  • 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.
