    Williston had drawn first blood, as Chris Morrow, leading off in the second inning, drew a rare walk from Keystone starter Mosely. Brandon Scott moved Morrow over with a hard single to right, and Tyrie Boyer drove him home with a chop up the middle.

    Starting two freshmen, five sophomores, one junior and one senior, after lineup changes in each of the postseason games, the Williston Lady Red Devils fell to the Keystone Heights Lady Indians 10-0 in six innings Friday, May 1.

    The Indians were patient through the first two scoreless innings at the plate, and their defense continued to play well. Pitcher Jessica Knight extended her current shutout streak to 26 innings.

    The Red Devils had several chances to score in the first three innings but stranded two base runners in each inning.

  • Milam strikes out 11 in district...

    It was Williston and P.K. Yonge playing April 30, for the district championship.

    The game was highlighted by Red Devil pitcher Derick Milam pitching a strong game and a Red Devil seventh inning come-from-behind win, 3-2.

    The Red Devils took an early 1-0 lead as Max White slammed a one-out triple just short of the 450-foot fence. White scored two pitches later as the ball got away from the Blue Wave catcher.

    In the second, third, and fourth innings the Blue Wave left base runners stranded as Milam would get in trouble then strike out hitters to end the innings.
