Lady Indians maintain winning ways after holiday break

A solid run through its holiday tournament games, punctuated by a win over Providence, gave way to the Chiefland girls’ basketball team’s best week of the season, as it came back from break with convincing wins over Cedar Key and Bell.

The victories set the Lady Indians on a three-game winning streak heading into their Jan. 9 home tilt against Fort White (played after press deadline). It also made them winners of four of their last five, and they hadn’t lost in regulation in seven games.

On Jan. 2, in Cedar Key, the Lady Sharks knotted things up with CMHS at 19-19 with two minutes remaining in the half on a long 2 by Makalynn Bowling. Chiefland, though, responded with a long Colby Reed bucket and a bank shot from J’Mia McNeil to go up 24-19 for the break.

The Lady Indians never surrendered their advantage for the remainder, as they clung narrowly to their lead in the third before establishing some breathing space in the final frame behind a combined 15 points from Sierra Norris and Courtney Hayes.
