Hilton Head Island High School brought home its fourth straight Class 3-A Director's Cup in June. If it wins a fifth next June, Saturday's results may have a lot to do with it.
The Seahawks have three state championships on the line in Columbia.
The boys and girls cross country teams are overwhelming favorites to repeat as champions on Saturday morning at the Sandhills Research Center.
And at 3:30 p.m. Saturday, the volleyball team will take on Pickens in a quest for the school's first title in that sport.
Never miss a local story.
After the volleyball team's dramatic 3-1 win over Aiken on Tuesday, Seahawks head coach Garrett Talarczyk couldn't control his excitement.
"I couldn't even tell you what happened. Everything was a blur," he said. "I knew it was going to be a battle. I couldn't sleep all weekend. They were just in the right spot at the right time a lot of the time. This is so awesome. These girls just played out of their minds."
They'll have to play out of their minds again Saturday to bring a championship back to the island. Defending champions Pickens (27-11) has 14 state titles to its credit.
Junior outside hitter Hannah Edelman has no reason to doubt her team.
"We're all-around good," she said. "We have defense, we have offense, we have great setters, we can serve aggressively."
As for the cross country teams, well, head coach Bill Wrightson admits that running is a "thing" at Hilton Head.
"Tradition has a way of following what you've done," he said. "The kids that come into our program, they're going to work hard, they know they're going to work hard, and they have great results."
While both teams are ranked No. 1 and dominated the Class 3-A Lower State qualifiers, the boys did so while resting their top six runners.
This year, Hilton Head's Ben Gilman leads the state's boys, who run at 10 a.m., with a top time of 15 minutes, 10 seconds, and the next six Seahawks runners are all inside the top 11 in the state.
The girls, whose chief rival for the title will be Eastside, run at 9 a.m.
The Seahawks are looking for a repeat of last year's sweep.
Hilton Head is one of just four schools that have won both titles on the same day -- Landrum ('09), Irmo ('77, '78, '79), Hilton Head Island ('09, '13), Mauldin ('83, '84, '94) -- and one of just three to do it more than once.
In a streak almost certain to continue, last season was the sixth consecutive year that both the boys and girls finished in the top two in the state.
"I don't think there's any school that has come close to that," Wrightson said after last year's finals. "It certainly speaks to the hard work that these kids do."
