The past two seasons, the Nature Coast girls golf team hasn’t done a whole lot of losing. The Lady Sharks haven’t dropped a regular-season match during that span, collected two district crowns and even added a regional title last year.
So far in 2017, the only opponent they haven’t managed to overcome is Mother Nature. In two weeks, they’ve only completed nine holes once, against a Central squad that couldn’t even field a full lineup.

So far this season, the same narrative has followed Central’s De’Vonta Smith. He has tried to escape the shadow of his cousin DeShawn Smith, who led the nation in rushing and scoring during a historic campaign with Nature Coast in 2015.
On Friday night, the senior running back managed to put together a statistical performance even his cousin never quite matched, setting a new county single-game rushing record in the Bears’ 63-28 thumping of Weeki Wachee.
