  • Chiefland pitcher pledges to Santa Fe

    Chiefland's Amber Richardson has verbally committed to play fastpitch softball for the Santa Fe Saints next year, SF coach Chris Ahern announced in a press release.

    “Amber throws the ball hard,” said Ahern, “and her moving pitches jump pretty well.  She will be an asset to our pitching staff, and should be able to contribute in the lineup as well.”

  • Cappy's Corner: Take recruiting into your own hands

    Parents and players always ask me what they can do to attract college attention. I'm no expert. Anyone who calls themselves a recruiting expert is a joke because there is no exact science to recruiting.

    For full disclosure, I've covered more than 400 Division I games, mostly football, baseball and men's basketball. I don't even want to begin to count the number of high school games.

  • Levy Raiders win final preseason game

    The Levy County Raiders beat the Belleview Sabers 6-0 during the team's final preseason game on Jan. 12 in Williston.

  • Bronson 'grew up' in Branford loss

    After a disappointing loss against P.K. Yonge to open the season, a young Bronson club matured during a 9-2 home loss against Branford on Tuesday.

    Facing a 6-0 deficit after three innings, Bronson kept battling. Branford right-hander Donny Johnson retired 10 of the first 12 batters he faced before the Eagles finally scratched for a couple of runs in the fourth.

    Matt Olivarria singled and Brock Brower worked a two-out walk. Both would later score on an error.

  • Indians blast Eagles

    Shortstop Timmy Reidy went sliding to his right on one knee to backhand a sharp grounder in the hole before firing to first base. The ball beat the runner by a step, capping Chiefland’s 11-3 win at Bronson on Thursday.

  • Chiefland picks 6th

    When Josh Martinez fell behind 0-2 in the count with two outs in the sixth inning against Branford, Chiefland players started searching for their gloves in the dugout.

    It wasn’t that they didn’t have confidence in their teammate. It’s just that the odds are stacked against any batter getting on base when down 0-2, and players figured they’d be heading out to play defense in a matter of seconds.
