The other 4A Region 7 seeds, No. 2 Stratford and No. 3 Goose Creek, also lost Friday.
Five Warriors won first place honors in the individual regional tournament, this previous Wednesday night.

Last year, the Hawg Tuff! football camp only catered to linemen. This year, every position is invited.
Third-12th graders are invited to attend the Hawg Tuff! All Football Positions Camp, March 2 at Stratford High School. Stratford coach Arthur Jashienski is hosting the event with help from other coaches, including Wando, Cane Bay, Goose Creek, West Ashley, Wingate University and more.
The cost is $50, which includes 6 1/2 hours of instruction, lunch and a camp T-shirt. Registration begins at 8 a.m. All instruction is contact-free. It is emphasized that this is a teaching camp involving shields, dummies and other aids.
Participants are encouraged to bring tennis shoes, in case it rains and players are taught indoors. Campers can visit www.hawgtuff.net for more information and to pre-register.
Hawg Tuff! camps began 21 years ago with a goal of providing instruction to offensive linemen at a fraction of the cost of bigger camps. More than 20,000 players have attended camps from all over the country.
The original camps have since expanded to include all positions. Campers are divided into three groups: middle school and under, junior varsity and varsity. Groups receive instruction in run and pass fundamentals and techniques.
