Bonner, who transferred to the school from Sumter prior to this season, averaged 15 points and 9.5 rebounds for the Tigers. He was named the Region VI-AAAA player of the year and to the Class AAAA All-State team.
Smith recovered from a dislocated elbow to lead Socastee to the third round of the Class AAA playoffs. Despite missing several games early with the injury, she averaged 14 points and 10 rebounds per game this season for the Braves.
Coastal Carolina men’s golfer Easton Renwick shot two career-low rounds and won a three-way playoff by sinking a 30-foot putt on the third hole at the Charleston Shootout, played Monday and Tuesday at the par-72, 6,756-yard Links at Stono Ferry.
Also shooting 216 and participating in the playoff were Clemson’s Hayden Garrett (76-67-73) and College of Charleston’s John Duke Hudson (74-68-74).
Renwick, a former Socastee High student, carded a career-low, 4-under-par 68 in the opening round Monday, tying for sixth-best single round on the CCU single round and tying for the fourth-best overall round. The sophomore played a portion of his second round Monday before darkness halted play. He finished his second round Tuesday with a 1-under par 71, which tied his previous best-career round.
Kevin Vanden Heuvel joined Renwick as Coastal’s only other participant at the Charleston Shootout. The junior tied for 39th with a 12-over par 228 (77-74-77).
Tyler Wood picked up the win as he tossed five scoreless innings and struck out two.
