CCU women’s lacrosse
• Coastal Carolina 16, (at) Presbyterian 15 | Keri White had four goals, Paige Timberg had three and Rachel Waldron added two to lead the Chants to their first Big South victory.
Kimmy DeLonge notched six points, netting two goals and adding four assists for Coastal (4-6, 1-0).
High school boys lacrosse
•(At) Socastee 18, Bluffton 3
| Nick Borriello had a hat trick and four assists, Jiovany Rendon scored four goals, and the Braves rolled past Bluffton.
Socastee coach Matt Fox believes his team may make it the state playoffs, but isn’t certain.
“We’re on the bubble,” he said. “It’s kind of like the NCAA bracket. The top eight seeds from the Lower State get in and we play a pretty tough schedule. The teams we lost to are amongst the top 10 in the state. I’d like to say we’re about a 50-50 shot. There are some teams in the midlands with a better record, just not better in the power rankings.”
Matt Chatfield had two goals and one assist, along with Daquon Brown and Conor O’Brien scoring two goals apiece for the Braves. Nick Goolsby, Mike Alessi, JoJo Richards, Tim Young and Wayne Bauerle had one goal each and goalkeeper Joe Williams recorded six saves.
The Braves (6-5) will find out on Monday if they are eligible for postseason play, and Fox said his squad will be ready for the call.
“Absolutely [we’ll be ready],” he said. “We’ll play Wando most likely. We played them twice and lost two tough games but if we make it, we’ll be ready to play them on Tuesday.”
