NCT Begins the Holiday on a Happy Note

Inside the Shark Zone, Friday night December 20, Nature Coast Tech High School went to work at the start of the game against Weeki Wachee High School and got the job completed to begin the vacation season with a special feeling.

In the spirit of the holiday, Nature Coast Tech High School unwrapped the Hornets 62-30, overcoming the disappointing 45-33 loss against Wesley Chapel High School, Tuesday Dec. 17 and improving the overall record 5-2. Nature Coast Tech High School basketball coach Dave Pisarcik said there is still plenty of work for the Sharks to complete.

NCT Girls Basketball beat River Ridge

The holiday of Thanksgiving, it is a time to reflect and give acknowledgement to your accomplishment. For Nature Coast Tech High School girls’ basketball coach Emily Gore, she was thankful Tuesday night, November 26, to leave River Ridge High School for the victory.

Gore watched her team put together one good quarter and was able to officially start the holiday season with a unattractive 41-34, victory over the Royal Knights.

NEW PORT RICHEY, Fla. ---- Fall in the state of Florida there is nothing like it!

Friday evening, October 4, the weather is supposed to be fall like, there is supposed to be cool temperatures, maybe a cool breeze but that kind of autumn weather is for some other place and not for the shore line of the world-famous Moon Lake.

Arriving at River Ridge High School be ready for a hike!

Emotions run high after serious injury during NCT-Wiregrass game

Wesley Chapel, Fla. --- It was definitely ‘Friday the 13th’ on the football field!

Once again, on a warm Friday evening complete with storm clouds gathering and marching slowly across the sky, chasing away the sun as it dipped beyond the horizon. Like those gray clouds that were collecting above in the sky, on the football field below there was a storm brewing.  It was Friday the 13th no less. 

Nature Coast Technical, Having Fun but Focused

BROOKSVILLE, Fla. ---- The weather in this part of the state of Florida, is unpredictable, it could be raining hard but just wait a minute because the storm will pass and the promise of a sunny day is waiting.

Like the weather, this year’s football season for Nature Coast Technical High School is going to be unpredictable.

The excitement of a new beginning, for players and coaches; it is the best time of the season and really who does not like the feel of something brand new?

Sharks impose their will on Bears in blowout victory

District play is arguably as important to high school athletes and coaches as divisional play in the NFL: you can have wins in the conference which can affect playoff seeding, but those wins against teams in your division is so much sweeter, because these teams see each other frequently, and as such are more familiar with schemes and play calling tactics.

The Sharks (1-2) are relying upon the services of nine wide-eyed freshmen, whom makeup over half of Nature Coast’s roster. It’ll be up to the freshmen to help carry the Sharks along a 2017-2018 campaign in which the club has a legitimate shot within Class 3A, District 7 and first-year head coach Brandon Chitwood likes what he’s seeing so far.
