  • Chiefland 's varsity cheerleaders
  • Chiefland's JV volleyball team undefeated

    After losing the opening game at Dixie County, Chiefland’s junior varsity volleyball team roared back to win the final two sets to remain a perfect 3-0 on the season.

    The team is coached by Tevin Bennett, a 2001 Trenton High graduate who played setter for the Lady Tigers.

    “They played really well tonight,” Bennett said. “They learned a brand new rotation yesterday and still did well. We moved Ashley Davies to libero and that's what changed our rotation.”

  • Cappy's Corner: Who cares about sports?

    “They wouldn’t complain if they didn’t care.” That was the response of my first editor when a reader questioned my opinion in a column. That was in Miami, the one in Oklahoma, not in Florida. Where the last syllable of the town’s name is a “muh,” not a “mee.”

  • Lady Indians are good, no joke

    The ball sailed over the heads of Taylore Fuller and Shelby Mills as both were still cracking up at something one said between serves. Hailey Gerhard made a nice dig to save it from the back row, then Meagan Morgan passed it to Fuller, who had stopped smiling in time to hammer home a devastating kill.
