  • Cedar Key girls boast promising...

    Cedar Key girls’ basketball coach David Tomlin says this year’s varsity team might be more talented than last year’s, but the new crop of young players don’t have the experience to prove it quite yet.

    With seven girls gone from last year’s squad, a handful of promising newcomers are filling important roles for the Lady Sharks, especially on defense and on the boards, where eighth-grader Rylee Smith and freshman Niya Jones are two of the top team’s top rebounders.

  • Young Cedar Key boys hoops squad...

    The Cedar Key boys’ varsity basketball team needs that one thing that only time can deliver: experience.

    Most of this year’s roster, which doesn’t include a single senior, offers little returning experience, which means a steep learning curve is ahead for its players.

    First-year Sharks head coach Vance Dickey recognizes some strengths his team has to build on, particularly in the post, but the mental side of the game and the fundamentals will take time.

  • Cedar Key Sharks dominate at...

    Last Wednesday the Cedar Key Sharks Track and Field team traveled to Oak Hall School to participate in the FHSAA Track and Field District Finals. The results are as follows:

    Varsity Girls:

    1st Place, Shot-put: Ashlyn Allen

    1st Place, Adaptive Shot-put: Annie McCain

    1st Place, Adaptive Wheel Chair 200 Dash: Annie McCain

    1st Place, Adaptive Wheel Chair 800 Dash: Annie McCain

    2nd Place, Pole Vault: Amanda Robinson

    3rd Place, 100 High Hurdles: Sarah Bartholemy

    3rd Place, Pole Vault: Jadyn Beckham

  • Good fishing weather on the...

     Hey everyone. I hope everyone is enjoying this little shot of nice weather and, man, let’s hope it lasts a little while. We need some kind of good trend with no wind, no rain, and maybe, just maybe, our water will get cleared up some.

    The varsity boy Sharks played the Ocala Christian Crusaders in a head-to-head battle on Tuesday, March 11. Unfortunately, the varsity baseball Sharks didn’t bring home the win and ended the game with a final score of 13-3. The boys were pumped while playing, having the varsity girls there to cheer them on.

  • Bronson defeats Lady Sharks 52-27

    The Cedar Key Lady Sharks plays in Bronson on Monday evening. 

    They play at Branford on Friday, Dec. 6, and at Hilliard on Saturday, Dec. 7. 

  • Dickey looks forward to leading...

    Vance Dickey had only recently arrived in Cedar Key to teach Phys Ed and head the boys hoops team, but he was already knee-deep in the program’s history as he cleaned out his new office.

    “Man, there are years and years – I shouldn’t say years, because that’s misleading – there are decades worth of stuff here,” Dickey says by phone while taking a break from the cleaning. “I’m picking up uniforms I’m thinking are from the 1960s or 70s, and they’re falling apart.”

  • 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 produces trio of...

    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.

  • 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.
