    Last Friday, the Williston Red Devil varsity football team traveled to take on the Newberry Panthers. The final score was 41-40 in a true heartbreaker for the Devils, as the Panthers won on a gutsy two-point conversion play. Although it is a tough loss, the Devils have no reason to hang their heads, as they played a heckuva game.

    By Tony Young

    Muzzleloading guns are a part of American history. Throughout my schooling, I learned about their use in the Revolutionary and Civil wars and as survival tools for early settlers. But it was my favorite high school history teacher who gave me my first hands-on experience with an ol’ smoke pole. He had a tradition when every year he would pick two students to shoot his muzzleloading rifle outside his classroom, and I was fortunate enough to be one of them.

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.

    Williston graduate and Florida freshman Austin Langworthy introduced himself to big-time college baseball in style this past weekend.

    The starting left fielder and relief pitcher went 4 for 9 (.444 average) in a three-game sweep of William & Mary in McKethan Stadium in Gainesville. He capped the opening weekend with a 3-for-4 performance on Sunday that included a home run and a ground-rule double. The left-hander also fanned a pair of Tribe batters and allowed three hits in 2 ⅔ innings on the mound.

    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.
