The opening of the S.C. high school lacrosse state playoffs on Tuesday has Chapin on the minds of players at Hilton Head Island High School.
The boys team will host Chapin at 7 p.m., while the girls will play at Chapin at the same time.
Boys coach John Werner said he doesn't know much about the Eagles (6-7), but coming off back-to-back wins on the road against Waccamaw (19-0) and Socastee (14-9), the Seahawks (7-4) have "never played better all year."
"We don't know much about them," Werner said. We're just going to go play."
Werner said if Hilton Head Island plays its game, they should be fine.
"We've got to come out fast and ready to play," Werner said. "If we come out fast and ready to play, I'm not sure there's anybody who can beat us.
"There has been a core of solid juniors. A senior, Thomas Johnston, has really stepped up on attack. Thomas Farrell is an incredible leader. And we're all healthy now, a good unit. It's been a good year."
On the girls side, Seahawks coach Kathleen Marshall doesn't know much about her opponent, either. Just that it's going to be tough. Against common opponents Wando and J.L. Mann, the Eagles (7-5) fared better than the Seahawks (10-4).
Marshall said the Seahawks would have their work cut out for them after a week off and a long bus ride.
"We have to start fast right off the first draw and play aggressively," Marshall said. "The fundamental things that we don't always do, we have to. We need to double the ball in the midfield and force turnovers there. If we can be really aggressive on our defense and not get a lot of calls, we should be OK."
