Walterboro – With about a month remaining in the regular season of the fall sports campaign, teams at Colleton County High are competing well against their region counterparts.
The football team has yet to play a region game but will close out the regular season with league games against Hilton Head, Bluffton and Beaufort. The Cougars enter an October 5th game against Camden County, Georgia with a 2-3 record overall. After losing their first three games of the season to Lakewood, White Knoll and Carolina Forest, the Cougars bounced back with wins over Orangeburg-Wilkinson and Ridgeland/Hardeeville entering a bye week.
Quarterback Edwardian Stansel is a first-year starter but has performed well overall. He has more than 200 yards passing in the first five games.
Leading the rushing attack early have been Shyheim Chisholm and Trakell Murray, while the top receivers have been Jalen Levine and Jeremiah Mosley.
Among the early leaders defensively are James Brown, Jaheim Black, Jaden Smith and Ja’Carre Stevens. Murry and Levine also play well defensively.
Jaymie Strickland heads up the girls tennis program this fall and her squad is hoping to earn a spot in the state playoff bracket.
E.K. Bell is currently playing number one singles, with Megan Dewitt handling number two singles. Kendall Bell plays three singles and Abigail Lee plays in the fourth spot. Rush Blackshear is currently playing five singles.
Forming the number two doubles team are Lo’vea Goodwin and Cooper Corbett.
The cross country teams have been busy during the month of September, challenging themselves in several events early on.
The top time posted by a member of the boys team is from sophomore Blaine Cook, who ran the 5K course at the Lake Murray Invitational in a time of 19:28. Hans Gabriel (21:43) and Wyatt O’Quinn (21:48) round out the top three so far this season.
Competing to be the fourth runner are Nathan Erwin, Evan Stroble, Tyler Scites and Raleigh Obenaus.
On the girls’ side, sisters Grayson Altman and Abigail Altman, both juniors, are the top two runners this fall. Grayson Altman’s time of 20:35 at the Lake Murray Invitational is the top team on the team this season. Abigail Altman has a season best of 21:33 at the Coaches Classic in early September.
Competing for the rest of the running order are Sierra Obenaus, Stacey Bennett, Kensley Dantzler and Kayla Dantzler.
