Yellow Jackets sting ‘Canes, Conchs during spring break trip

The first year was so nice, the St. Augustine High School boys lacrosse team made a repeat trip to the Keys this week, first to play Coral Shores on Friday at the Tavernier campus and then Key West on Saturday at The Back Yard. Though they came to play in 2018, their mission last year[…]

Three-game nights the norm to avert mid-summer playoffs

It was a full night of action on the second week of the Key West Coed Softball League play with three games on the schedule. In past seasons, the league contested just two games each Tuesday night, but organizer Bob Maun wanted to get the season done and over before they head into the summer[…]

Players enter spring break with much-improved skills

The level of play has risen significantly in the Key West Girls Softball Recreational League over the first four weeks of the season.

Lady Conchs post 4th district win

Nothing broken about this record with a pair of teams still unfazed

Not an easy thing to do with such good teams in the 14-and-Under and 12-and-Under youth league. The Iberia Bank Ballers keep fighting two very tough[…]

Warriors grind out win against Conchs for second district loss

For the first three years of its existence, the Key West High School boys lacrosse team was the class of District 32, three-time champs, with nary a loss in conference play. But, the balance of power comes and goes with Keys schools, which can be attributed to graduation and team issues such as grades, disciplinary[…]

PREP WRESTLING: RECORD BREAKER: Garcia’s first full season sets new school marks in wins and pins

For the first time this season, after a lifetime of wrestling, Key West High senior Jesse Garcia was finally able to compete in a full season after injuries decimated his sophomore and junior campaigns. He quickly made up for lost time as the 182-pounder placed in every tournament he wrestled in this season, in the[…]

Lady ‘Canes remain on top of game

The Coral Shores High softball team traveled north to Miami to play the only team that beat them this year — Carrollton — and came back with a convincing 13-3 win. The first time the two teams met, Carrollton beat Coral Shores by one run in a low-scoring, 10-inning battle. This time the ‘Canes’ bats[…]
