Beaufort – While the football team has stumbled a bit after a 3-0 start, the rest of the fall sports teams at Beaufort High are continuing to compete at a high level.
All of the teams should contend for a region title this fall, including the football team. The Eagles have lost three straight since their positive start but Beaufort appears to be a strong contender for the region championship when that portion of the schedule begins.
The girls tennis team is off to a 2-1 start in region play. The region favorite is perennial state contender Hilton Head but the Eagles appear to be a strong second-place team.
McKenzie Daniel is playing number one singles for the team this fall. Caroline Louw is playing two singles and Cypress Daniel plays in the three slot.
Elizabeth Holloway plays four singles and Lucy Aydelette is playing in the fifth singles position. Working at number two doubles are Sophie McMullen and Claire Bowden.
The girls golf team is working to find four scorers but three consistent performers have been Izzy Stone, Amelia McKnight and Elissa Hopper.
The Beaufort volleyball team enters October with a 10-13 record overall but is off to a 2-0 start in region play. Sophomore Hannah Merchant is a key player, leading the team with 110 kills. She also has 91 defensive digs, 34 service aces and 17 blocks.
Sophomore Chase Vaigneur has tallied 95 kills, 140 digs and 26 aces while junior McCayla Winningham has 86 kills and 38 blocks at the net. Junior setter Madison Gallion has 290 assists and 53 aces while senior Hailey Lamar has 68 kills and 20 blocks.
Also contributing are juniors Peyton Polk (119 digs) and Zyaire Middleton (107 assists).
Beaufort recently competed in the region swim meet. Lily Bostwick was the region champion in the 50-freestyle and finished third in the 100-freestyle. Anne Watts Tuckwiller was fourth in the 50 and fourth in the breaststroke.
For the boys team, Samuel Marrero won the 100-meter backstroke and was second in the 50 freestyle. James Stone was second in the 100 butterfly and fourth in the 50 while Caden Eby was fourth in the butterfly.
Witt Compton finished fourth in the 100 freestyle and Allen Szczepek was second in the backstroke.
In cross country, sophomore Marlon Belden is the top runner for the boys team and will be a strong candidate for AAAA all-state honors. Nash Mills, Max Davis and Charlie Bennett are the next three runners, all under 20 minutes.
Junior Shannon Smith sets the pace for the girls team, with Charlize Anita, Anna Brown, Isabel Vega and Taylor Maddox competing to be in the top four.
