Myrtle Beach – The month of April is quite important for high school spring sports teams that hope to make the state playoffs.

But before any team can point to the last month of the regular season, they must first take care of their early business in March.

The soccer and lacrosse teams at Myrtle Beach High are doing just that. With a week of play left in March, Myrtle Beach’s boys and girls soccer teams are looking like region title contenders.

The boys team won five of their first eight matches overall, with a tie, and opened region 6-AAAA play with three consecutive wins. The Seahawks have put together a balanced effort, scoring goals and limiting their opponents opportunities.

Senior captain Sam Coughlin, a striker, is out of the gate with a strong performance, scoring eight goals in the first eight matches. Coughlin is getting plenty of help on the offensive end.

Sophomores Dwayne Price and Harrison Hamilton each have scored three goals early. Senior Coby Arambula, another captain, has added two goals and three assists. Freshman Matti Ott also has two early scores with three assists while sophomore Flavio Topllari has a pair of goals and two assists as well. Freshman Lane Greenlee scored two early goals as well.

Senior Max Davila gives Myrtle Beach solid leadership in goal. Senior John Emory Pruett is a solid backup in the net.

Senior captain Frantz Nati anchors the defensive backfield for the Seahawks. Other key defenders include seniors John Morris and Farriduu Sayfiddinov, and juniors Nick Bell and John Phillips.

The girls soccer team also won their first three region 6-AAAA contests, adding to a 7-2-1 start overall. The region wins came against Hartsville, Darlington and Wilson. They also have wins over Nation Ford, St. James, York and Bluffton.

Sophomore Hanna Wiseman is the team’s top offensive threat with 12 early goals. Sophomore Maggie Lambert has added five goals and three assists while junior Wendy Arneberg has three early goals. Seven other players have scored one goal.

The boys lacrosse team is 5-2 overall and 1-1 in region play as of March 21st. The Seahawks have wins over Bluffton, St. James, Socastee, North Myrtle Beach and Waccamaw. Early losses came to May River and Academic Magnet.

 Senior Bishop Anderson has scored 10 goals early on. Junior Tyler Flannelly has seven goals while freshman Brayden Bushnoe has six goals and eight assists.
