Summerville – The calendar has flipped into October and in SCISA athletics that means the postseason is not far off.

Pinewood Prep’s fall sports athletes are working hard to be peaking during the month of October. State titles in swimming, volleyball, girls tennis, girls golf and cross country will be decided during the month, with football playoffs set to begin in the first week of November.

The football team had Pinewood Prep will likely be a part of the postseason but has four key games remaining in the regular season. The Panthers carried a 3-3 overall record into their October 6th matchup against Wilson Hall.

Senior running back/linebacker Matthew Latham is having a strong season. He leads the team in rushing with 656 yards and 12 touchdowns through six games. Senior Austin Murphy is next in rushing with 300 yards. He also is a starter defensively.

Pinewood Prep’s volleyball team is competing well under first-year head coach Amir Khaledi. Though not quite ready to contend with perennial SCISA AAA powers Porter-Gaud and Ashley Hall, the Panthers are handling the competition against other programs very well.

Among the team leaders and top performers this fall are Anna Kind, Emma Robertson, Mary Grace Robertson, Elizabeth Hansen, Meaghan Veale, Jayden Weston and Sydney Pritchard.

The girls’ golf team will compete in the state tournament on October 9th in Conway, South Carolina. Members of the team include Taylor Butler, Carla Correa, Zoe Garcia, Lindsey Gilmer, Autumn Jordan, Aubrey Merryman, Anna Parker, Leighanna Sawyer and Malia Williams.

The cross country teams are working hard to earn qualifying spots in the SCISA state meet in late October.

The boys’ team is quite young this fall, led by sophomore Canon McConnell. Seventh-graders Hughston Reagin, Grant Brasher and Tyler Good are the next three top runners. Pushing for a spot in the top four are eighth-graders Patrick Greenstreet and Brett Reed, and seventh-grader Nate Gross.

Senior Isabelle Greenstreet is the top runner on the girls team this fall. Freshman McKenna Zielke and Isabelle Kay are running second and third in the order, with eighth-grader Mary Kate McConnell and junior Kaitlin Noack competing in the top five.

Competing on the girls’ tennis team this fall are Jessica Osborne, Victoria Vietri, Elizabeth Hylton, Abigail Walker, Hannah Rodgers, Ellie Rodgers, Ailish Conley, Antonia Henn-Anschuetz and Abbey Martichenko.

Hannah Rodgers is the only senior on the team and Osborne, a seventh-grader, plays number one singles.
