May River wins state championships

May River High School in Bluffton might be a new school, but the Sharks proved their mettle in the Class 3A boys’ soccer playoffs and state track meet.

May River won 6-2 against Indian Land on May 11 at Itmo’s W.C. Hawkins Stadium. The school’s boys track and field team was victorious on the same day at Spring Valley High School. These are the first state titles in the short three-year history of the school.

In Class 4A boys track and field, Beaufort High School won its second straight championship and finished with 93 points, while Hilton Head Island High School was second with 57. Hilton Head standout Sam Gilman closed out his stellar high school career by winning the 800 and 1,600.
