Battery Creek’s boys lost 63-42 to visiting Berkeley on Monday in coach CJ Brown’s debut.
“First game of the season jitters are out,” Brown said. “Playing against the 5A state runner-up will only get us where we need to be in 3A.”
AJ Waring scored 18 points, and Daviyone Sanders added 8 for the Dolphins.
Battery Creek (0-1) plays at Beaufort High on Friday.
