HS BSB: Seahawks start strong, can’t keep pace with Cadets

Hilton Head High baseball couldn’t keep up with an impressive Benedictine offense Monday, falling 16-5 at home in an interstate matchup.

The Seahawks started the contest strong, taking a 3-2 lead in the bottom of the first when Daniel Keber drew a bases-loaded walk before Kyle Markowitz smoked a two-RBI triple to grab a one-run advantage.

Benedictine retook the lead with four in the second, and Hilton Head made it a 6-5 ballgame in the bottom half with a Jackson Philpot walk and an RBI groundout. But it was all Cadets the rest of the way, rattling off 10 unanswered runs to claim a dominant road victory.

Markowitz delivered at the dish for the Seahawks, going 2-for-3 with a pair of RBIs, while Tate Miller was strong from the leadoff spot with a 2-for-4 game. 

The Seahawks dedicated the game to former standout Mac Watson, who recently was diagnosed with acute lymphoblastic leukemia, requesting a $10 donation to the Watson family in lieu of regular admission. Donations are also being accepted through GoFundMe.

Hilton Head High (8-12, 4-5) closes out the region slate at May River on Friday.
