Janel Swanson will be the faculty representative in charge of the Bishop England High School boys’ volleyball team, which will make its debut this fall when the South Carolina High School League finally sanctions the sport.
Swanson will share the coaching duties with her children, Alec and Sawyer, who will serve as the head coaches as the Bishops prepare to make history when they hold tryouts for the first time on Aug. 1 and play their first game a few weeks later.
“It’s still so very new, so very, very fresh,” Swanson said of building a team from the ground up. “My children are helping out with coaching and I thought their attitude would be ‘Why mom? Why are you dragging us out to do this?’ But so far, they have enjoyed it.”
For the record, Alec is a fighter pilot for the U.S. Air Force while Sawyer is a physician’s assistant at MUSC. So, they won’t be quitting their daytime jobs just yet. But the two could be part of something big as Bishop England joins teams around the state in growing the sport.
Swanson doesn’t understand why it took the SCHSL so long to sanction the sport. She’s just happy the beginning is near.
“It’s been a long time, maybe eight years ago when Alec was at BE when we first approached the High School League,” Swanson said. “It’s just not as popular here as it is in the Midwest or West Coast.”
Bishop England is holding open gym during the summer to gauge interest. A recent night included about 14-16 potential players and that doesn’t include freshmen, who haven’t officially enrolled at BE.
“We’ve got a good list of players started, but that list, like the rest of the process, can change almost daily,” said Swanson, who teaches physical education at Bishop England while serving as an assistant coach to Cindy Baggott, the head coach of the ultra-successful girls’ program. “The High School League is adding teams to the list all the time, and some of the local schools that will have boys’ teams include: Academic Magnet, Hanahan, Lucy Beckham and Wando. Philip Simmons and Goose Creek are other local schools that are expected to have teams.”
The big difference in boys’ volleyball versus girls’ volleyball will be the height of the net, which will be almost a foot higher for boys’ competition. Swanson doesn’t expect the boys’ players or teams to be as polished as their girl counterparts because of experience, or lack of it. Most of the boys playing volleyball around the state this fall won’t have as much club experience as the girls.
There will be no playoffs, no state championship with the schedule being very limited in 2022. Swanson said members of the first volleyball team will include athletes who play soccer, baseball and basketball.
Swanson said the High School League considered the spring season for boys’ volleyball, but finally decided on the fall, when the girls play. She said Athletic Director Paul Runey was receptive to the team, but pointed out scheduling practices with only one gym could be a challenge.
“But the work, the effort, will pay off,” Swanson said. “Sometimes you watch them at the beginning of practice and say, ‘Oh Lord.’ But by the end of the practice, you are saying, ‘Oh, wow.’”
Daniel Island Soccer Academy Juventus coach Toni Becvinovski said it took talent, hard work and discipline for his U-13 boys’ team to reach the Southern Regional Cup tournament.It also took various fundraising projects to offset the cost for the trip to the tournament, which will be held June 15-19 in Frisco, Texas.“It’s going to be very exciting for the guys,” said Becvinovski, a native of Australia, who has an impressive soccer resume as a player and coach. “The kids have done the work and the co...
Daniel Island Soccer Academy Juventus coach Toni Becvinovski said it took talent, hard work and discipline for his U-13 boys’ team to reach the Southern Regional Cup tournament.
It also took various fundraising projects to offset the cost for the trip to the tournament, which will be held June 15-19 in Frisco, Texas.
“It’s going to be very exciting for the guys,” said Becvinovski, a native of Australia, who has an impressive soccer resume as a player and coach. “The kids have done the work and the community has responded to make this trip possible.”
The team created a GoFundMe page and held a lunch at Orlando’s Pizza with 10% of the day’s proceeds going to the team. Other businesses responded with donations, which included having its business logos printed on polo shirts and practice jerseys the team will wear in Texas.
The team also is holding a raffle while the DISA Starz U-15 girls got into the fundraising act and raised more than $1,200 via a car wash and bake sale.
“It was a total team effort,” Becvinovski said. “It was a total community effort.”
DISA Juventus qualified for the Southern Regional by winning the South Carolina State Cup tourney, which was held in Augusta, Georgia, on April 23-24.
