We’re nearing the end of 2021, a year that was again marked by the many challenges of the COVID-19 pandemic.

Let’s take a look at some of my favorite memories and moments of the action I covered this year across the Lowco.
We’ve come to the end of another football season in the Lowco, and this year’s edition may have been one of the most special yet. We saw a pair of state champions defend their titles and another team run the gauntlet all the way to the final weekend in Columbia. We witnessed a Lowco star crowned as the top player in the state, and a number of others earn recognition for their hard work on and off the field. We’ll always look back on this 2021 season, and especially these moments and stories that captivated us over a memorable fall.
After slaying Myrtle Beach up in the Grand Strand and crushing West Florence in front of a packed home stadium, the Beaufort High Eagles have earned their way to Benedict College for Thursday’s Class 4A title bout against former coach DeVonte Holloman and South Pointe.

As Houpt makes the transition to his next chapter and Adams embarks on his well-deserved retirement, let’s look back on how both have made their mark here in the Lowcountry.
As he began his junior year of high school, Nick Pringle was barely on anyone’s college basketball radar. Three years later, the former Whale Branch sensation is on his way to help propel a budding national title contender.
