  • Bronson’s Cooper finishes third...

    Glen Cooper of Bronson Middle High School placed third in the Boys 1A 200 Meter Dash and fourth in the Boys 100 Meter Dash to earn a couple of medals in the Class 1A Florida High School Track and Field Finals at IMG Academy in Bradenton.

    Cooper edged out the fourth-place competitor by 0.005 of a second with a time of 22.48 seconds for the top-three finish. His 11.16 seconds time in the 100 was just 0.02 short of the third-place mark.

    Cooper ran the 200 in 22.40 in his regional championship win, and came in at 11.20 to place first in the 100 at that prior meet.

  • Fun in Frostproof

    In its district championship game against Trenton, the Chiefland softball team was victimized by a conspiracy of subpar defense and the Lady Tigers’ speed and short game.

  • Not without a fight

    The Chiefland baseball team proved itself a plucky bunch this season with its collection of comeback wins and its youthful competitive fight.

    In the District 1A-7 semifinal round last Tuesday, the Indians, who returned just one starter from last year’s state finalist and district champion club, once again weren’t in the mood to go away quietly against a more experienced team.

  • Sophomoric thump

    The Chiefland baseball team was twice at the precipice late in its 1A-7 district quarterfinal tilt against Dixie County Monday, needing a play to rescue its hopes of advancing to the semifinal round on Tuesday.

  • Lady Indians clinch fourth...

    The top-seeded Chiefland softball team was a heavy favorite going into its District 1A-7 semifinal game against fourth-seeded Branford last Tuesday.

    A lot was on the line, however, including a program-best fourth straight state playoff berth, to keep the Lady Indians on their toes for any upset bid the Lady Buccaneers might’ve hoped for.

  • Baseball districts in Branford

    The Chiefland baseball team opens the District 1A-7 tournament Monday, May 1, at 4 p.m. against Dixie County in Branford.

    The winner plays Tuesday against Trenton.

    The Bears and the defending champion Indians each finished 4-6 in district play and split their pair of regular season meetings, as CMHS avenged a 10-9 road loss in Cross City with a dominant 11-2 win at home over Dixie County on April 11.

  • Chiefland hosts softball...

    The District 1A-7 softball tournament, hosted at Chiefland Middle High School, kicks off Monday April 24 and finishes with its championship game on Friday April 28 in Chiefland.

    The Lady Indians are coming off back-to-back district championships and three-straight Class 1A state titles.

    In 2014, CMHS lost in the district finals to Dixie County, before knocking off the Bears 3-2 in the regional playoffs, setting the stage for the team’s first state championship.

  • Chiefland baseball bats erupt...

    An inning that included a little bit of everything from the Chiefland offense helped catapult the Indians past Dixie County for an 11-2 win in district play last Tuesday in Chiefland.

    Chiefland, which collected a 7-4 win at Newberry Monday, finished 1A-7 play at 4-6 and sat at 8-6 overall heading into its game at Alachua-Santa Fe on Tuesday.

    The Bears were 4-5 in district action (11-8 overall) before their final district tilt Tuesday versus Bell.

  • Lady Indians prevail in district...

    The Chiefland softball team had some regrets coming out of its second meeting with Trenton last Friday.

    The Lady Indians failed to score nine of their base runners in the final four frames, as they again struggled to put runs on the board against the Lady Tigers even when the bats were warming up.

    But when it comes to the rivalry clash between the reigning three-time state champions and the newly-minted No. 1 team in the state, respective sides will take what they can get.

  • Lady Indians come back in style...

    Facing a 6-2 deficit, the Chiefland softball team poured on five runs in the third inning and then eight in the fourth en route to a 16-6 win against Dixie County last Thursday.

    The Lady Indians trailed despite getting a solo home run from Lauren Parker in the opening inning and doubles by Emily Hallman and Macie Thomas over the first pair of frames.
