The final regular-season baseball polls are out, and two Grand Strand teams find themselves in their respective top 10 in South Carolina.
Socastee, which was already in the top five when the polls last came out in March, moved up to No. 2 in Class AAA behind only back-to-back state champ A.C. Flora. The Braves won the Region VII-AAA title this spring after going 10-0 in region games and will play Hanahan at home on Friday in the first round of the state playoffs.
Additionally, Loris is now No. 6 in Class AA after a second-place finish in Region VIII-AA. The Lions will open the postseason at home Thursday against Lake City.
