    The top-seeded Chiefland softball team was a heavy favorite going into its District 1A-7 semifinal game against fourth-seeded Branford last Tuesday.

The 40th Anniversary edition Saturday was no different.

  • Allow me to reintroduce myself

    Could they flip the switch when it counted most?

    It was a question that haunted Chiefland softball coaches and supporters.

    Would “senioritis” and the distraction of college softball scholarships and the rest of it deter from the drive that put three rings on the seniors’ fingers?

    Would the players fail to peak in time to earn a fourth straight trip to the state finals Vero Beach?
