  • Devils fall to Dixie

    The Williston Red Devils fell to the Dixie County Bears 61-52 on Friday night in Cross City. The game was an exciting match-up between two teams that bring out the best in each other.

    The winless Bears came into this game with a 0-3-season record but played like a team possessed. Dixie's all-state running back Rodney Scott would not be stopped, as he ran for over 300 yards and scored 5 touchdowns.

  • Williston boys win cross country...

    Upstarts and veterans alike took home hardware from Williston's cross country meet, featuring teams from Williston, Chiefland, Cedar Key, Bradford and Fort White. Chiefland varsity girls, in only their second year as a team, took home the girls' crown. Amie Biehl, who paced off Allie Wheeler last year (Wheeler has since transferred), grabbed a new pacer in JaRobyn Rome and won the girls' race in 26:06. Rome had 26:58 as her final; April Geiger was third with 28:31 and Mariah Mather was fifth with 29:11.

  • Local football team looking for...

    Gulf Coast Panthers football is back for its third season after finishing 10-4 last year and league runner up. Club owner and president Lee Bell and VP Mark Marrazo say the team is looking for a few good men to fill the ranks.

    "We're looking for players, coaches, sponsors and chain crew," he said. "We want people to know we're here, we're sticking around, and we want to expand and get even better."

  • Champion barrel racer to be at...

    A Champion Barrel Racer, Sabra O'Quinn, one of many women in hot pursuit of the Southeastern Championship year-end title, is currently in the lead and looking to win the 2008 championship. Next week end, Octc. 3-4 , the Williston Horeseman's Club member will be running in the PRCA Rodeo at the Williston Horseman's Park Arena as she tries to extend her lead in this title race.

  • Trinity too much for Williston

    It was easy to get out of breath last Friday night just watching Trinity Catholic and Williston play football.

    Although the outcome was undesirable, it was a very entertaining game as Trinity outlasted Williston, 63-42, in a non-district contest at Williston.

    The win left Trinity at 3-0, while Williston dropped to 2-1. The Red Devils play at Dixie County this week.

  • Devils defeat Chiefland

    Yes, it did get a little tight in the second half, but Williston handled the pressure and the fundamentals well to ease past Chiefland, 35-21, in an intra-county football game last Friday night.

    Williston will play host to Trinity Catholic this week, with a 7:30 game Friday night. Each team is 2-0.

    The Williston volleyball team fell to Cornerstone, 25-18, 25-14 and 25-13 on Tuesday night.

    The Devils faced two big problems with the visitors, two girls who dominated at the net. Senior Melissa Gomes had 10 kills and four blocks to lead Cornerstone as she took charge on the front line. Her teammate, sophomore Michaele Mantel, also had 10 kills but was also used as a setter, getting 11 assists.

  • Devils trounce P.K. Yonge

    The Williston Red Devils squashed the P.K. Yonge Blue Wave 58-20 Friday night at Williston's Booster Stadium.

    P.K. Yonge opened the scoring in the first quarter on a long pass from Carlon Hunt to Devin Wilson for a touchdown. Later in the first quarter Williston answered with a touchdown of their own when Courtney Days fought his way into the end zone from five yards out. The extra point kick by Chris Priest was good to tie the game at 7-7.