The team was dominant in state play, outscoring four foes 18-2 to advance. DISA Juventus finished the spring regular league and tournament games with a perfect record: 16-0-0.
“We were very pleased with how the team handled tough situations on the field in all four games,” Becvinovski said of the state tournament. “The scoreline (5-2) in the final game against the 2009 Bulls Boys Red from Augusta was a true reflection of our dominance. The
passing and movement was exceptional. We looked stronger as an attacking force going forward every time. We were solid in defense and aggressive in all parts of the field. It was a good all-around performance from everyone on the team.”
DISA Juventus has spent the past six weeks preparing the team for the rigors of playing in challenging conditions against very competitive teams. The Southern regional includes teams from South Carolina, North Carolina, Florida, Texas, Louisiana, Mississippi and Georgia.
“Based on previous winners in the U-13 age group, the teams out of Texas have won the competition more than other states,” Becvinovski said. “That is generally expected from states like North Carolina, Florida, Georgia and Texas that have large pools of technically and physically gifted players.”
“It will be a tough week for the players against highly rated opposition,” Becvinovski added. “However, once again, I feel there is enough ability and talent on our team to not only be competitive but win the Southern Regional Cup. I have faith in our boys that, if we continue to play with the same skill and intensity as we did in Augusta, we are going to surprise the so-called bigger teams.”
Eighteen players are on the roster, including 12 from Daniel Island. The roster includes goalkeepers James Fisher, Ellis Fetten; defenders Ralston Potts, Lucas Rizzetto, Peyton Owens, Trevor Tonon, Chase Tonon, Matthew Putignano; midfielders JG Wenger, Louis
Rainero, Gunner Khouri, Leighton Thompson, Brooks Wallace and forwards Graham Winterfield, Rex Ferm, Grayson Barna, Charlie Collier, Michael McColl.

Last night, Phish made their Credit One Stadium debut in Charleston, S.C. The band opened up the show with a 22-minute “Set Your Soul Free” to set the night’s tone. The heavy jam performance featured many special moments customized for The Chuck.
After a monumental opener, the band played 2002’s “Walls of the Cave” from their LP, Round Room; they capped the tune with a fast-paced jam and elaborate keys solo by Page McConnell. Then, after two intricate songs, Phish went with fan-favorite “Sample in a Jar” ahead of a funk-fueled “Steam.”
Phish toyed with “My Friend, My Friend” but skipped the “Myfe” ending. Instead, they segued in a taste of “Sparkle” ahead of a jammed-out “Ocelot.” Next up, the band performed a number off Sigma Oasis with “Leaves.” Then, for the final song of the night’s first set, McConnell held it down during the solo crowd-pleaser, “The Squirming Coil.”
Set two got underway with “Axilla (Part II),” which segued into “Also Sprach Zarathustra.” The latter bled into a jam-heavy take on “Lights,” featuring Mike Gordon’s incomprehensible bass skills. Next, the ensemble jammed into “Mountains in the Mist,” with Trey Anastasio taking the lead on vocals. Gordon brought the funk on “Meat” ahead of “Golgi Apparatus,” which saw Anastasio make a swift lyrical shift by adding, “I saw you with a barcode in your hand,” to the tune.
The band performed an epic take on “Slave to the Traffic Light” before set-closer, “Cavern,” capped the second set. For their encores, Phish opened it up with an extended version of “46 Days” and a teased in “Mr. Completely” courtesy of Anastasio and John Fishman. The final song of the band’s first night in Charleston, they played a powerful and illustriously jammed take on “Tube.”
After last night’s performance, Phish will continue their tour with a second sold-out night in Charleston, S.C., this evening. After that, they’ll hit the road and head to Ruoff Music Center in Noblesville, Ind., for a three-night stand, starting on June 3.
Tickets are still available for Phish’s Indiana run. To purchase tickets visit phish.com.

Dear Island neighbors,
This time, a few events marking our nation’s acquisition of independence, and some other important items.
