Lady Seahawks’ surprising playoff run stopped by O-W

mbghoops-42shootThe Myrtle Beach High girls basketball team’s surprisingly strong season came to an end in the Class 3A Lower State semifinals on Tuesday night with a 56-27 loss to top-seeded Orangeburg-Wilkerson.

The Lady Seahawks were overwhelmed by the visiting O-W squad, which advances to Saturday’s Lower State Final on Saturday at the Florence Civic Center.

Myrtle Beach finished the season with a 15-11 record and a Region 7-3A championship. But playoff experience might be the biggest accomplishment for the young Lady Seahawks, who have no seniors on the roster and are led primarily by freshmen and sophomores.

After starting the season 4-8, the light bulb came on for the youthful squad at the start of region play. Myrtle Beach won eight straight and 11 of its next 13 games overall before running into a veteran O-W team on Tuesday.

The Myrtle Beach girls had hoped to play the game as part of  Wednesday doubleheader with the boys team, which hosts Midland Valley at 7 p.m., but the schedule change was disallowed.
