Eagles sweep team titles at Marwin Kline Invitational


Beaufort High’s track and field team swept the boys and girls team titles and brought home eight individual titles from the Marwin Kline Invitational at Whale Branch on Saturday.

Jayla Daise won the discus and shot put for two of the Eagles’ six individual titles and placed second in the javelin as the BHS girls racked up 147.5 points to easily outpace runner-up May River (119) and Whale Branch (82).

Charlize Antia won the 800m and was runner-up in the 1,600, and Anna Lyles also made the podium twice, winning the pole vault and placing third in the 400 hurdles. Yzeult Antia (3200m) and Keasia Walker (long jump) also won gold for the Eagles. The third-place Warriors did not have a champ, but Grace Bing was second in the 100m hurdles and Whale Branch was runner-up in the 4×100 relay. Battery Creek’s Margaret Ames placed third in the pole vault.

Beaufort’s boys swept the relays and had a pair of individual champs in Charlie Bennett (800m) and Alvin Wilson (discus) to compile 134 points and edge Wade Hampton (120.5) with Hilton Head High (88) in third. Zyrin Odom fell short of gold but made the podium twice, finishing second in the 200m and third in the long jump, and Wilson also snagged third in the shot put.

Nash Mills provided a bright spot for the Eagles with a bronze in the 1,600 as he continues to work his way back from injuries suffered in a serious car accident last summer.

The host Warriors had one champion with Virginia Tech football signee Xavier Chaplin winning the shot put, and Battery Creek’s Tanner McCracken was third in the discus.
