Teammates Corey Morrison (17:31) was 37th, Corey Falco (18:05) placed 64th, Hunter Brown (18:22) finished 80th and Noah Krechel (19:09) to give the Sharks a 10th-place showing with 307 team points.

The Myrtle Beach boys turned in a 20th-place finish with 499 points, led by freshman Ethan Epstein’s (17:47) 45th-place showing. The young Seahawks saw sophomores Mehrzad Namiranian (18:10) come in 69th and Jimmy Recinos (18:42) finish 100th, eighth-grader Miguel Garcia (19:25) place 127th and freshman John Chambers (20:13) place 158th to set the tone for future success.

The St. James girls (379 points) were the top local finishers in 3A with an 11th-place showing. The Lady Sharks were led by Samantha Cunningham (20:52) in 44th, Kelsey Glover (21:26) in 58th, Karleigh Jones (22:26) in 88th, Natalie Feagin (22:30) in 91st and Nicole Matthews (22:41.72) in 98th place.
