  • 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.

    Sharks fall to the Crusaders

    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 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. 

  • 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.

  • 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.
