Soccer: Seahawks splash past Swansea; Braves wait

The top-seeded Myrtle Beach High boys soccer team gave up a rare goal in Thursday night’s rain-soaked second-round playoff game against visiting Swansea.

Socastee’s bats fall silent at worst time in loss to Gilbert

The Lady Seahawks (16-1)... 

Berkeley drops Braves into Lower State losers’ bracket

The Socastee High baseball team’s back is officially against the wall following a two-day duel with Berkeley in the first round of the Class 3A Lower State tournament.
