  • 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.

  • 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.

  • 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
