Hilton Head – While only one team managed to win a state championship, the spring sports teams at Hilton Head Christian were in major contention in several other sports during the 2018 season.

The lone state champion came in boys soccer where the Eagles made it two in a row with a championship game win over Oakbrook Prep. Coach Dylan Curtis, the High School Sports Report’s SCISA Class AA coach of the year, guided a veteran group through a tough schedule and finished on top.

Leading the way was senior Evan Berkner, named the Class AA player of the year by the High School Sports Report. Berkner is joined on the all-state list by Lukas O’Grady, Matthew McCutchen and Carson Webster. O’Grady, the keeper, and Webster are both juniors and will return as leaders next year.

The team finished with a 13-3-1 record this spring.

Earning all-state honors in girls soccer this spring were Sydney Camp and Margaret Donaldson. Both players were named all-state by the SCISA office and the High School Sports Report.

The baseball team made a run at the AA state title before falling in a semi-final round playoff series to eventual state champion Pee Dee Academy. The Eagles posted an 18-5 record overall this spring.

Leading the team this season were senior all-state selections John Blackshire and Michael Graupner. Both earned all-region honors, along with John Burke, Dargan Cherry and JD Monts.

The boys tennis team reached the AA state finals before losing to rival Hilton Head Prep in the finals. Alex Likins earned all-state honors as the team’s number one singles player. Brent Geist played number two. Dylan Sampson occupied the number three singles slot and Olivia Rose Becker played number four in the finals.

Rounding out the singles ladder in the finals were Walker Mikkelson at five and Chandler Edmonds at six.

Also finishing as the state runner-up in AA was the golf team. The Eagles contended for the title before coming up three strokes short of winning behind Hilton Head Christian.

All was not lost, however, as Danny Azallion earned state championship gold by winning medalist honors with a two-round total of 145. He also was named the Class AA player of the year by the High School Sports Report.

Teammate Max Green was named SCISA all-state by the High School Sports Report as well.
