    Volleyball Preps

  3. Jefferson loses quarterback Cade Weldon for the season


    TAMPA — Jefferson was supposed to be one of the top teams, if not the team to beat in Tampa Bay this season, with Division I talent all over its roster and on both sides of the ball. Junior quarterback Cade Weldon was a big part of that potential, and coach Jeremy Earle glowed when he spoke of the 6-foot-3, …

    1. Armwood (1-0)

    This week's opponent: bye

    Scoop: Once again, the Hawks are winning with a suffocating defense and a punishing run game. Armwood started the season by pounding Plant City 49-7. It was the first time the Hawks had given up a touchdown in a regular-season game since Sept. …

  5. Sunday Morning QB: Week 1 highlights


    Team of the week

    Palm Harbor University. Not only did the Hurricanes snap their neighborhood rival's 25-game regular-season win streak by beating East Lake 14-10, but they also snapped a six game losing streak to the Eagles.

    Coach Ryan Benjamin, right, better not get too attached to that beard. Thanks to a bet with his players, he'll be sporting nothing but a mustache if River Ridge keeps winning.  (David W. Doonan | Special to the Times)
  6. Week 1 standings


    Here's how the various districts are shaing up in Tampa Bay:

  7. Cross country: Mitchell's Thompson, Koos place second in Wildcat Invitational


    WESLEY CHAPEL — The cross country season on the North Suncoast typically kicks off with a meet at Anclote.

  8. Football: Ridgewood 35, Weeki Wachee 34


    NEW PORT RICHEY — The first half featured smashmouth football with neither offense getting much going, but then the offenses got rolling and Ridgewood had to withstand a late Weeki Wachee rally.

  9. Pinellas Game of the Week: Pinellas Park 21, Osceola 14


    SEMINOLE — Pinellas Park coach Kenny Crawford has a way with words, some of which are not suitable for print. At halftime, Crawford used a few of those words with his team trailing by two touchdowns to Osceola.

    The Patriots were listening.

    Pinellas Park’s Alonzo McCray, who scored twice, pushes for yards in the fourth quarter. The Patriots defeated the Warriors for the seventh consecutive time.
  10. Football: Palm Harbor University 14, East Lake 10


    PALM HARBOR — With 24 seconds left and his team trailing 10-7 Friday night, Palm Harbor University running back Jamaine Derogene ran in from the 1 to give the Hurricanes a huge 14-10 upset victory, snapping East Lake's 25-game regular-season winning streak.

  11. Football: Clearwater 38, Tarpon Springs 0


    CLEARWATER — First impressions say a lot, and the initial look at the 2015 Clearwater Tornadoes was impressive, indeed.

  12. North Suncoast Game of the Week: River Ridge 10, Mitchell 7


    NEW PORT RICHEY — River Ridge's offensive game plan was pretty simple. It was Chris Schwarz left. Chris Schwarz right. Schwarz. Schwarz. Schwarz. Thirty-four times Schwarz.

    Knight running back Chris Schwarz (40) breaks a tackle. The 2015 high school season kicked off for the River Ridge Knights who hosted the Mitchell Mustangs at River Ridge High School on Friday evening, August 28, 2015.
  13. Football: Brandon 31, Strawberry Crest 3


    DOVER — Brandon's opener at Strawberry Crest started as a defensive struggle with teams exchanging three-and-outs and the Eagles led 3-0 at halftime. The Eagles flipped a switch at halftime and, after the Chargers tied it 3-3, Brandon scored 28 unanswered points in the second half.

  14. Hillsborough Game of the Week: Lennard 46, Spoto 13


    RUSKIN — Lennard seemingly came out of nowhere last season, capturing a school-best seven wins. And if Friday was any indication, 2014 was far from smoke and mirrors.

     Terence Williams (1) of Spoto made a catch during the first quarter of the game against Lennard on Friday August 28, 2015 at Lennard High School in Ruskin.
  15. Football: Sickles 16, Alonso 0


    TAMPA — Before Friday night's season opener, Sickles hadn't posted a shutout in nearly two years. Quite frankly, with Hillsborough County's leading rusher on their side, the Gryphons didn't have to in order to win games.

  16. Football: Tampa Bay Tech 18, Jefferson 0


    TAMPA — Tampa Bay Tech celebrated its biggest plays of Friday night's season opener. Jefferson would rather forget its biggest.

  17. Football: Clearwater Central Catholic 34, Berkeley Prep 23


    TAMPA — Junior C.J. Cotman scored three touchdowns, the final one a clinching 84-yard run with 1:59 remaining, as Clearwater Central Catholic opened the season with a 34-23 victory at Berkeley Prep on Friday night.

  18. Football: Steinbrenner 13, Gaither 0


    LUTZ — Steinbrenner seized control from the start and refused to relinquish it Friday night. After an opening-drive interception on defense, Steinbrenner scored 13 unanswered points while its defense held to secure a Week 1 shutout and the program's first win over Gaither.

  19. Football: Robinson 19, Blake 6


    TAMPA — Lead by a dominating defense and a multifaceted offensive attack, Robinson defeated Blake in both teams' openers. Robinson held Blake's offense scoreless while keeping the Yellow Jackets to two first downs for the game. Blake never had a serious scoring chance and the Knights defense sacked Samuel Oxendine …

  20. Football: Armwood 49, Plant City 7


    SEFFNER — Armwood opened the season in dominant fashion, beating Plant City 49-7 behind the legs and arm of Darrian McNeal and their trademark suffocating defense. While some of the big names from the back-to-back state finalist teams of the past two seasons have moved on, the Hawks return plenty of talent, size …
