  • Sharks take on Trenton in...

    The Cedar Key boys’ basketball team finished in a three-way tie in district wins with Bronson and Chiefland, but the tiebreaker process left the Sharks as the No. 6 seed, earning them a meeting with No. 3 seed Trenton in the quarterfinal round on Tuesday, Feb. 13.

    The seven-team District 1A-7 tournament, which tips off Monday, Feb. 12, with No. 5 Chiefland and No. 6 Bronson, is at Dixie County High School in Cross City.

    The semifinals will be held Friday, Feb. 16, and the championship game will be the following Saturday at 7:30 p.m.

  • Lady Sharks' superb season...

    The Cedar Key Lady Sharks enjoyed what was easily one of the best seasons in program history, going 12-12 and picking up four district wins.

    Their District 1A-7 tournament appearance Monday, Feb. 5, in Trenton – a 40-18 loss to Chiefland – might’ve been an anti-climactic finish to the year, but doesn’t erase the prior accomplishments.

    The Lady Sharks finished strong in the regular campaign, winning 4 of 5 down the stretch, including a couple of blowout victories against Union County.

  • Girls’ hoops tourney tips off...

    The Cedar Key girls (12-8) are the No. 6 seed in next week's District 1A-7 tournament in Trenton. They face third-seeded Chiefland Monday, Feb. 5, at 6.

Bronson kicks off the tournament at 4:30 Monday against Dixie County. The championship game will be held Feb. 9 at 7:30 p.m.

  • CKS boys get thrilling...

    As the Cedar Key boys’ basketball team has picked up steam and collected more victories than the program is generally accustomed to, the candidates for signature win have also begun to pile up.

    Two such examples were the Sharks’ recent intra-county wins over Bronson and Chiefland.

    But on Friday, Jan. 19, with the occasion of homecoming helping set the scene in the Shark Tank against visiting Branford, the final couple of minutes of action secured the game instant classic status.

  • Lady Sharks split county tilts,...

    The Cedar Key girls’ basketball team stumbled out of the gate in its return from the holiday break, but quickly returned to its recent winning ways, establishing an overall upward trend as it enters the key part of the season.

    Free throws and rebounds were trouble areas for the Lady Shark in their Jan. 2 home meeting against Chiefland, as the Lady Indians prevailed 55-43.

  • Sharks avenge county foes

    What a difference a new year can make.

    In its first game of 2018, the Cedar Key boys’ basketball team looked like a remade team compared to the one that fell to Chiefland by 19 just two weeks prior during Christmas break.

    The Sharks fixed their transition turnover woes that hurt them so much against the Indians Dec. 21, which came after the county and district rivals locked into an overtime thriller in Chiefland at the end of November.

  • Lady Sharks thrive in Drummond...

    Cedar Key got just about everything it could ask for in the Drummond Bank CKS Beach Ball Holiday Tournament Dec. 19 and Dec. 20.

    Seven of the nine games in the six-team tourney were decided by five points or less, with multiple even going into overtime.

    And the Lady Sharks (4-7) advanced to the championship game, where they eventually fell 34-32 in a closely-fought final.

  • Indians pull away from Sharks in...

    In their two meetings with Chiefland this season, the Cedar Key boys’ basketball team has run into an Indian shooter who was red hot from beyond the arc.

    In their first game, CMHS sophomore Ty Corbin lit up the gym with six 3s to help lift his squad past the Sharks in overtime. In the SAMCO Classic Christmas Tournament in the Dec. 21, it was Payne Parnell’s turn.

  • Cedar Key hoops drop pair in...

    The Cedar Key boys’ and girls’ varsity squads fell short in their respective games at Bronson in district and intra-county hoops action Dec. 12.

    Both teams fought to within single-digit margins in the fourth quarter, but discrepancies at the foul line proved tough to overcome.

    The Shark boys saw a balanced effort from its scorers, with five shooters notching at least eight points. CKS also found success late in the paint, and first-year coach John Miller applauded his team’s pressure defense.

  • Drummond Holiday Tournament...

    One of the staples of the holiday season are hoops tournaments.

    Cedar Key School is hosting its second Drummond Bank CKS Beach Ball Holiday Tournament Dec. 19 and Dec. 20.

    The tourney features six girls’ squads, including Branford, Chiefland and The Rock (Gainesville) in Pool A; and Fort White, Keystone Heights and the Lady Sharks constituting Pool B.

    Each school plays twice on Day 1 in pool play.
