Opportunities in life don't come around very often. When Beaufort High alumnus Ryle Owens was given a chance to try to keep his hoops dreams going, he made the most of it. Now, he’s eying the NBA Draft.
The Lowco Pod Squad of Justin Jarrett and Wes Kerr gets together for a weekly rundown of South Carolina Lowcountry sports news, discussion of how sports will look when we return from the COVID-19 shutdown, and which local sports team or figure is worthy of "The Last Dance" treatment. We have interviews with new Hilton Head High girls basketball coach Russell Raniszewski and Battery Creek hoops standout Amoni "AJ" Waring.
LowcoSports is partnering with a number of local charity beneficiaries to #LowcoMotivate our friends and neighbors to train for and participate in the LowcoStrong Virtual 5K the week of June 21, 2020.
For the second year in a row, Battery Creek will have a new girls basketball coach next season.
The original Lowco Pod Squad is reunited, as JJ and Wes set sail to talk South Carolina Lowcountry sports without Carlo, who has shoved off for the summer but will return in the fall. Another week, another high-profile hire, as Hilton Head High picked its girls basketball coach. Wes has an interview with Beaufort Academy standout Dawson Coleman, who has accepted a spot on the South Carolina Gamecock football team, and JJ has a conversation with new Battery Creek football coach Terrance Ashe.
When Russell Raniszewski headed south from the Florence area to take a teaching job at H.E. McCracken Middle School last summer, he didn’t know what his future as a basketball coach would hold.
Dawson Coleman has been a constant presence in the Beaufort Academy athletics department since he was an eighth-grader. Now he is taking his versatile skill set to the South Carolina Gamecocks.
It wasn’t quite the “normal” signing ceremony, but Hilton Head High found a creative way to honor eight student-athletes who formalized their college commitments in a unique signing celebration Thursday.
