPL Torrence was begun. In order to name the field house after Torrence, the school had to raise $150,000. Fundraising efforts began in the Summer of 2006 and by November 2007, the field house was officially named the LCPL Joshua L. Torrence Field House.
The field house contains home and visitor locker rooms, training room, officials locker room, storage, visitor concessions and restrooms. Opening in August 2007, the White Knoll High School football stadium was opened with much excitement for Timberwolf fans who were tired of sharing a stadium with their crosstown rivals, the Lexington Wildcats. Costing more than $5 million to construct, the "Wolf Den" is home to Timberwolf Football, Mens and Womens Soccer, and Mens Lacrosse.
BASEBALL- The White Knoll Baseball team has been the powerhouse in the state of South Carolina for number of years: winning their first ever state championship in the spring of 2010 and known for making the playoffs a priority.
