  • Sharks drop home finale to Bell

    Cedar Key baseball dropped its last home game 17-8 to Bell, playing six good innings after coming this close to a 10-run meltdown.

    "We were down 13-0 when we first came to bat in the first inning," said head coach Joe Bishop.

    Bell batted through the order twice in the first inning, with C.J. Harris and Tyler Stofel each hitting home runs, but much of the scoring was due to defensive errors.

  • Track Sharks send six to Jax...

    Sharks Track and Field will send six athletes to next week's regional meet at Jacksonville's Bolles High School after some outstanding individual performances at Monday's district meet at Oak Hall.

    The meet was marred by the injuries of Cedar Key's Hunter Cannon and Shawna Fenton in unrelated accidents over the weekend. Fenton was able to compete, albeit limited by back pain, but Cannon's injuries are more serious.

  • Diamond Sharks keep focus...

    Sharks baseball put together another big win against 2A St. John Lutheran Ocala, coming back from a two-run deficit early on to make a decisive 7-3 finish. They got a huge boost in the fifth inning from a three-run homer by Evan Lyons.

    "We started off down two," said Sharks' head coach Joe Bishop. "But then we got a run and got everything started."

  • Girls do it again, four-peat at...

    With 98 points, Cedar Key girls won the team scoring at Tuesday's running of the Levy County Track Meet, and Shark boys placed second in their competition with 83.5.

    Host Cedar Key head coach Brad Penney proudly informed the crowd in attendance that another school record had been set with Samantha Beckham's 10'0" pole vault success.

    "That's also a tie for state runner-up among 1A schools," he said.

    Boys also had an outstanding outing, narrowly falling behind Williston in team scoring.

  • Sharks bite back hard vs....

    With his no-out, RBI walk-off home run, Ryan Alford put the cap on Cedar Key's thrilling 7-6 comeback win against district visitors Meadowbrook. The Sharks had beaten the Mustangs 14-4 in the first week of the season and came out very confident, but a four-inning standoff and opportunistic scoring by Meadowbrook shook their poise.

  • Track Sharks pick up steam...

    Cedar Key girls won at Chiefland in Friday's meet, with an overpowering team score of 140 to 104 for second-place Bell. Key to the win were dominant performances by Sam Beckham and Kacey Miller, including Miller's new school record in the high jump at 5'3 1/2".

    Cedar Key boys fared less well, coming in last among full teams with 68 points; as at the Cedar Key Relays last week, a shortage of team members hobbled their performance. Fortunately, senior Justin Speegle is back and ready to murder his events in next week's county meet.

  • Track Sharks shine as first-time...

    Sharks track and field tasted success at their inaugural home meet Monday, hosting Branford, Seven Rivers, St. John Lutheran and Bronson at the first Cedar Key Relays.

    Branford was the overall winner, with the girls' team scoring 80 total points and boys' team scoring 84. Cedar Key girls were runners-up with 68 points, and Cedar Key boys placed third with 46 points.

  • Baseball falls to Branford in...

    Sharks baseball got off to a great start against Branford in the rain Tuesday, holding onto a 5-3 lead through the fifth inning, but eventually falling 15-5 as the Buccaneers staged a monster rally in the seventh.

    Cedar Key had a nice second inning, as leadoff Ryan Alford got them started with a single and was brought home by Billy O'Dell. O'Dell moved over when Jacob Crosby was hit by the pitch, and both came home off a two-RBI single by Aaron Esposito.

  • Shark softball walks over Bell...

    Lady Sharks middle school softball made their fortune at the plate Tuesday, waiting out the battery against Bell as they walked to a 14-4 win in five innings.

    Cedar Key led from the first inning, turning an error by Bell into a one-run lead. A big inning in the third boosted them to an 11-0 advantage, and a shortened game seemed certain. However, the Bulldogs chipped, getting two runs in the fourth and two in the top of the fifth, narrowing the score to 13-4 and seeming to head off the 10-run rule, at least for the moment.

  • Diamond Sharks lose to Shores,...

    Cedar Key baseball is getting off to a mixed start this year, winning their road opener against Meadowbrook but dropping the next two home games, 9-1 to Shores Christian on Thursday and 15-4 to Hernando Christian on Friday.

    Head coach Joe Bishop started Evan Lyons against Shores, and Lyons had a very good outing, giving up one earned run, striking out 14 and walking only one in a complete game.
