The baseball team went 3-0 in district VI-AAAA, winning the district championship with a 9-7 win over Hartsville. The Eagles then entered the double-elimination four-team lower state final four bracket and the magic ran out. Beaufort ended its season with losses to Lugoff-Elgin and Hilton Head.

Two other seniors had productive seasons for Beaufort. Krislynn Coolong batted .351 with 25 RBI’s while Caroline O’Hara batted .321 with 19 RBI’s.

Earning all-region honors in boys’ tennis were Mitchell Russell and Griffin Stone.
