Oceanside Collegiate captures Lower State title

MOUNT PLEASANT, SC (WCSC) - A first time for one, old hat for another: Oceanside Collegiate and Bishop England will play for a state title in their respective classes Saturday after both captured a lower state title Monday night.

The Landsharks made school history with their 3-0 win over Gray Collegiate in the 2A match. It it’s the first lower state title in the first year they’ve been eligible for the postseason.

The War Eagles gave them a run in the third set. Gray Collegiate needed just one more point several times to win the set. But Oceanside battled back and closed out the match with a 27-25 win.

Bishop England needed four sets to beat Battery Creek in the 3A final. The Battling Bishops are seeking their record 19th straight state championship Saturday. They’ll face Powdersville at 2:30 pm.

The Landsharks will play at noon. All five matches will be at White Knoll High School near Columbia.
