Cedar Key varsity
By Lauren Bartholemy
Cedar Key varsity girls are selling $10 tickets for the chance to win $1,000. The Lady Sharks use this fundraiser to pay for their team shoes.
Each year the team buys new shoes in order for every member to have the correct footwear. All ticket sales are through the members of the varsity girls basketball team. The winner will be announced this Friday after the Homecoming games.

Speeches make it
By Mikayla Pope
Speeches are the main component of the elementary and middle school year; students prepare vigorously for the competition.
The Sharks made their way to the District Speech Competition in Bronson. Amanda Robinson placed second, Hannah Brinkman placed third and Ciara Beckham received honorable mention for her hard work.
“The district competition created a lot of pressure, but I pulled through and ended up having a good time!” Amanda Robinson commented when asked about dealing with the event.
