  • Girls place fifth in Kissimmee

    KISSIMMEE - The Williston softball team finished with a 2-1 record in the Kissimmee Klassic tournament last week, good enough for fifth place in the 16-team White Division of the 48-team event.

    The Lady Devils won the first game over Tallahassee Chiles, 12-1, fell to Mount Dora Bible, 11-5, and knocked off Satellite, 6-4. The Devils were scheduled to play Bradford for fifth place but the game was rained out. However, Williston won the coin toss for the spot in the bracket.

    Here are summaries of each game.

  • Middle school boys win

    The Williston Middle School Red Devil baseball team capped off its outstanding season with a 5-1 win over Bradford County in the championship game of the Suwannee Middle School Athletic Conference (SMSAC) Tournament, which was held in Lake Butler last Thursday night.

  • Girls top Santa Fe

    The Williston Lady Red Devils celebrated Senior Night by defeating Santa Fe High School 7-3 Tuesday night. Williston scored twice in the first inning and led the rest of the way, never letting a good Santa Fe team back into the game. On the night reserved for seniors Williston freshmen Crissy Rawls and Tori Stamper came up big. Rawls delivered four hits and scored twice while Stamper pitched a complete game for the Lady Red Devils. Dayna Hunn also had a good night at the plate, knocking in two runs on a double and triple.

  • WHS girls blank Newberry

    A much-needed district victory came along rather easily last week for the Williston softball team, which crunched Newberry, 10-0, in six innings at home.

    With a first-round bye in the district tournament likely, the girls needed this win to assure themselves of one less game in their quest for a district championship.

  • Trinity Catholic whips baseball...

    OCALA - The visit to Trinity Catholic Tuesday night was long and frustrating, and that was just before the game started.

    Willistons baseball team dropped a 15-1, five-inning decision to the Celtics Tuesday night, getting only two hits in the process.

    The Red Devils will return home for their own tournament, which starts with four games on Monday (check schedule in calendar).

  • Williston boys win track title

    With 99.5 points, Williston boys won the team scoring at Tuesday's running of the Levy County Track Meet, and Red Devil girls placed second in their competition with 54.

    Host Cedar Key head coach Brad Penney congratulated Williston coach Becky Hilty on her boys' first-place finish, saying it was the first time in the three-year history of the county meet that any team had beaten the always-dominant Chiefland boys.

    Travis Evans led the Red Devil boys' effort, winning the long jump and 100 meters and anchoring the 4x100 relay.

  • WHS boys top Chiefland

    After the start of a game which seemingly saw Chiefland's baseball team in full control, Williston suddenly finds itself tied for first place and in a position where a coin toss might determine the top seed in the district.

    The Red Devils rallied from a four-run deficit to defeat Chiefland, 11-5, last Thursday night.

  • WMS reaches championship game

    Helped by a series of Chiefland mistakes, the Williston Middle School Red Devils came from behind Tuesday to win their baseball division of the Suwannee Middle Athletic Conference, 8-5, over the visiting Braves.

    Williston was scheduled to play in Lake Butler Thursday for the conference title.

    Trailing 5-4, the Devils entered the bottom of the fifth with the top of the order coming to the plate, the part of the lineup that had been doing damage all afternoon.
