Myrtle Beach – The always competitive and ultra-productive spring sports program continued to shine at Myrtle Beach High School during the 2018 spring campaign.

Across the board, Myrtle Beach spring teams competed for region 7-AAAA titles and advanced into the postseason playoffs.

With team success comes individual awards and Myrtle Beach athletes raked in plenty of postseason honors on the region and all-state level.

The last team competing in the spring was the boys golf team, a state title contender in Class AAAA this spring. The team competed in the Class AAAA state tournament in mid-May and for the second straight year came up as the state runner-up. Lancaster won the state team title with a combined score of 600 with the Seahawks finishing just 10 strokes back.

Holden Grigg shot 147 to finish fourth individually, good enough to earn all-state honors. Doc Jarman was two strokes back, finishing in a tie for eighth, which also earned all-state recognition. Keegan Vaugh shot 158 to finish in a tie for 36th overall while Dalton Todd’s 160 was good enough for 40th-place.

The softball team won the region title and coach Meredith Jiorle was voted the region coach of the year.

Pitcher Carly Grace Bodge was named to the Class AAAA all-state team and was selected to play in the North-South all-star game on June 13-14. Bodge was 17-6 this season with a 1.20 earned run average and batted .313.

In addition to Bodge, other softball all-region picks included McKenzie Coble, Stevie-Leigh Parker, Cayce Roberts, Lindsey Coble, Madison Needle, Dakota Hansen and Madison Gore.

In baseball, senior shortstop Luke Edwards was named the region 7-AAAA Co-Player of the Year and also earned all-state accolades. Edwards also participated in the SC Select all-star games, played two weeks ago in Lexington.

Other baseball all-region picks included Jonah McElheney, Jayce Allen, Colbey Ragan, Davis Goodroe, and Tyler Burgess.

Tristan Gordon was voted the region player of the year in girls soccer. Gordon, also an all-state selection, finished with 138 career goals. Girls coach Blair Mueller was voted the coach of the year in region seven.

All-region selections included Josie Posma, Molly Rion, Annamarie Puglia, Wendy Arneberg, Taylor Pirttima, Maggie Lambert, Hanna Weissman and Charis Dorman.

The spring also included a few college signings. Robert Swanson signed with Furman in men’s basketball. Brady Vest signed in basketball to Grinnell College and basketball player O’Neill McBride will attend Fork Union Military Academy.

Janell and Jalah Horton will continue their women’s basketball career together at Coker College in Hartsville.
