Wade Hampton alumni claim bragging rights at Lowcountry Legacy hoops event

The Wade Hampton Red Devils added one more for the trophy case — a few months after the history books on their school officially closed — when a multi-generational team of WHHS alums completed a 3-0 run through the bracket to claim the title at the inaugural Lowcountry Legacy Basketball Tournament on Saturday at the Hardeeville Recreation Center.

Organized by former Jasper County/Ridgeland Jaguars three-sport standout Alex Percival, the event pitted alumni squads from four Lowcountry high schools — Jasper County, Ridgeland-Hardeeville, Wade Hampton, and Bluffton — against one another in a double-elimination bracket, resulting in six hours of wall-to-wall basketball with music, contests and giveaways at halftime of each game, and food trucks.
