  • In with a bang; out with a sigh . . . 2008–goodbye

    While I always look forward to the dawn of a new year, I am nonetheless saddened by the passing of the old year.

    Most people celebrate New Year’s Eve as a time to cast away the old and embrace the new. I do too, to a certain extent, but there’s always a small bit of the evening that I claim as a reflective period to remember, to mourn and of course, to laugh.

    Indian fans filled the bleachers at the Bronson gym Saturday as Chiefland boys beat the Eagles 49-45, holding off overtime, it seemed, by the breath in a referee's whistle.

    Cantrell Richardson got the Indians off to a good start, taking the dish from Josh Wasson for a three off the left wing. Wasson was fouled on his next trip and made two free throws, making it 5-0 Chiefland before James Rivers got to the line for Bronson, making two.

  • Indians clawed by Panthers

  • Indians go Bear hunting

    The Indians are going Bear hunting! CHS had a pep rally Wednesday to get fired up for Chiefland's Friday home game against tough district rival Dixie County. Basketball Head Coach Mark Lundy told the crowd that the Indians are currently tied with the Bears for third in the district, which also includes conference leaders P.K. Yonge and Williston. If Chiefland beats Dixie Friday, the Indians would take over third place and improve their seeding for the district tournament, which starts in February.

    Chiefland girls had another tough outing against district foe P.K. Yonge, to whom they also lost in the first half of the season. The Lady Wave brought their fullcourt trapping defense into Chiefland Thursday, along with deadeye shooting by Jaterra Bonds and Niya Johnson, and left with a 65-18 win.

    Katelyn Allen led Lady Indian scoring with six points and Renashia Bowers and Janessa Barrios followed with four points each.

    The Lady Indians played much better the following night against Dixie County, falling 39-33 after nearly recovering from a 20-9 first half deficit.
