This week’s show includes analysis of Hilton Head Prep’s football coach hire, news from a pair of Lowco golfers, and an update on the USCB Sand Sharks, but the primary focus is the SCHSL Wrestling State Championships. Hilton Head High coach Patrick Boulware and state qualifiers Chris Crosby and KJ Holland join us in the virtual studio to add to our preview of the big weekend in Anderson.
When you think of winter sports season, you think of the excitement and the heart-pounding action of a basketball game. But even hoops may not compare to the excitement we saw on the wrestling mat this year.
Hilton Head High won the team title and claimed four individual titles, and the Seahawks and May River each sent seven wrestlers through to next weekend’s state tournament, leading a total of 18 state qualifiers from the Lowco at the SCHSL Class 4A Lower State wrestling meet Saturday at Bluffton High School.
Hilton Head High is in second place and has all 14 wrestlers remaining in contention, including eight in the semifinals, after the first day of the SCHSL Class 4A Lower State wrestling meet Friday at Bluffton High School.
Three John Paul II wrestlers placed in the top four in their weight classes and the Golden Warriors finished sixth in the team standings to lead the Lowco contingent at the SCISA state championships on Saturday in Columbia.
It’s a fate many teams have suffered over the years, and the May River wrestling team experienced it for a second straight season — losing a state championship match at the hands of Palmetto State powerhouse Eastside.
