  • Spring football erupts at South...

    Spring is here and once again it’s time to start thinking about football with young players blocking, tackling and sweating off some pounds.

    South Sumter High School’s Spring Football is already underway with practices at the Raiders’ practice facility.

    The heat will be on as players are trying to learn the sport and trying to earn starting assignments.

    There are 60 athletes trying for positions, hoping to impress the coaches.

    They practice 4 to 6 p.m. Monday through Friday.

  • Offensive line shines as South...

    Before the Spring Classic Friday night, South Sumter High head football coach Inman Sherman was concerned about the Raider offensive line.

    After the game, let’s just say he won’t be losing sleep over that unit.

    The offensive line pushed and shoved Leesburg as South Sumter took the classic 40-20 at the Raiders field.

    The Raiders were able to run for 343 yards on 54 carries and Leesburg had just 185 yards.

  • Mitchell becomes first WW girl...

    Ronisha Mitchell made some history Wednesday.

    The Wildwood High School girls basketball standout became the first Wildwood High girl to sign for an NCAA Division I scholarship in at least 20 years and possible was the first such signee in the school’s history. She signed with Jacksonville University.

  • Crystal River downs young...

    Many high school athletic coaches tell people how their team is so young.

    Wildwood High baseball coach Adam Cardona’s team truly is so very young.

    The Wildcats (2-11) have a team dominated by sophomores and seventh graders. It’s more of a mixture of a junior varsity and a middle school team than a varsity team.

    That’s a major reason why the Crystal River High baseball team downed Wildwood 11-2 Wednesday afternoon, April 7, on a beautiful, sunny “chamber of commerce weather” day at Mike Hampton Field.

  • Wildcats enjoy best season

    There is crying in softball.

    Wildwood High head softball coach Mary Jo Cardona proved that last Thursday night.

    It was Seniors Night and she shed some tears thinking about the athletes who were about to play their last regular season home game at Wildwood High’s softball field.

    She could smile afterward, though.

    The Wildcats insured a winning season when they downed Lecanto Seven Rivers Christian 11-1 in five innings.

    The victory made the Wildcats 11-8, the best record in Cardona’s three years coaching at the school.

  • Warden Stollar sign letters of...

    South Sumter High’s softball team is enjoying its best season in years (12-7) and two of the key players are cashing in with scholarships.

    Senior catcher Lindsey Warden and third baseman Kenna Stollar signed letters of intent to play softball at Pasco-Hernando Community College in New Port Richey.

    Both athletes are also stars in the classroom. Warden has a 3.75 grade point average and Stollar has a 3.4 GPA.
