Hilton Head – With a roster that includes only three seniors this season, the Hilton Head Prep boys basketball team is off to a 6-0 start and looking to be a contender in the SCISA Class AA ranks this winter.

The Dolphins have been impressive early. After winning their season opener by four points, the Dolphins have posted five consecutive wins by double-figure margins.

Junior Avern Montague has been the team’s most consistent offensive performer, scoring in double figures in all six games, but the roster has depth and is getting solid contributions from several players.

The team’s senior players this winter include Ian Plummer, Aidan Sanz and Nick Lalli.

The bulk of the roster is comprised of juniors, led by Montague. Logan Blair, Hunter Hopman, Ben Eisinger, Jack Braun and Haddith Stewart are the juniors on the roster. Stewart has posted several games of double figure scoring and is a leading rebounder.

Sophomores Tyler Rice, Tyrone Callaway and Stone McDonald also see considerable playing time. Callaway as an early season high of 17 points in a win over Savannah Country Day. McDonald has reached double figures in points and is another key performer on the boards.

The junior varsity boys team also has opened the season well, winning their first four games of the season.

Leadership on the junior varsity team comes from three seniors – Felipe Mendoza, Luke Bennett and Christian Britschge. The lone eighth-grader is guard Ryan Mikell while the roster include large freshman class of 11 athletes.

Freshmen include Carson King, Max Marko, Luke Foley, Jack Clarke, Jack Barney, Thomas Stauffer, Harrison Green, Jaiden Hrobar, William Gray, Jake Lopko and Paul Carrabba.

The girls varsity team at Hilton Head Prep is considerably younger this season. Coach Dan Sheehan has only two seniors on the roster – Alana McCallion and Julia Gigante. The lone juniors are Courtney Doyle and Olivia Light while the rest of the roster is made up of sophomores, freshmen and eighth-graders. Prep does not have a junior varsity team.

 Sophomores include Kiersten Clark, Jordan Lalli, Mackenzie Joyner, Ella Alsko and Noelle Saylor. The lone freshman is Paolee Ledee, with eighth-graders Ella Clark and Annie Braun rounding out the roster.

Hilton Head Prep opened the season with a 1-4 record.
