Beaufort High’s Simon McAlister took home low medalist honors, while host Hilton Head Prep fielded two teams and finished first and second at the inaugural Prep Cup played Tuesday and Wednesday at Wexford Golf Club and Long Cove Club.
Hilton Head Prep’s Blue team took home the hardware with a 27-hole score of 468 after Wednesday’s second round at Long Cove was cut short by afternoon thunderstorms. Hilton Head Prep Red was second at 490, edging Beaufort High by four shots.
McAlister continued his red-hot play with a third straight individual victory, following an opening 74 with a 39 to finish one shot clear of HHP’s Jeep Patrick and Cade Kriscunas. HHCA’s Sean Engler was another shot back in fourth, and HHP’s Jack Crousore and Garret Fader tied for fifth at 8-over par 116.
