Justin Jarrett and Wes Kerr get together for their weekly discussion of sports in the South Carolina Lowcountry. The Lowco Pod Squad talks about how they kept sports in their lives this week, runs down the latest local sports news, and catches up with MLB prospect and Hilton Head High alumnus Carmen Mlodzinski, HHIHS senior and Towson University lacrosse signee Will Frith, and Bluffton soccer standout and Newberry signee Uriel Zarracan.
Although her senior season was cut short, the accolades are still rolling in for former May River softball standout Kylee Gleason, who on Thursday was named the 2019-20 Gatorade South Carolina Softball Player of the Year.

It was hard to imagine what Kylee Gleason might do for an encore. The May River softball star has hit over .500 ever year during her career with the Sharks, including a silly .683 clip as a junior.
