State Recap 2/25: Hilton Head boys move on to Final Four for first time in 40 years


Basketball courts fell quiet across Georgia as the GHSA and GISA playoffs took a one-day reprieve after a loaded first round, but the same was not true in South Carolina.

In front of a raucous Eagle’s Nest crowd, the Hilton Head Island Seahawks defeated the Myrtle Beach Seahawks, 60-43, in the Elite Eight round of the SCHSL’s Class 4A boys basketball bracket. The win gave Hilton Head its first trip to the Final Four in 40 years.

Meanwhile, a pair of Low Country teams put their seasons on the line in the SCISA AA girls bracket. Beaufort Academy fell just shy against Palmetto Christian, 50-49, despite being down by as many as 17 points in the third quarter.

Hilton Head Christian Academy’s girls cruised to victory against Orangeburg Prep, 65-35. The Eagles will play Palmetto Christian on Saturday for their third consecutive state title.
