Athlete of Week: Hix sets Seahawks up for success

For Myrtle Beach High junior setter Danni Hix, volleyball has always been a family affair. That’s why she has no problem sharing credit for her Mammy’s Kitchen Athlete of the Week award with both her natural-born relatives and her new teammates. “I learned a lot about volleyball from both my sister, Tara, and my mom (Dixie). They were my coaches for a while, and they were also setters...

Myrtle Beach makes history with sweep of Lower State

The Myrtle Beach High volleyball team had it “made” in Tuesday night’s Class 4A Lower State title match.

Seahawks seek to pack the house for Lower State final

The No. 1-ranked Myrtle Beach High girls volleyball team has played in its fair share of Lower State championship games in recent years, but never in its home gymnasium – until Tuesday. The Lady Seahawks have played in three of the last five Lower State title games, but this year they finally get to experience what it’s like to do so on their home floor and in front of a supportive... 

Seahawks shellack Sharks to stay unbeaten on season

No. 2-ranked Myrtle Beach entered their Friday night game undefeated. St. James came into the contest winless on the season. Predictably, the same was true at the end of the Seahawks’ 55-3 victory over the host Sharks. But it wasn’t all smooth sailing for the Seahawks (9-0 overall, 3-0 Region 7-4A), who were leading just 14-3 until the final minutes of the first half thanks to touchdown...

Seahawks, Chiefs advance to Lower State semifinals

The rivalry between local volleyball powers Myrtle Beach and North Myrtle Beach may be headed for a rematch in the Lower State final if both teams can continue their winning ways one more time.

Tennis: Seahawks soar into third round; Braves ousted

The Socastee High girls tennis season came to an end in dramatic fashion in Monday’s second round of the Class 5A state tournament, falling to visiting Summerville 4-3 at Prestwick Country Club. The top-seeded Lady Braves battled to the final match before being eliminated.

Tennis: MB, Socastee roll in opening round of playoffs

Despite a long layoff forced by Hurricane Matthew, the Myrtle Beach High girls tennis team showed they are ready to make a run at another state championship by rolling in the opening round of the Class 4A playoffs on Wednesday.
