May River wrestling coach Ashley Powell drops in to discuss his team's run to the Class 4A dual state championship match on Saturday, Feb. 20, 2021, and the guys pick their Teams of the Week.
They were so close for so many years, but in their first season in Class 4A, May River’s wrestlers conquered the Lower State — at the expense of their rival Hilton Head High Seahawks. Now, the Sharks have a chance to topple a perennial state powerhouse and claim a state title in just their fifth year of existence.
May River racked up eight pins — including seven straight to close out the match — turning what started as a competitive dual into a 58-18 rout to punch the Sharks’ ticket to the Class 4A championship match.
May River’s dynamite squad made quick work of Hartsville in the Class 4A Lower State semifinals on Monday, defeating the Red Foxes 58-18 at home to set up a winner-take-all bout with the Hilton Head High Seahawks on Wednesday night.
Hilton Head High’s wrestlers earned another crack at their Lowco rivals, and this time, a date in the state championship match will be on the line.
