info@islandpacket.comOctober 17, 2012 

Hilton Head Island High won the boys title and finished second in the girls competition at the Region 8-AAA cross country meet hosted by the Seahawks.

The boys had a perfect score of 15 and all five runners earned all-region honors. The Seahawks were followed by James Island, Hanahan, Stall and Berkeley.

Sean McMahon is the region champion, finishing first with a time of 16:55. An unattached Orangeburg-Wilkinson runner finished second, before Seahawks runners occupied the third through sixth spots.

The rest of the Seahawks' finishers were Copeland Hennesey,17:40; Noa Pagatpatan, 17:46; Jack Beattie, 17:48 and Sam Beattie, 17:50.

"We worked them hard in practice, knowing we were coming in as the favorite," Seahawks coach Bill Wrightson said, "so maybe their times weren't what they should have been, but they all ran pretty well."

On the girls side, Hilton Head Island finished second behind James Island.

Carley McGlinn (20:01) and Faith Lifer (20:02) finished second and third, respectively. They were joined by 12th-place finisher Rebeka Parent (21:20) on the all-region team.

Ciara McMahon (21:23) and Mallory Liggett (21:43) finished 13th and 14th, respectively.

The Seahawks will compete next in the Class 3-A Lower State Qualifier at 10 a.m. Saturday, Oct. 27 at the Sandhills Research Center in Columbia.
