A pair of locals caught 8.32 pounds worth of fish and were rewarded with a lot more from this past weekend’s Charleston Open. Addison Rupert, captain of Lowcountry Adventures, and David Rupert, his father and co-angler, won first place among a field of 48 two-man teams.

The Charleston Open was the second stop on this year’s Oakley Redfish Tour. The Ruperts won a prize package valued at $30,000 of a 2013 Wako LTS 18-foot boat donated by Bass Pro Shops.

Because of Saturday morning storms, more than half of the competitors failed to bring in any fish. This tournament’s rules included the use of artificial bait, which made for tougher conditions.

Addison Rupert was born and raised in the Lowcountry and gradauted from Wando High School. He founded Lowcountry Outdoor Adventures as a 19-year-old.

Tennis

The Palmetto Christian girls tennis team opened its season with a 7-2 decision over Charleston Collegiate, this past Thursday.

No. 1 singles player Corey Caulder set the tone with a 6-0, 6-0 win. The Eagles won all singles matches and one doubles match.

Soccer

The Charleston Battery advanced to the USL Pro semifinals after beating the Los Angeles Blues, 2-1, this past Saturday night at Blackbaud Stadium.

The Battery travels to Orlando City Friday night for a chance at winning at back-to-back league titles. Orlando City knocked off Pittsburgh with an impressive 5-0 shutout.

Dane Kelly and Mike Azira provided the Charleston goals.

Football

The Academic Magnet football team held off Lincoln in the two team’s regular season openers with a 43-42 victory, this past Friday night. The Raptors raced out to a 16-0 lead in the first quarter and held on as Lincoln rallied in a 14-0 fourth quarter.

Academic Magnet’s Nate Schlosser had 180 rushing yards and three touchdowns (two rushing, one receiving).
