South Carolina's Chaz Renaud part of growing success in youth lacrosse

Known around the globe as one of the premier destinations for the PGA tour, Hilton Head, South Carolina is becoming a household name.
And although golf has been the biggest past time in the community for decades, residents of the city are exchanging golf clubs for long and short sticks alike.
Chaz Renaud, one of the city's brightest stars, is helping shape the future of lacrosse in the tourist littered town and is hoping to be part of the next generation that motivates other athletes to pick up their sticks and learn the game.
A competitor in the Palmetto and Recreation League, Renaud was dubbed the team captain and also competes with the U18 team.
The sport, which is popular amongst northerners, has slowly made its way down South. Yet coaches still find it difficult to fill a roster, or even worse, are forced to cancel the season due to a lack of participants.
But that doesn’t seem to be an issue in Hilton Head as the game has become so prevalent and has had rapid success.
The Seahawks of Hilton Head High School just wrapped up a 13-4 campaign, falling just one point shy of reaching the title game and is currently ranked No. 2 in the state. That has caught the attention of youngsters who hope to keep the tradition of winning alive.
Renaud's coach Anthony Mangano is confident the left-hand attack man can be an elite player in the future.
“He has a lot of talent for his age, said head coach Anthony Mangano. “I believe he has a lot of potential to exceed as a young lacrosse player and will have great success if he continues to improve and play at a higher level. I also believe friends and teammates that he’s played with over the years have been helpful with not only his level of play but the success of the group as a whole.”
