Myrtle Beach makes history with sweep of Lower State

mbvol-celebrateThe Myrtle Beach High volleyball team had it “made” in Tuesday night’s Class 4A Lower State title match. More specifically, the Seahawks made some history, made the state championship, and made quick work of visiting Lugoff-Elgin with a 3-0 sweep.

Myrtle Beach, which hasn’t lost a set since a 3-1 win over St. James on Oct. 4, posted its sixth consecutive straight-sets victory in its first-ever Lower State title at home, sending the Seahawks to Saturday’s Class 4A state championship showdown. The Seahawks will face Aiken, the winner of the Upper State championship over Pickens, on Saturday at Dutch Fork High.

Myrtle Beach appeared in danger of dropping its first set in more than a month in the opener as Lugoff-Elgin battled to a  19-18 advantage, but the Seahawks scored seven of the final nine points to close out a 25-21 win. They kept the momentum rolling, dominating the second set by a 25-9 score and closing out the match with a 25-20 victory in the finale.

Myrtle Beach owned the net, with Gracie Davis making 17 kills, Cassie Runyan making 16 kills, a block and an ace, Darby Sheets tallying 11 kills, 11 service points and three aces, and Lauren Arnold making three block shots and two kills. Danni Hix had 36 assists, 10 service points and an ace, Meghan McKewan had nine service points and two aces, and Lexi Watts had 15 digs.
