Saints go down swinging; Green caps stellar career

The Christian Academy of Myrtle Beach boys basketball team saw its season come to a close in the SCISA Class 2A state semifinals on Thursday, but the Saints didn’t go down without a fight. Trailing by double digits for most of the night, Christian Academy put together a fierce fourth-quarter comeback before falling 71-66 to Hilton Head Prep at the Sumter Civic Center. The Saints scored more... 

Boys Hoops: Saints reach state semis; Tigers ousted

The Conway High boys basketball team’s record-setting season came to a halt in the third round of the Class 5A playoffs on Tuesday night. The Tigers suffered a 61-49 defeat to the host Wildcats following the program’s first share of a region title in more than a half-century. Conway was led by Tonka Hemingway with 17 points, Timothy Steele with 13, and James Bellamy with 10. The Tigers... 

Lady Seahawks’ lock-down defense nets state semi bid

A.C. Flora missed a couple shots. Then a couple more. They added a few turnovers. It was clear that one of the better scoring teams in the state was not having a great offensive night. Myrtle Beach’s defensive was largely responsible for that, and now the Seahawks are headed back to lower state championship game yet again. Coach Jennifer Dennison’s team defeated the Falcons 51-28 Monday in... 

Boys Hoops: Tigers win again; MB falls at Wilson

Not all that long ago, the Conway basketball team was among the first teams in the area to be eliminated from the playoffs each year, if it qualified for the postseason at all. How quickly that has changed. The Tigers defended home court on Saturday, beating James Island 53-40. With the victory, they’ll be the final Horry County boys program still playing, having reached the third round of the... 

Girls Hoops: Socastee, CF eliminated; MB dominates

Socastee predicates everything it does on defense. But the Braves still needed some offense to go along with it. The Region VI-5A champs were upset at home in the second round of the state playoffs on Friday, losing 34-26 to James Island in a game coach Kelly Lewis wishes she had back. “We’re a defensive team. Holding a team to 34 points, that should be good enough to win,” Lewis said. Instead,... 

Boys Hoops: Tigers, Tonka win at buzzer; MB tops SA

When Conway football coach Carlton Terry talks about Tonka Hemingway putting himself in position to go wherever he wants, he’s talking about the standout defensive lineman’s college options. When Conway basketball coach Mike Hopkins says something similar, he’s talking about success on the basketball court. For the second game in a row — the two biggest of the year to date for the Tiger... 

Girls Hoops: CF advances; Braves survive Shark scare

Carolina Forest wasn’t supposed to be here, hosting another playoff game. The Panthers were too small, didn’t have a deep enough bench and were still learning how to play without last year’s impressive senior class. And during an ugly first half against White Knoll Tuesday night, it looked like the ride would end in the opening round. Then Ally Niles started throwing up at halftime and everything... 

Tigers, Lady Braves enter playoffs as lone top seeds

It took an extra day to materialize. There was a large-scale conference call. Countless texts exchanged between the Region VI-5A athletics directors and a whole slew of phone calls with debates happening on either end of the line. Certainly, the process to determine which team — Conway or West Florence — would ultimately end up with the No. 1 seed was anything but smooth. But what immediately... 

Eastside halts NMB’s run in Class 4A state final match

North Myrtle Beach’s historic wrestling season ended with the Chiefs focused on one word: Finish. The Chiefs’ first-ever trip to the state duals championship ended with a resounding 66-15 loss to Eastside in the 4A finals, but the youth-laden team with a first-year coach turned its thoughts to the future soon after accepting the state runner-up trophy at Airport High School. “I take a lot... 

Chiefs charge past Eagles, shoot for first state crown

For the first time in a dozen year, the North Myrtle Beach High wrestling team is headed to the SCHSL state team championships. Now the Chiefs hope to bring home the first team state title in program history.
