  • 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.

  • Softball can't recover...

    Sharks middle school softball got off to a rocky start against Hernando Christian Academy and never recovered, falling 12-1 in five innings against the Lady Lions.

    Pitcher Miranda Haire struck out HCA's first batter, but a cascade of errors allowed the next six batters to get on and score, putting the Sharks in a deep hole at the beginning of the game.

    Cedar Key struggled on offense, too, going down in order until the fourth inning, when Jade Watson singled, and then stole her way all the way home. Hers was the Sharks' lone score on the night.

  • Sharks' strong season cut...

    In the first round of the District 6 1A tournament, Meadowbrook brought their "A" game, and emerged the 64-43 winner over Cedar Key.

    "We didn't come out the way we wanted; we didn't execute our game plan," said Sharks' head coach Aaron Haldeman after the game.

  • Varsity girls eliminated in...

    It was that close.

    A rough start off the tip, any one of a dozen little things, and they might have had them.

    Cedar Key varsity girls got a dream date in the district tournament - a matchup with three-seed Seven Rivers to try to avenge their recent one-point loss.

    It was not to be. After getting down 19-6 in the first quarter, the Lady Sharks made an amazing comeback but just couldn't get over the hump, succumbing in the end by 34-29, after coming as close as 31-29.

  • Sharks bruise Bulldogs in Senior...

    Cedar Key varsity boys hosted Bell for their Senior Night, then went over and above the call of duty to make sure the visitors didn't spoil their special night, winning 51-46. The Sharks had lost to the Bulldogs at Bell earlier in the season, and did not want a repeat of that unhappy day.

  • Boys work on chemistry as...

    Cedar Key boys played one of their best quarters of the season in a 71-36 loss to Seven Rivers Friday.

    "We got beaten up, but at least you knew we were there," said head coach Aaron Haldeman.

    For much of the game, Seven Rivers played the dominant game for which they are well known, outscoring the Sharks by an average of 10 points a quarter. Starting in the second quarter, however, Cedar Key held them to 12-5 on the period, getting ready for a third quarter explosion that saw Cedar Key nearly match their host, scoring 17 points to Seven Rivers' 21 in those eight minutes.

  • Girls to get another crack at...

    It was a heartbreaking loss Friday at host Seven Rivers Christian, when the Lady Sharks led until the last seconds before losing 37-36. Head Coach Chris Cowart and his team feared the loss would be enough to knock them down from the fifth seed in the district tournament, denying them the opportunity to take on a beatable Seven Rivers team and perhaps advance to the semifinal.
