  • Lady Indian on Junior Nationals...

    Special to the Citizen

    Takiya London, a freshman forward on the Chiefland Lady Indians varsity basketball team, has been named a Junior Nationals All Star following her participation in the U.S. Junior Nationals Summer Finals in Augusta, Ga., on Aug. 28-29.

    This event was a showcase for college coaches from Division 1 colleges, including Florida, Florida State, Clemson, Georgetown, Georgia Tech, Jacksonville, Michigan State, University of North Florida, University of South Florida and St. Francis College.

  • Indians outlast Saints

    In the second half Friday night, the Chiefland Indians’ offense and defense faced something they hadn’t seen all year to this point in the season.

    What the Indians faced on their way to a 21-12 victory over Cedar Creek Christian wasn’t in the form of a particular player or scheme; what they faced comes with a better name, adversity.

    The Saints had just taken the opening kickoff of the second half 80 yards for a touchdown and the Indians led 7-6 after they blocked the Saints’ extra point attempt.

    Every team covets that first win of the season, even more so when you play your county rival in a game that hasn’t been played in 10 years.

    “ Our kids took a lot of pride, they wanted to send a message that they’re a team to be reckoned with especially in the county,” said third-year coach Aaron Richardson. Needless to say, the win was earned and the message delivered as Chiefland took care of Bronson Friday night winning 42-14.

    Porch is fielding a strong team with 16 seniors on his 33-man squad and most have been with the Porch for the past 3 years. “A lot of those seniors have played the whole time I was there — a dozen have been with us the whole time,” Porch said.

    “I hope we're ready,” Porch said of the coming season.

  • Building a Dynasty

    The Chiefland Indians are continuing their rebuilding from a couple of dismal seasons in the early part of this decade and the future looks bright. 

    Coach Aaron Richardson and his staff have 37 players on the roster, including 10 seniors returning from a 7-3 season and finishing third in district play in 2013.

    Last year, the team averaged 27.2 points per game. And they posted their second in-a-row win against the Williston Red Devils to retain ownership of the Levy Classic Cup.