Please join us on Saturday, June 25, at 9 a.m. at Town Hall for this year’s celebration of Carolina Day. We again commemorate the Battle of Sullivan’s Island, which took place on June 28, 1776, in which our brave South Carolina patriots achieved the first decisive victory over the invading British Naval fleet, one of the first great American victories of the Revolutionary War. In 2019, the Battery Gadsden Cultural Center, along with the Town, re-established an Island celebration of this day. This year’s festivities, on the plaza in front of Town Hall, will include raising of the Moultrie flag, the reading of our proclamation, participation by the Daughters of the American Revolution, and a special speaker on the history of the battle. An extra special treat will be the firing of a musket salute by members of the 2nd South Carolina Regiment, Col. Moultrie’s own unit! Invocation and benediction will be by Rev. Daniel Massie. Refreshments of donuts, coffee and orange juice will be served. Bring your family and friends out to this truly unique event.
Especially the kids, so they can learn about the great Island history they inherit.
WHEN IS JULY 4 THIS YEAR?
Making sure you never ask that question is another good reason to stick with the original title of Independence Day, which this year falls on Monday, July 4. So, get ready for a three-day weekend, with the main event on the third day. As always, it will be a jamup busy weekend on the Island if we have halfway welcoming weather, so be prepared. This year we will again enjoy one of our venerable Island traditions the morning of Independence Day and welcome the return of an old tradition in the late afternoon and evening.
GOLF CART PARADE
We’ll start the day with the golf cart and bike parade, which again begins at Sunrise Presbyterian Church and ends at the school. The parade kicks off at 9 a.m. As always, we’ll have ribbons for the best decorations, but…to be considered in the competition you must have a registration number for your cart or bike. They’ll be available at Town Hall through Friday, July 1, and you are strongly encouraged to get yours there. If you wait until the day of the event, you will need to show up no later than 8:30 a.m. if you want to register for the competition. If you show up after that, you are still free to join the parade after the registered participants, but you won’t be considered in the judging. When you get to the school, there will be Kona Ice and Duck Donuts (and coffee) for all, the Fire Department will be there to hose down willing kids, and the winning carts/bikes will get their ribbons. In light of her recent Jubilee, we are inviting Queen Elizabeth to judge this year’s Trooping Of Golf Carts (just to show no hard feelings about June 28, 1776, old girl), but we don’t yet know if she will attend. And feel free to bring your favorite Independence Day playlist to the parade for your not-too-loud (please) speakers. Maybe this year, the mayor won’t be the only one playing John Philip Sousa marches.
PARTY IN THE PARK AND FIREWORKS
After a multi-year absence, the Independence Day party at the park and fireworks are back!
Fire Chief Anthony Stith tells us that we’ll have music starting around 6 p.m. by the Shem Creek Boogie Band, with fireworks starting shortly after 9 p.m. Chief reminds us, “(Personal) fireworks are illegal on Sullivan’s Island, so come out and enjoy the Town’s”. And thanks in advance to all our public safety, public works and other Town staff who will be giving up their holiday weekend for a very long working weekend so that we can have a safe and enjoyable celebration on the Island. Please thank them when you see them.
LOOKING FOR A FEW GOOD MEN AND WOMEN
It’s that time of year, when we have vacancies occurring on our Town Boards and Commissions: Board of Zoning Appeals, Planning Commission, Design Review Board, Tree Commission and Municipal Election Commission. Service on any of these Town groups is a wonderful way to learn more about the functioning of our Town government while giving back to your community. Please look into these opportunities. Space does not permit serving up all the relevant information here, but you can learn more at: bit.ly/ BandCApplication.
BEWARE OF RIP CURRENTS
It’s also the time of year when increased numbers of beach swimmers and waders collide with increased chances of dangerous rip currents. Please always be aware of the dangers and educate your family and guests about the issue. Here’s a good place to start: bit.ly/ NOAArip.
FIRE STATION UPDATE
The fire station rebuild and maintenance/storage building project remains on track. As of May 31, the project is 76% complete and on schedule. Delivery is expected in late August or early September. Contact Andy Benke if you want to learn more or arrange a tour.
See you around the Island!
Pat O’Neil, Mayor
