  • Braves win SMAC baseball crown

     Chiefland Middle School's baseball team won the Souther Middle School Athletic Conference championship in dramatic fashion last Friday, topping Bradford Middle, 2-1, in eight innings.

    James Miller brought home the winning run for the Braves in extra innings, hitting a bases-loaded sacrfice fly to score Payton Parnell from third and break the tie.

  • Indians surge late

    It took a bit longer than usual, but the No.2-seeded Chiefland High School found its rhythm in the fifth inning.

    Home runs from Clenton Wasson and Bo Beauchamp lifted the Indians past No. 7 Bronson, 7-2, in the opening game of the District 2A-5 Tournament on Monday.

    For the first few innings of the game, held at Trenton High School on an immaculate field,  sharp pitching from the Eagles’ Seth Steinbacher kept the Indians quiet. Chiefland coach Kyle Parnell figured that was to be expected.
