Justin Jarrett: LowCo Lights Spring Weekend | April 15, 2024 | LowCo Sports


And with Scottie Scheffler slipping into another green jacket Sunday evening in Augusta, that means one thing — it’s time to get your plaid on!

It’s the best week of the year on Hilton Head Island, as the RBC Heritage presented by Boeing returns to Harbour Town Golf Links and brings perhaps the most star-studded field yet.

And as of Monday morning, that field still included Scheffler, though the world is well aware by now that his wife Meredith is on baby watch, so we’ll understand if he has to run. Scheffler opened as the favorite to add a tartan jacket to his closet, but he will have competition from plenty of big-name stars including Rory McIlroy, Xander Schauffele, Patrick Cantlay, Collin Morikawa, Wyndham Clark, Jordan Spieth, and defending champion Matt Fitzpatrick, among many others.

And there’s no cut for this year’s signature event, so the world’s best will be here all week. Unless their wives go into labor, of course.

And Heritage week means it’s spring break for local schools, leaving us with a limited schedule of high school sports this week, but we had a busy Friday night on the LowcoSports scene.

Team Lowco’s Wes Kerr spent the afternoon in Sea Pines, taking in a SCISA baseball showdown between Hilton Head Prep and John Paul the 2nd. It was a defensive showcase with Prep’s Jackson Stanyard going the distance on the mound and striking out nine Golden Warriors to help the Dolphins hang on for a 3-2 win. Connor Campbell and Tyler Britschge each had two hits and Sammy Middleton drove in a run for Prep, which also routed St. Andrew’s in a doubleheader sweep Saturday.

In other baseball action, Patrick Henry routed Andrew Jackson with Sims Brunson tossing a complete game, Bluffton blanked Battery Creek 15-0 in three innings, and May River finished the sweep of Colleton County with a 10-1 win, as Tysen Brasington struck out eight over four innings and went 2-for-3 with an RBI and Joe Schroder was 2-for-2 with three RBIs.

Hilton Head Christian Academy’s baseball team hit the road to Columbia for a two-game set with Class 4A power A.C. Flora and came home with a split in two competitive games, falling 6-2 on Friday before beating the Falcons 5-3 on Saturday behind a terrific outing from left-hander James Crosby. Dylan Clark’s two-run blast ended up being the difference for the Eagles who look like a serious state championship contender in SCISA 3A.

May River’s softball team is also gearing up for a potential postseason run, and the Sharks had the bats ringing this weekend. May River racked up 19 hits in a 26-8 win at Hilton Head on Friday and jumped on Colleton County early in an 11-2 win Saturday to keep pace in the Region 7-4A race. Allie Belcher put up a ridiculous stat line Friday, going 5-for-5 with two doubles, a triple, a homer, four runs, and eight RBIs. Wow. Olivia Nagel was the star against the Cougars, tossing a complete game and going 2-for-4 with a double and two RBIs.

The USCB baseball and softball teams had big Peach Belt Conference series on tap this weekend, as well, and the Sand Shark baseball team kept itself in position to sneak into the PBC tournament by sweeping a three-game set at Claflin in dominant fashion. USCB racked up 49 runs in the series and smashed four home runs — its first four of the season — with Julian Galassi going deep twice. One more home series this weekend against Flagler before a three-game set at USC Aiken, where the final playoff spot is likely to be on the line.

The Sand Shark softball team has no margin for error left going into its final PBC series at Georgia College this weekend, but USCB is still alive thanks to a thrilling comeback win in Saturday’s series opener against Columbus State. The Sand Sharks were down 6-0 before rallying for an 8-6 win on Devon Weller’s walkoff home run. Sand Sharks need a sweep this weekend and some help in the form of USC Aiken sweeping Georgia Southwestern. Stranger things have happened in sports.

We’re taking the rest of the week off from Last Night in the Lowco, but we’ll still be live nightly at 10 p.m. for the LowcoSports Lowdown, keeping you posted on the scores and stats from sporting events around the Lowco as well as bringing you a daily report from Harbour Town.
