  • Howard's two homers, Robinson's slam lead softball team

    It was an offensive showing for the Lady Red Devils April 8, as they played host to the Interlachen Lady Rams, defeating the visitors 15-5 in five innings.

    The Rams went three and out in their first at bat as Laurrin Howard took the mound for the second night in a row for the Lady Red Devils.

    Howard got the shivering crowd excited when she slammed a three run homer over the left field fence that cleared the 220 foot distance by a good 10 feet above the eight-foot fence. The Red Devils took a 5-0 lead after one complete inning of play.

  • Softball team falls to Santa Fe in busy week

    On Friday April 10, the Williston Red Devils played their third game in four nights with the Prom falling on the off night.

    After downing their opponents the first two games on Tuesday and Wednesday with ease, the Red Devils ran into a buzz saw in Santa Fe Pitcher Taylor Bowen. Bowen held the Red Devils scoreless until the bottom of the seventh and final inning as her teammates gave her a 6-0 lead going into the seventh.

    In the seventh inning Alneidra Graham led off with a perfect bunt and claimed first base.

  • Devils rough up Indians

    The only sure thing about the county’s best baseball matchup - Chiefland-Williston - is that there are no sure things. Weeks ago, Williston tried hard to give away the home game to the visiting Indians, before snatching back the 8-6 win. Saturday, the Devils came to Chiefland and their hosts hoped to get them back.

    They didn’t. After six innings of close play among some of the best talent in the area, Williston exploded for nine runs in the top of the seventh to down Chiefland 18-6 in the last district game.
