  • Chipoletti: 'We will build...

    In a game that Red Devil first year Head Coach Derek Chipoletti referred to as a “glorified scrimmage,” the Red Devils had some good moments. They also had some not so good moments.

    The Red Devils held a come-from-behind six-point lead after scoring two fourth quarter touchdowns. However, with just 46.6 seconds remaining in the game, the Crystal River Pirates Heath Hernandez hit Pedro Diaz with a 39-yard pass for the tying touchdown. Antonio Maldonado split the uprights for the winning point, giving the Pirates a 21-20 victory over the Red Devils.

    The Williston High School Varsity Baseball team held their awards banquet at the Williston Golf and Country Club on Monday evening May 18.

  • Devils drop heartbreaker to...

    It was anybody’s game until Keystone’s seventh-inning hit that ended it all, giving the Indians the 5-4 win over Williston. With one out in the bottom of the seventh, Keystone’s Brett Anderson singled past short; bringing in Clayton Mosely for the game-winning run.

    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.
