  • 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.

  • 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 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.

  • 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.”

  • 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.

  • 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 drop district tournament...

    The Cedar Key boys’ basketball team had its moments in the first half of its district tournament opener against Dixie County.

    The seventh-seeded Sharks reached double digits in each of the first two quarters behind a trio of 3s, and helped itself to an 11-6 run after digging into an 11-0 deficit to open the game.

    But the eventual district champion Bears ultimately had too much firepower against a young and developing CKS squad, as they thrived off defensive takeaways to post a 76-30 win in the district quarterfinal in Bell.

  • Upstart Sharks fall short in...

    When Cedar Key coach David Tomlin reflected on his team’s tournament loss to rival Bronson Monday night, he saw a lot of good both teams could take away from the closely-fought district quarterfinal matchup.

    No. 4 seed Bronson, which answered a Sharks rally in the middle quarters, prevailed 54-47 to move on to face top-seeded and No. 2-ranked Trenton in Thursday’s District 1A-7 semifinal round at 7:30 p.m. in Trenton.

  • 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.

  • Lady Sharks open district...

    The Cedar Key girls kick off the District 1A-7 tournament next Monday, Jan. 30, as the fifth-seeded Lady Sharks take on No. 4 seed Bronson.

    Monday’s tipoff is at 6 p.m. at Trenton High School.

    CKS (6-15, 4-8) and the Lady Eagles (10-10, 7-5) split their pair of regular season matchups, with each claiming a home victory. Cedar Key came from behind to knock off BMHS 36-32 in early January, after Bronson prevailed 50-37 in their earlier meeting in December.
