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

    The 3.1 mile (5 kilometer) race began under sunny skies with a brisk breeze and ended in a pouring rain. The weather prevented some times from being recorded correctly.

  • Sharks’ boys, girls place third...

    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.

    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.

  • Allen wins regional championship...

    A pair of area track and field athletes followed up their district championships with wins at the Class 1A, Region 2 meet at Indian Rocks Christian School in Largo last Thursday.

    Cedar Key senior Ashlyn Allen had a top throw of 36 feet, ¼ inch to prevail in the girls shot put event, comfortably edging out second place’s Thalia Jackson, a junior from Trenton who posted a 34-7.5.

    Allen’s performance was even significantly improved from her district-winning throw of 34-9.5, which tied Jackson’s best at the district meet in Gainesville.

  • CK senior Allen wins district in...

    Cedar Key senior Ashlyn Allen captured the District 1A-5 championship in girls’ shot put last Wednesday at Oak Hall School in Gainesville 

    The senior’s best toss went 34 feet, 9 1/2 inches, tying Trenton’s Thalia Jackson. Allen won the tiebreaker with a longer overall average.

    She’ll be joined Thursday, April 27, at the regional championships at Indian Rocks Christian School in Largo by CKS sophomore Jasmin Jackson and Sharks seventh-grader Tristan Sloan.
