  • Chiefland Rotary fishing...

     The Chiefland Rotary Club's Annual Fishing Tournament in Cedar Key turns 12 this year and it is growing up. This year the weigh-in will move from Capital City Bank's parking lot to Cedar Key City Park and there will be music, food, beverages and fun for everyone.

  • Going for a historic third state...

    It was a nail biter for a while, but the Chiefland Lady Indians won the 1A Region 4 title and a berth in the state 1A softball championships next week in Vero Beach.

    The team is 26-1 overall and undefeated in District play. The players dedicated the game to former Indians baseball player Richard Cabeza Jr. who died last week. 

    Chiefland meets Franklin in the state semifinals at Historic Dodgertown in Vero Beach on Wednesday, May 4 at 2 p.m. 

  • Lady Indians take on Frostproof...

    The Chiefland Lady Indians, who clinched the 1A District 7 softball title last week, will be playing the Frostproof Lady Bulldogs in the first round of the regional playoffs.

    Last week's district title game between the Frostproof Lady Bull Dogs and the Taylor-Pierson Lady Wildcats for the 1A District 8 title was postponed to rain and was played Monday night. Taylor won 3-0.

    The Lady Indians host the first round game at home on Thursday, April 21 at 7 p.m.

  • Lady Indians pull out a close...

    It was Senior Night on Monday and the Chiefland Lady Indians were losing in the fifth inning 7-3 to Crystal River.

    This seemed to be the turning point! I have never seen a team play so well under pressure. This is a great thing for coaches as usually it is the coaches that have to have a pep talk or make a team believe in themselves.

    This team of Lady Indians get out on the field and at bat and take care of business. I am not sure that I have seen a position they have been put in where they cave under pressure.

  • Football alumni can relive...

    The gauntlet has been thrown down. Bragging rights are on the line.

    It’s the gridiron battle between Chiefland and Dixie County to end them all as alumni will take the field on May 7 at 7 p.m.

    At stake are pride, bragging rights and probably a few sore muscles. This is full contact football under the lights.

  • Celebrate Gopher Tortoise on...

    On Sunday, April 10, the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission (FWC) and its partners will celebrate Gopher Tortoise Day for the first time in Florida.

    Go to GopherTortoiseDayFL.com for ideas on being a part of this day and other gopher tortoise-related events and activities all year long.

    Gopher tortoises live in every county of Florida and are known for their extraordinary digging skills.

  • Lady Indians getting wiser as...

    The Chiefland Lady Indians just keep looking better and better! 

    Overall they are 20-1 and that loss was to Mayo who they have already beaten since.  In the district they are still undefeated and nationally ranked at 267 and State ranked at 37.  If you haven’t seen them in action yet, come on out for a game against Oak Hall in Gainesville on Friday at 7 p.m.

    On the road last week they shut out Bronson with a score of 11-1.

  • Track team meets Trenton today...

    Chiefland Indians track Coach Harry Hutson says the team is ready to meet Trenton at home this afternoon at 3:30 p.m., but the tracksters have their eyes on the district meet that is coming up in two weeks.

    The Indians are just coming off a great performance in the County Championship Track Meet in Cedar Key on Monday where they won the boys and girls overall titles.

    “That County Championship in Cedar Key — Brad Penny does a good job of hosting it,” Hutson said. “He has done a good job of carrying track and field in this county.”
