By Claude Lewis

GAINESVILLE _What a great night for Chiefland High volleyball!

Facing elimination with their backs to the wall, the Lady Indians reached down and won three straight games over rival Dixie County in Tuesday night's thrilling Class 3A District 5 semifinal at a hot and sticky gym at P.K. Yonge High.

The scores were 15-25, 22-25, 25-13, 25-18, 16-14.

The victory advances Chiefland to Thursday's 7 p.m. championship against the winner of Tuesday's late match between top-seed and host P.K. Yonge and fifth-seed Fort White.

It also assures the Lady Indians a berth in the upcoming Class 3A Regional Tournament.

Chiefland, which has played good volleyball down the stretch, put its record over the .500 mark with the upset of Dixie. The Lady Indians have won four straight to move their record to 11-10.

Chiefland lost twice to Dixie during the regular season. Dixie was seeded second for the tournament and the Lady Indians were third seed.

Down two games to none against the Lady Bears, the Lady Indians dug down and proved that enthusiasm, work and determination can overcome tall odds.

There were numerous heroes.
