Hilton Head – The cross country teams at Hilton Head Prep capped off their 2017 season competing in the SCISA state AA championship meet on October 28 in Columbia.

Neither team contended for the state championship, either as a team or individually, but every runner put forth their best effort on the state’s biggest stage.

On the boys team, the top finisher was Beckett Jones, who crossed the finish line in 30th place overall. Aidan Sanz was the next Dolphin to finish, scoring in 43rd place while Clayman Tang was right behind, scoring in 44th place.

Harry Hannah scored in 47th pace and Justin Stone finished 51st. Also competing but not figuring into team scoring were Matthew Monts and Griffin Jones.

The top finisher from the Hilton Head Prep girls team was Elizabeth Eisinger, who scored in 30th-place. Julia Gigante scored 44th and Olivia Light scored 47th for the team scores. Jackie Sullivan scored 48th and Scout Yokley was 56th overall. Courtney Doyle also competed in the race.

The volleyball team wrapped up its season with a 7-11 overall record this fall. The team was led by five seniors – Keira Wojcikiewicz, Alana McCallion, Sarah Orie, Kelsey O’Connor and Olivia Mitchell. O’Connor was an all-region selection this fall.

Juniors on the team this season included Kaitlyn Adkins and Sarah Griz. Rounding out the team were sophomore Chloe Johnson, freshman Grace Lanier, and eighth-grader Ashley Wilmot.

The girls tennis team qualified for the SCISA AA state playoffs but was knocked off in the first-round by Christian Academy of Myrtle Beach. The team finished with a 9-4 record with no seniors on the roster.

Members of the team this fall included juniors Evie Snipes and Holland Traver; sophomore Annabelle Sale; freshman Lauren Harvey; eighth-graders Valerie Covington, Lily Perez, Kaylee Zhu and Cassie Cohen; and seventh-graders Chloe Marko and Molly Rankin.

\ The football team closed out the 2017 season with a loss to Hilton Head Christian, ending its season at 1-8. The lone victory was a 29-14 win over Palmetto Christian. This year’s team had only four seniors, and with experience returning next season, should be improved.

The four departing seniors from the program are linemen Trey Speer and Davis Puckey, running back Tate Wilkinson, receiver Kwame Agyei-Minta.
