  • Great game, but Palatka triumphs

    GAINESVILLE -- It was one of those high school baseball games that keeps you on the edge of your seat all the way. It was great pitching on both sides, and you just kept waiting for a break.

    Unfortunately for Williston, that break went Palatka’s way.

    The Panthers knocked off Williston, 5-0, last Friday night in a thriller in what was billed as the Alachua County Tournament at Gainesville High School.

    They didn’t need speed-up rules in this one, as it took exactly 89 minutes to play the seven-inning contest.

  • Softball team tops Dixie

    The Williston Lady Red Devils have changed their batting order, changed a few player positions and on Tuesday April 7, the Dixie County Lady Bears fell to the Red Devils 10-2.

    Laurrin Howard took the mound for the Red Devils and gave up just four hits, striking out six, and received help from freshman catcher Kaitlyn Bannon. Bannon gunned down two Bears trying to steal second base, to break up scoring threats.

  • Red Devil Challenge starts April...

    The Williston High School baseball team will host the 7th Annual “Red Devil Challenge” baseball tournament April 13-15.

    “This tournament is used to get ready for the district tournament and the state playoffs” said Coach Jim Smith, now in his 13th season as head coach of the Red Devils.

    WHS currently has a 13-3 record and 9-0 in district play. They also have a 33 game winning streak in district games played at home and have clinched the regular season district championship for the fifth consecutive year.

  • Devils assured of top seed in...

    Williston High School’s baseball team cemented its hold on the top seed in the district standings with an emotional 7-4 win over Fort White on Tuesday night.

    The win left the Red Devils with a 9-0 district mark, with only a game at Chiefland in nine days coming before the tournament. They have been assured of the top seed for the event.

    Damon Ming pitched into the fifth inning, but had to work his way out of trouble in each frame.

  • Williston Middle wins baseball...

    FORT WHITE -- Time ran out on the undefeated Lake Butler Tigers middle school baseball team at Fort White Thursday evening.

    The Tigers were the number one seed going into the SMSAC tournament and were riding an undefeated regular season.

    The Williston Middle School Red Devils had lost to the Tigers by big numbers in their two regular season meetings.

    After downing Chiefland Middle School 9-0 the Red Devils were set to play in the championship game against the undefeated Tigers.

  • Stamper pitches gem as Red...

    It was nearly a perfect game for Lady Red Devil Pitcher Tori Stamper as she faced just 12 batters in order in the first four innings recording five strike outs and not allowing a ball hit out of the infield or a single base runner.

  • Devils keep on winning in...

    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.
