  • Cedar Key offense explodes in...

    The Cedar Key boys baseball team avenged an earlier loss on the season to Ocala-Meadowbrook and sent out its lone senior in style on senior night last Thursday in Rosewood.

    And the result resembled more of a football score than a baseball game.

    The Sharks scored multiple runs in five different innings and twice batted around the lineup to issue a 21-11 win in the season finale.

    The varsity club finished with a 5-4 record.

  • Lady Sharks softball rolls on...

    The Cedar Key softball team celebrated a sendoff of three seniors in its finale last Thursday in Rosewood, including the school’s first-time college softball signee in Ashlyn Allen.

    It was a feel-good outing for the Lady Sharks all around as they cruised to a 17-2 win in three innings against Ocala-Meadowbrook.

  • Lady Sharks overcome early...

    When the Riverside Christian softball team bursted out of the gate Monday with three hits and a pair of runs in the top of the first inning against Cedar Key, it appeared the Lady Wranglers just might have the Lady Sharks’ number.

    After all, it was Riverside (Trenton) that handed CKS its only loss on the season.

  • Cedar Key scores high marks in...

     

    The Cedar Key girls scored a win in the pole vault event while the school’s competitors captured top-three finishes in four other categories at the Cedar Key School Relays in Rosewood last Thursday.

  • Birdies for books

    Sue Wooley, the president of the Friends of the Cedar Key Library, was stunned last year at the size of the donation to the library from the first-ever Cedar Key Open charity golf event.

    Last Wednesday, the Chiefland Golf and Country Club and the Big Deck Raw Bar hosted the second edition of the Open, and the amount of funds raised was doubled from the previous year.

    “I was nearly speechless,” Wooley said. “And you can ask my husband, that’s a rarity.”

  • Boys hoops set for district...

    Monday marks the start of the opening round of the District 1A-7 boys’ basketball tournament in Bell, but local county teams Chiefland, Cedar Key and Bronson will have to wait a day to tip off their quarterfinal bids.

    No. 6 seed Chiefland (4-16) meets county rival Bronson (10-11), the third seed, at 6 p.m. Tuesday, before No. 7 Cedar Key (1-20) takes on second-seeded Dixie County (Cross City) that night at 7:30 p.m.

  • Local siblings share big dreams...

    She’s a budding prep star, one of the standouts among the county’s impressive class of sophomores.

    He’s a former county star, having twice led Chiefland in scoring, and having played a key role in its final four run in 2014, now on the verge of starting the next phase of his hoops career.

    Her older brother’s former team, a team she once rooted for, is now her neighboring rival.

    He now roots for Cedar Key, at least when it comes to his sister’s Lady Sharks.

  • Cedar Key girls come back for...

    The Cedar Key girls already had to survive a critical stretch in the third quarter without its top player, do-it-all sophomore Jasmin Jackson, who rested with four offensive fouls last Thursday in the CKS gym.

    Then, in the final two minutes of the game, the Lady Sharks would have to do it again without Jackson, who fouled out with just over two minutes to play, with her team clinging to a 32-30 lead against county and district rival Bronson.

    But the young-and-improving CKS squad showed its defense was up to the task.

  • Cedar Key Open coming to...

    The second Cedar Key Open Golf Tournament will be held March 8 at the Chiefland Golf and Country Club.

    The tournament will be a four-person scramble with registration at 11:30 a.m., and a shotgun start at 1:00 PM.

    A bag lunch will be provided by The Big Deck Raw Bar, of Cedar Key.

    Prizes donated by local businesses and community members, and a low country boil, compliments of Ricky Cook and The Big Deck, will immediately follow the tournament at the Big Deck Raw Bar on Dock Street in Cedar Key. Music will be provided by Matt Sky and the Virginian.

  • Sharks host Drummond Bank-CKS...

    Cedar Key School will be hosting its second consecutive holiday tournament on Wednesday, Dec. 21, and Thursday, Dec. 22.

    This year, CKS is excited to have Drummond Bank as the exclusive sponsor of the event, as it’s provided tremendous support for the tournament.

    The four teams participating on the boys’ side of the draw are: Trenton, Oak Hall, Florida State University School (Tallahassee) and Cedar Key.
