  • Indians eye tough 2011 football slate

    Chiefland’s 2011 football schedule is complete and features six home games, including a kickoff classic on Aug. 26 against Victory Christian.

    The 2011 schedule will mirror the 2012 schedule, with Victory Christian agreeing to play CHS two years in a row.

  • Lady Indians explode during blowout win

    Chiefland’s softball team was ready to explode after 11 days without a game.

    Add in the fact they’d only scored two runs in the first two games — both losses, by the way — and the tension could burst pipes.

    Enter Branford, just what the doctor ordered to relieve the stress. The Lady Indians  announced their bid to repeat as district champions with authority by opening 5-2A play with a convincing 22-0 win against Branford.

  • Blue Wave rolls again

    Chiefland almost got that P.K. Yonge monkey off its back before finally losing 12-10 against the Blue Wave on Friday.

    The Indians (4-2 overall, 2-1 in District 5-2A play) trailed 10-2 before rallying with two runs in the fifth and seven more in the sixth to take an 11-10 lead. However, two errors and three hits by the Blue Wave (6-0, 4-0) allowed it to regain the lead heading into the final inning.  P.K. Yonge left-handed pitcher Justin Landers (2-0) retired three of the final four Indians to complete the win.
