The Myrtle Beach boys soccer team will officially enter the Class AAA playoffs as the No. 1 team in South Carolina.

The Seahawks, who begin the postseason at Doug Shaw Memorial Stadium against Lakewood on Tuesday, improved to 19-2-1 with a pair of lopsided victories last week. They won’t be the only area boys teams opening the playoffs with a state ranking.

Socastee, which won the Region VI-AAAA title and plays host to Lugoff-Elgin on Tuesday, is No. 9 in Class AAAA. North Myrtle Beach – No. 15 in Class AAA – heads to Crestwood; while Class AA No. 7 Waccamaw will open at home against Timberland.

Several local girls teams were also ranked in the most recent polls. Myrtle Beach was No. 4 in Class AAA, with North Myrtle Beach (No. 11) and St. James (No. 14) also included. Waccamaw came in at No. 5 in Class AA.

The girls playoffs started Monday evening.
