    When senior Aleaha Rhoomes stole the ball in the backcourt for a breakaway layup in the fourth quarter, given her Chiefland squad a 15-point lead last Tuesday against Cedar Key with just three minutes remaining, CKS coach David Tomlin instructed his squad to just keep playing, regardless of the score.

    CMHS had five players with at least seven points, including junior Naja Martin (14 points) and sophomore Courtney Hayes (11 points), who were each in double figures for the Indians.

    The matchup started to swing back in Cedar Key’s favor in the third, as the Sharks chomped away at the deficit to make it a three-point margin.

  • Hamilton caps sweep of Eagle Classic in win over Bronson

    The final game of the Eagle Classic Basketball Tournament in Bronson re-confirmed who had the best tournament of the six participating teams.

    Hamilton County from Jasper won its third game in a row with ease, defeating Bronson 70-40 Friday on its way to collecting the Eagle Classic trophy.

    The Trojans (9-3) showed why they were Class 1A state semifinalists in 2016 – and a state finalist in 2014 – as they physically dominated inside for a decisive edge in offensive rebounds and pulled away with 30 points in the second quarter.

  • Early deficit dooms Eagles

    The Bronson boys’ basketball team played Taylor County even for 3 ½ quarters in the teams’ opener in the Eagle Classic Tournament in the BMHS gym last Wednesday.

    The damage dealt to the Eagles in the first four minutes proved enough, however, in a 59-47 loss to the Class 5A Bulldogs from Perry.

    Taylor County rushed to a 17-3 lead midway through the opening quarter behind several layups that were set up by back-court steals.

  • Shorthanded Indians suffer losses in Eagle Classic Basketball Tournament

    The Chiefland boys’ basketball team ended the Eagle Classic Tournament in Bronson on a pair of lopsided losses last Thursday and Friday.

    The Indians fell 65-27 to Jasper-Hamilton County on Thursday. The Trojans, who made the Class 1A state final four last season, and the state finals in 2014, went 3-0 in the tourney to earn the Eagle Classic trophy.

  • Bronson picks up dual wins over Chiefland in district matchups

    The Chiefland boys’ basketball team enjoyed a late flurry of offense in its loss to Bronson last Tuesday.

    The rally might prove to be a moment that propels a struggling Chiefland offense in the future, but it was too little too late on this night, as the Eagles led by as many as 26 in beating their rival Indians 56-47.
