  • Rodeo is this weekend

    It is Pro Rodeo time at the Williston Horseman's Arena this weekend. It is the 14th Annual Professional Rodeo Cowboys Association Rodeo. It is actually the 10th year that Charley Lowery and his 4-L rodeo Company have ventured down from Georgia to Williston to put on the production. The chairman of the rodeo committee, Duke Reid, and the Williston Horsemen's Association President, Alfred Pendray plan to present Charley Lowery and his rodeo crew a trophy plaque commemorating the 10th year of the successful partnership between the two.

  • 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.
