Chiles Timberwolves United wins soccer gold medal at 2022 Special Olympics USA Games

It was a moment that has been weeks, months, and for some, over a decade in the making.

This past weekend Timberwolves United, Chiles High School’s Special Olympics program sent 16 athletes (eight Olympians and eight unified partners) down to Orlando to compete in the 2022 Special Olympics USA Games in three different sports: 7v7 soccer, track and field and bowling.

Chiles was well represented in Orlando, but it was its soccer team that ended up stealing the show. Playing under “Team Florida”, Chiles defeated Team Texas, 2-0, to win the gold medal in 7v7 soccer and take the top spot on the podium for the first time in program history.
