  • Devils keep on winning in district games

    The Bears learned a valuable lesson Tuesday night ... let sleeping Devils lie.

    Williston’s offense, somewhat dormant over the first three innings, came to life after one of the Devils was plunked in the helmet by a pitch, and the Red Devils went on to defeat Dixie County, 12-3, in a district game Tuesday night.

    Over the first three innings, Williston had managed only three hits and two runs. Tyrie Boyer had an RBI single in the second, scoring Brandon Scott who had walked and stolen second, and after a groundout, Caleb Medeiros singled to left to drive in a run.

  • P.K. defeats WHS softball team

    GAINESVILLE -- For the second time this season, the Williston Lady Red Devils softball team and the P.K. Yonge Blue Wave have gone to extra innings to determine the winner of their two games. The results have been the same in both games as far as winner and loser as the Blue Wave have won both games by one run to take sole possession of first place in district play.

    The Blue Wave came from behind in the eighth inning after a questionable call by the umpires to take a 10-9 win.
