  • Homecoming, district opener this Friday for Chiefland
    Football teams often risk becoming distracted during homecoming week, leaving the actual opponent to become more of an afterthought to the week’s festivities. Chiefland shouldn’t have to worry this week, however, as its homecoming tilt this Friday against Branford is also its district opener. It’s also only the second game of the season for the Indians.

The 6-foot-2 multi-sport star is too busy making college visits, playing weekend fall ball, and trying to help lead her volleyball squad back to the final four. Volleyball was more of a stopgap for London in the past – a way to keep in shape and hang out with her friends – but that’s starting to change.

While the Junior Varsity team was sent home due to the poor weather conditions on Thursday, Jan. 28, Chiefland Middle High School’s Varsity Baseball team moved to the covered batting facility on the school’s grounds to work on.
  • Lady Indians keep Bronson on its toes
    By Kelley Franklin Wyman Correspondent Upon taking this assignment I was excited and thought just because I know the game of basketball it would be easy. Boy was I wrong.    I can remember as a Chiefland Lady Indian athlete waiting for the paper to come out and see what was in there about me or my team.  I asked Miss Lou at the Citizen how do I write this, she said to write it the way I would tell it if I were sitting out with my nana on the porch swing.  So I thought about that as I watched the game…
