Landsharks ready to earn titles in fall sports

Mt. Pleasant – After waiting their time to become fully-fledged as an athletic program, Oceanside Collegiate is ready to make some noise on the Class AA state playoffs for fall sports.
Oceanside, now in its third year as a school, had a two-year waiting period when joining the South Carolina High School League before they could compete for region titles or participate in the state playoffs in most sports. That waiting period is over and the school can now compete for titles in the 2018-19 school year.
The fall sports teams at OCA are working hard to earn their spot in the postseason and it appears most, if not all, of their fall teams will compete in the playoffs.
Of course, the girls golf team is the defending state champion in Class AA and is currently ranked as the top team in the state. They did not have to wait two years to compete for a state title.
The volleyball team, under new coach Amir Khaledi, already has reeled off five straight wins in region 6-AA and is 19-8 overall on the season.
One of the key performers for the Landsharks is junior Olivia Yarborough, who leads the team with 158 kills while adding 33 service aces and 85 digs. Sophomore Taylor Hills has 120 kills and 38 aces while sophomore Reese Vorster has 66 kills and 20 blocks.
Junior setter Sophie Meredith has 411 assists while contributing 54 aces and 101 digs. Senior Sierra Wolter has 155 digs.
Chad Grier’s football program is looking to contend for the region title as well. The Landsharks are 4-1 on the season and the region title should come down to a game with Timberland in a few weeks.
The Landsharks are getting great offensive balance with many contributors. Senior Richard Hurteau has thrown for nearly 400 yards and three touchdowns. Senior Zion Coker and junior Keegan Williams are both closing in on 300 yards rushing.
Heading up a strong receiving corps are seniors Beau Singer, Sims Bennett, Gibson Marsh and junior Walker Rhue.
On the defense, senior Caleb Calandra is the leader with 23 tackles 5.5 tackles for loss and 3.5 sacks. Junior defensive lineman Ronald Shephard has more than 20 tackles, as does senior defensive back Jakari Moultrie.
