  • Cedar Key runners improve times...

    The young Cedar Key boys' and girls' cross country squads didn't post any qualifiers for regionals, but did see across-the-board improvements from last season at the District 1A-5 5K championship meet Oct. 25 at St. Francis Catholic Academy in Gainesville, led by their sibling duo.

    Shark brother and sister Brandon (21:06.48) and Makalynn Bowling (26:53.80) were out in front for their respective teams, as the CKS boys defeated Bell and Trenton to take seventh place. The Lady Sharks were one short of enough competitors to receive an official team score.

    The 34th Annual Cedar Key Invitational Cross Country Race drew teams from across North Central Florida Thursday afternoon.

    The Cedar Key cross country teams didn’t quite hit their potential, according to head coach Carrie Tomlin, but their effort was good enough for a pair of top-3 finishes.

    The Sharks’ pair of varsity squads each placed third at a 5K meet at Chiefland Middle High School on Sept. 21.

    The Lady Indians took first behind a No. 1 overall finish by eighth-grader Lauren Jones (20:44), while Williston edged out CMHS to prevail on the boys’ side. Trenton notched second place in the girls’ race.

    Eight schools competed at the event.

  • Lady Sharks roll in summer hoops...

    Jasmin Jackson penetrated the lane while Hannah Brinkman dropped a trio of 3-pointers in the second half to lift the Cedar Key girls’ basketball team to a convincing 34-23 win over Keystone Heights last Thursday in Trenton.

    The meeting was part of a June summer league featuring 12 area schools. CKS concludes its league play Thursday June 29 in Trenton against Branford at 4 p.m.

    The games are timed at 20 minutes per half. The clock only stops for timeouts.

  • Lady Sharks fall just short in...

    The Cedar Key and Chiefland girls’ hoops squads met for a closely-fought game last Thursday in the CKS gym, as the Lady Indians eked out the Lady Sharks 28-27 in overtime as part of the local Summer League Basketball season. The league features teams made of players from 12 area schools, including Trenton, Williston and Newberry. Cedar Key borrowed some players from the Branford squad because a banquet scheduled that night left the Lady Sharks shorthanded.

  • Cedar Key School recognized...

    Cedar Key School takes its sportsmanship seriously, and it’s been awarded again for its efforts.

    The school, which is the smallest public school by enrollment in Florida, received this month the Fred E. Rozelle Sportsmanship Award for Class 1A for the fourth time in six years.

    The award is issued by the FHSAA (Florida High School Athletic Association) to schools from each classification “whose total sports program best exemplifies the qualities of sportsmanship as demonstrated by its coaches, players and spectators.”

    Cedar Key senior Ashlyn Allen slightly bettered her shot put throw that won her a regional championship to finish third in the state in Class 1A last Friday in the Florida High School Track and Field Finals at IMG Academy in Bradenton.

    The school record-holder, who has signed to play softball at St. Petersburg College, posted a 36-foot, ¾-inch toss, beating out the fourth-place throw by fractions of a quarter inch to earn the bronze medal.
