Justin Jarrett: LowCo Lights Spring Update | March 25, 2024 | LowCo Sports

Most of the Friday night sports schedule was washed away by heavy rain, which kept our LowcoSports stars off the soggy baseball and softball diamonds again Saturday, but the new turf fields at area high schools allowed the show to go on for the Hilton Head High lacrosse teams and the May River boys soccer squad, which didn’t have any trouble syncing up in saturated conditions in The Tank, swimming to a 10-0 win over Hilton Head Prep.

Team Lowco soccer reporter Conner Worl joined us on Friday’s episode of the LowcoSports Lowdown to give his thoughts on the Sharks’ performance and preview May River’s showdown with the rival Bobcats in the Bluffton Derby on Tuesday.

The clash between the Hilton Head Prep and May River girls was a far more intriguing matchup, but we didn’t get the pleasure because the skies opened up in Sea Pines and the conditions were … well … great for this. Classic rain delay theater. But no soccer in Sea Pines.

The rains cleared out in time for a lacrosse double dip at The Nest on Saturday, and Team Lowco’s Wes Kerr was there to see the Hilton Head High girls continue their hot streak with a 16-10 win over Academic Magnet. Maddie Massey scored four goals and added an assist while Veronica Markowitz and Sofia Cavano each added a hat trick and an assist for the Seahawks, who have won three straight and are 4-0-1 in their last five. Tough test at home tonight against Class 5A Chapin and a big trip to Lucy Beckham on Thursday.

The Seahawk boys found themselves in a donnybrook with perennial power Bishop England, and Hilton Head took a one-goal lead into halftime but couldn’t sustain the success on the attack, managing only two second-half goals as the Bishops buckled down for a 10-9 win. Lucas Thibodeau had two goals and three assists, Jackson Olander scored a hat trick, and Jacob Martín added two goals and two assists to lead the Seahawks. A strong Lucy Beckham squad visits The Nest for a key matchup Thursday.

The USCB Sand Sharks had to push back the start of their Peach Belt Conference baseball and softball series this weekend, but the Sand Sharks were back in action Sunday with a pair of doubleheaders against the Augusta Jaguars.

The Sand Shark softball team split its double dip at Augusta, letting a late lead slip away in a 5-4 walk off loss in the opener before putting up five runs in the first inning and hanging on in a 9-8 nailbiter in the nightcap. Jaden Goodwin had a monster day at the plate, going 5-for-7 with two doubles, a homer, three runs, and four RBIs, and catcher Addie Reynolds caught fire again, blasting homers in both games. Rubber match today at noon, and it’s a big one for the Peach Belt standings.

A strong Jaguars pitching staff stymied the Sand Shark baseball team’s lineup in a doubleheader sweep Sunday in Hardeeville, as Augusta jumped out to early leads in both games and rode strong performances on the mound to 6-2 and 6-1 victories. Game 3 on tap at 1 p.m. Monday in The Ville.

And the dream of competing at the next level moved one step closer to reality for seven more student-athletes from the Lowco last week. They had back-to-back signing days at Hampton County, where a trio of track stars and a football standout commemorated their college choices. Mekhi Davis made it official he will run with the Thundering Herd at Marshall, while fellow track athletes Ka’dejah Smoak and Ziy’kila Henderson stayed in-state with Allen and Columbia College, and linebacker Cody Segars will strap on the pads at Greensboro College.

A trio of Beaufort Eagles celebrated signing day on Friday, with football stars Adrian Lamb and Dorell DePass heading to Georgia Military College and Limestone, while multi-sport standout Dom Camacho has opted to play baseball while attending Ferrum College.

Congrats to all. We look forward to seeing what you do while repping the Lowco at the next level.

We’ll look back on the biggest headlines from the weekend and round up the results from a busy Monday night on the LowcoSports scene live at 10 p.m. on the LowcoSports Lowdown. Plus, you never know who will stop by to join the conversation. Find it on the Lowco Media Network on YouTube or on our social media feeds.
