HSGOLF: Saylor, McAlister card 34s, but Sharks take team title

Bluffton’s Jones Saylor and Beaufort High’s Simon McAlister set the pace with sterling rounds of 2-under 34 to share medalist honors, but a steady effort from May River led the Sharks to a five-shot win over Beaufort and Hilton Head High in a four-team Region 7-4A boys golf meet Thursday at Pinecrest Golf Club in Bluffton.

Saylor and McAlister had to go low to edge May River’s Braydon O’Leary (35) by one shot for medalist honors, but Landry Williams (36), Nick Nelson (38), and Conrad Gall (41) put together solid outings to help the Sharks claim the team title. O’Leary finished third and Williams tied for fourth with Beaufort’s Jack Lubkin.

Hilton Head High had four golfers crack the top 10 individually, as Nolan Hawkins (37) led the way in sixth, Ben Batson (38) tied for seventh with Nelson, and Jackson Crouch and Logan Kriney carded 40s to tie for ninth with Beaufort’s Jack Sumner and Bluffton’s Jackson Sacha.
