HSGBB: Young comes back strong, but Cougars snare first region win

Hilton Head High’s Lynda Young impressed in her return to the court Tuesday, but Shandi Brown and Makayla Chisolm’s stellar shooting powered Colleton County girls basketball past the visiting Seahawks for a 56-50 win in the Cougars’ first Region 7-4A victory.

Brown scored 18 points on 9-of-14 shooting and snagged 11 rebounds and seven steals, while Chisolm drained three 3-pointers en route to 15 points to lead the Cougars. Heaven Green contributed nine points, and Bethany Monroe had eight.

Young was terrific in her first contest since Dec. 14, leading all scorers with 23 points and pulling down 13 rebounds. Chyna Fields put up 12 points and seven boards, and Gianna Timko tallied nine points.

Colleton County (9-5, 1-2) travels to Bluffton on Friday. Hilton Head High (5-9, 0-3) visits Beaufort High on Friday.
