Justin Jarrett: LowCo Lights Basketball/Wrestling | Jan 15, 2024 | LowCo Sports


Bridge Bowl: Tacoya Heyward poured in 24 of her 31 points in the first half to lead the Bluffton girls to a 56-37 win over Hilton Head High as the Bobcats won their 10th straight game and improved to 14-1. Amirah Brown added 12 points for the Bobcats.

Bluffton’s boys were able to grind out a 45-39 win over the Seahawks to finish the sweep, as Jamari Stewart-Manning scored 13 points and Carnell Warren and Aedan McCarthy each added eight points and 12 rebounds for the Bobcats.

The HHCA girls continued their dominance in the series with a 62-21 victory over Prep as Mya Hutchinson put up 18 points and Devon Yarde added 10, but the home crowd had something to cheer about when Dolphins star Courtney Campbell scored her 1,000th point of her career. The junior scored 17 of the Dolphins’ 21 points.

The Boys' rematch of last year’s SCISA 3A state championship game, and the outcome was the same. Jason Britschge and Ben Frey each scored 11 points and Billy Barron added nine for the Dolphins, who used a dominant defensive effort to frustrate a talented HHCA team in a 50-35 victory.

John Paul the 2nd’s boys rolled to a 63-39 win over visiting Patrick Henry on Friday behind 19 points from Dante Aiken, and the Cross Stingrays blew out The Complete Student 83-23.

Among Saturday’s highlights, May River’s girls got back into action with a 53-31 win over St. Andrew’s, and Hampton County’s boys edged Whale Branch 50-46.

The USCB Sand Sharks were also at home Saturday with another strong Peach Belt Conference opponent visiting The Cove, and Georgia Southwestern escaped with a pair of victories over the Sand Sharks. Brielle Bartelt and Taniyah Bowman each scored 15 points for the USCB women, but the Hurricanes blew to an 86-48 win to drop the Sand Sharks to 0-4 in conference play.

The Sand Shark men were looking to get back to their winning ways after dropping two straight, and they held a 12-point first-half lead before the Hurricanes surged back and took over in the second half. USCB erased a nine-point deficit in the second half and regained the lead on a Qurahn Anderson dunk with just under 8 minutes left, and the lead changed hands twice more before Georgia Southwestern took the lead for good with just over 5 to play and held off a charge from the Sand Sharks down the stretch.

Larry Bulluck scored 14 points and Marcus Overstreet had 11 points and 11 boards along with four blocks to lead USCB, which travels to Georgia College on Wednesday.

It wasn’t all basketball this weekend, though, as the Lowco’s top high school wrestling teams converged on Bluffton High School on Saturday for the Bobcat Duals with the May River Sharks finishing 5-0 to take the title with a 40-23 victory over Stratford. Marcus Foulk, Walter Briones, Houston Rudisill, Dillon Seman, Will Mauro, and Beau Gwynn all went undefeated for the Sharks. Host Bluffton knocked off South Florence for third place and Hilton Head High took down John Paul the 2nd for fifth.

We dug deeper into the results and took a look at the junior varsity and middle school state qualifier meets on a new episode of the Lowco Grind presented by Reverence Wrestling Club. Dig in on the Lowco Media Network.

Speaking of Reverence Wrestling Club, it was the site of a two-day clinic with former Olympic wrestler and accomplished collegiate coach Ken Chertow, who gave world-class instruction to young wrestlers from throughout the Lowco and beyond with athletes traveling from as far away as Myrtle Beach and North Georgia for the opportunity.

It wasn’t the only group of Lowco athletes getting world-class training on Sunday, as the new Lowcountry Rush Lacrosse club held its initial clinic and tryout at May River High School with Premier Lacrosse League star Kieran McArdle at the helm. McArdle was a 3-time All-American at St. John’s and a three-time Major League Lacrosse all-star before leading the Philadelphia Waterdogs to the PLL title in 2022. Look out for big things from Lowcountry Rush.

And finally, the area’s top high school seniors got one last shot to show out on the football field in WSAV’s annual Blitz Border Bowl in Savannah. It was a tough outcome for Team Lowco, which fell 26-9 to the Coastal Empire all-stars, but it was a day to celebrate the culmination of their high school careers.
