    The 14 Williston High School varsity softball team members will start the defense of their 2010 District and Regional Championships and hope to return to the State Final Four this season with a different result.

  • Red Devils even regular season district; down SF

    The game started and continued Thursday evening Jan. 27, for the Santa Fe Raiders as the CJ Wakeley and Ashton Lee show.
    But the end result was a Williston team effort that lifted the Red Devils to a smashing 82-63 district win.
    Wakeley’s 27 points and Lee’s 23 points accounted for all but 13 points for the Raiders on the night.
    The Red Devils on the other hand were putting 4 players in double figures and crashing the boards, while dropping in 3-point baskets the entire game at key times.

  • Diamond Red Devils look for standard of excellence

    The 2011 Red Devil Varsity Baseball team “is a young team with a very sour taste in their mouths from last season,” said Head Coach Jim Smith. “We just are not used to sitting at home when the state playoffs are going on.”
    Smith was referring to the 2010 Red Devil team that failed to make the playoffs for the first time in eight seasons.
    This is the motivation tool for the seven returning varsity players that have a ton of talent and gained a lot of valuable experience last season.
