  • Bronson improves, Chiefland still wins

    When Chiefland and Bronson met Monday for the first time since preseason, the result was a tougher, tighter game. Bronson was still smarting from the 14-4 beating they took in the First Pitch tourney, and were looking for revenge. The Indians got a good outing from soph starter Marquis Green and Bronson tried out Seth Steinbacher, both with happy results. After some wicked hitting in the fifth and sixth innings, Chiefland won 9-7.

  • Knight gets 500th as assistant en route to title

    When Gainesville High School basketball varsity assistant Philip Knight got his 500th career win Jan. 30 in a 60-52 barnburner against Eastside, fans who knew him from Bronson and Cedar Key scratched their heads and said, “Wait a second – that don't add up.”

    It does, though. Knight has sat at the right hand of local legend Kelly Beckham since he took over the Bronson program in 1984, and followed him to Gainesville starting this season. Beckham had his 500th win in January 2007. So why did it take Knight two years on the same bullet train cross the same river?

  • Indians freeze out Panthers in 12-1 chiller

    Jeremy Hayes had four strikeouts and allowed three hits in Chiefland's 12-1, five-inning domination over Newberry Friday night. As the thermometer plunged, the Indians worked efficiently, playing good defense and supporting Hayes at the plate. Fans clapped their teeth in appreciation.

  • Good outing for track Indians at Clay meet

    Chiefland track and field took a big leap to start the season, opening on the road at the Clay meet. Both boys' and girls' teams had mixed results overall, but some excellent individual and event performances.

    “We did pretty good, considering it was our first meet,” said girls' head coach Emily Gore.

    “Pretty fair, nothing great,” agreed boys' head coach Wendell Corbin.

  • Chiefland girls beat Ft. White, ready for P.K.

    Chiefland girls racked up another W with a thrilling 6-5 home victory over tough district foe Fort White. The red Lady Indians were last year's district runner-up, knocking off Chiefland's district arch-nemesis Williston in the semifinal with outstanding pitching from then-eighth-grader Taylor Douglas. Chiefland Head Coach Wayne Weatherford was accordingly thrilled to get the best of this very good team.

    “It was a heck of a game,” he said.

  • FHSAA cuts games for next year
