    It meant everything and nothing all at once.

    Wildwood High quarterback Sean Hensley knelt down for the final three plays Thursday night as his Wildcat football team beat South Sumter High 14-10 in a “football classic” at the Raiders field.

    The game doesn’t count in any record books but it meant that Wildwood beat South Sumter for the first time in years.

    Junior Hensley was a major part of that. In the first quarter, Hensley hit freshman Kendrick Brown for a 23-yard scoring pass. Hensley would also later score on a one-yard quarterback sneak.

  • World Series: Here they come!...

    “I feel good, we feel great. We won the state title,” said Mike Eastburn of the Bushnell Dixie state championship win last week.

    After a full ball season, tournaments and the state win, the Sumter County team returned home to prepare for their next stop – Gonzalez, La. and the World Series in Dixie Youth Baseball.

    While it was excitement on the way to state, Eastburn said, “You know, we’re really not nervous, because we were nervous about state, but now everybody’s just happy.”

    The Bushnell Dixie Youth League boys are deep into their battle for the World Series title this week, vying in Gonzalez, La.

    “They had their first game last Saturday and they lost,” said proud grandparent Jamie Adams, on the road with the kids.

    But that loss was short-lived as they moved into Sunday and took North Carolina.

    “The game went 11 innings. It took them five extra innings to win,” Adams said, noting the final score was 13-7.

  • Wildwood Day Camp cancelled

    City officials say the current economic climate is likely the cause of a drop off in registration for its Summer Day Camp program this year.

    Wildwood’s Summer Day Camp is a city-hosted recreation program based at the Wildwood Community Center.

    Despite rates described by city Parks and Recreation Coordinator Jason Hargrove as reasonable, $55 per child for city residents and $100 for participants from other parts of the county, registration numbers were very low.
