With half of the remaining Class AAA Lower State teams coming from Region VII, the local soccer scene could own major bragging rights after Wednesday night.

Area programs Myrtle Beach, North Myrtle Beach and St. James – as well as fellow region squad Wilson – have a chance, no matter how improbable, to do the unthinkable. That would require the three not named Myrtle Beach to win on the road.

Away from the pitch, several baseball and softball teams can move on to the Lower State tournaments – the second tier in those sports – with wins. Carolina Forest baseball and Aynor baseball and softball can punch their tickets to the Elite Eight of their respective classes with a single win in two possible chances on Wednesday. Seven more can do so by winning two games Wednesday night on the road.
