  • JV wraps up season

    Williston 5 – Ft. White 2

    A slow start for both teams led to a narrow 1-0 lead for the Devils after four innings. The Indians put some hits together in the fifth to take the lead, but Williston bounced right back with four runs and shut out Ft. White in the final two innings to get the win. Grayson Geiger, Gabe Foster and Bryce King teamed up on the mound, limiting the Indians to only two runs on five hits and recorded seven strikeouts. Josh Forsythe and Gabe Foster lead the team, both going 2-for-3 at the plate.

    The WMHS girls varsity team’s season unfortunately came to an end last week. They lost in the first round of the state playoffs to Lafayette.

    The game, played on Tuesday, Feb. 14 at the WMHS gym was a defensive grinder all the way through.

    In the closing minutes, junior guard Destiny Haynes (#14) hit a three pointer to give the girls hope. But the team missed some key free throws down the stretch that ultimately cost them the game. The final score was 24-22 in favor of Lafayette.

    Apparently, the new year's resolution for both WMHS varsity basketball teams was to keep winning. The girls went 2-0 last week and the boys 3-0, with both teams beating Ft. White and Hilliard at home. Both wins were important district victories for the teams, as they are both now 7-1 in that category. The girls are in second behind the undefeated in district play Newberry Panthers, while the boys are in the same position behind the Hawthorne Hornets.
