Myrtle Beach was led at the net by Gracie Davis, Cassie Runyan and Darby Sheets with multiple kills. On the back row, Lexie Watts led the team in digs and Danni Hix in assists.

* Carolina Forest turned in a strong showing at the Sumter Invitational, going 7-1 in pool play with wins over Wilson Hall (2-0), Orangeburg-Wilkinson (2-0), Central (2-0) and a split with River Bluff (1-1).

The Panthers earned the No. 4 seed as they entered tournament play, defeating West Florence 2-0 and Wilson Hall 2-0 for the second time that day.

The Panthers faced River Bluff again in the semifinals. It was a hard-fought match but in the end River Bluff defeated the Panthers (1-2). Alexis Tomlin made the All-Tournament Team for helping to lead her team through the day.

* North Myrtle Beach lost two hard-fought matches against North Carolina powers Charlotte Hough and Hoggard from Wilmington on Saturday.

Charlotte Hough won 3-1 by scores of 25-13, 18-25, 25-22, and 25-15). Maggie Hash led the Lady Chiefs with 14 kills and Sydney Bellamy added six. Maddie Roy had 19 assist and Raegan Matney had 13.

“Hoggard is a very good team and we gave them a great match. This will certainly help us get better going into region play (Tuesday),” said coach Alex Sing.
