  • Sharks held in check by Trenton...

    In the boys’ consolation game on the second day of the Drummond Bank-CKS Beach Ball Holiday Tournament last Thursday, the Cedar Key boys once again found some early success in the paint, but succumbed to a more experienced team that was playing near the top of its game.

    The Sharks led Trenton 8-7 with 2:30 remaining in the opening quarter following a put-back by Joey Stewart. From there, Trenton built up an insurmountable advantage to capture a 63-21 win.

  • Cedar Key boys run into...

    A strong early effort by the Cedar Key boys was overcome by a talented Florida State University High squad last Wednesday in the Drummond Bank-CKS Beach Ball Holiday Tournament.

    The Seminoles found success from all over the floor on offense with their ball movement, and dominated the offensive boards to get many more second chances against the Sharks, whose young roster boasts just one junior and no seniors.

  • Lady Sharks succumb to late...

    Cedar Key freshman Niya Jones drained a 3 in the first minute of the fourth quarter to pull her Lady Sharks ahead 29-26 last Wednesday in the Drummond Bank-CKS Beach Ball Holiday Tournament.

    But Fort White held the upper hand after that point, outscoring the tournament host 18-5 for the remainder to secure a 44-36 win.

  • Lady Sharks show promise in...

    The result may have showed loss in the standings, but Cedar Key’s defeat to Branford last Thursday in the Drummond Bank-CKS Beach Ball Holiday Tournament was an effort worth building on for the Lady Sharks, who don’t have any senior or junior starters.

    Though trailing throughout after Branford went ahead 15-13 on a Trinity Thomas bucket early in the second quarter, CKS hung close, and was down just four with six minutes to play.

  • Cedar Key softball standout...

    If you ask Ashlyn Allen’s coaches about the Cedar key senior’s best qualities, one of the first things that comes up is her leadership.

    The standout shortstop and pitcher was in a pioneering mode last Thursday, as she was part of Cedar Key School’s first letter-of-intent signing ceremony. The event was held in the school’s auditorium in front of a packed room with classmates, coaches and family, as she made official her commitment to play softball for Saint Petersburg College in Florida.

  • Sharks host Drummond Bank-CKS...

    Cedar Key School will be hosting its second consecutive holiday tournament on Wednesday, Dec. 21, and Thursday, Dec. 22.

    This year, CKS is excited to have Drummond Bank as the exclusive sponsor of the event, as it’s provided tremendous support for the tournament.

    The four teams participating on the boys’ side of the draw are: Trenton, Oak Hall, Florida State University School (Tallahassee) and Cedar Key.

  • Cedar Key boys overwhelmed by...

    The Bronson boys’ basketball team put together its best performance on the season against Cedar Key Monday with good ball movement on offense and opportunistic defense, as the Eagles cruised to a 74-36 win in District 1A-7 action.

    Seven different Eagles converted at least two field goals, while three – Julius Smith (11 points), Glen Cooper (10 points) and Tra Francis (10 points) – were in double figures, helping BMHS pick up its second win in the district.

  • Lady Eagles fend off plucky...

    What once looked like an easy win for Bronson approached nail-biter status midway through the fourth quarter.

    The Lady Eagles led by as much as 16 points in the third quarter Monday against Cedar Key, but the Lady Sharks charged back in the fourth to cut the deficit to seven points, before Bronson, led by senior Myia Knight, converted eight free throws down the stretch to pull way for a 50-37 win in an up-tempo district hoops clash in Bronson.

  • 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.
