James Island – The high school winter sports season is in full swing across the state and before long teams will be competing in postseason competition.

The winter sports athletes at James Island Charter High School have been putting in the work for two months and hope to a part of the playoff fun in mid-February.

The basketball teams are expected to be competing for top four finishes in region 7-AAAAA, which would gain them a spot in the state AAAAA playoffs.

The boys team entered play on January 21 with a 6-6 overall record and a 1-0 start in region play. Coach Stan Wilkins has only three seniors on the roster this season and several underclassmen have taken on the leadership roles.

The girls team is off to a 9-6 start overall and also won their region opening game. The team is led by seniors Augusta Dixon and Nabrayja Washington. Dixon is averaging 16.3 points and 10.8 rebounds per contest while Washington adds 12.2 points and 6.4 rebounds per game.

Sophomore Tia Lucas is averaging seven points and seven steals per game, adding 6.1 rebounds, while senior guard Emily Runey adds 7.1 points and 3.8 assists per game.

Juniors Kayla Holseberg and Madalyn Jones each add nearly five points per game while senior Elizabeth Edwards hauls in 5.7 rebounds per game.

On the wrestling mat, James Island finished second in the Charleston County meet, finishing behind Wando in the team standings.

Ron German won the county title in the 138-pound weight class and several grapplers were runner-up in their respective weight classes.

Earning second-place finishes were Adam Colvin (106), William Murray (145), Nate Catalang (160) and Jaquan Wallace (182).
