  • Chiefland JV ends season on high...

    Chiefland’s junior varsity football team enjoyed a fitting send off to its season last Tuesday, as it rolled to a 54-22 romp in its finale against Jasper-Hamilton County at C. Doyle McCall Field at Wayne Pridgeon Stadium.

    The convincing win was spearheaded by a five-touchdown performance from freshman quarterback and return specialist Ty Corbin.

    “They came to practice everyday to try to get better, and they worked hard,” said Lee Bell, the head JV coach. “They wanted to be good.”

  • Silver Linings

    After his team’s third district loss at Dixie County in Cross City last Thursday, Chiefland head football coach Aaron Richardson told his team there were no excuses, but that he understood the difficult challenges it faced over the last three weeks.

    The Indian offense mostly struggled out of the gate, while the Bears hit pay dirt on six of their first seven possessions on the way to a 41-15 win at Bruce Boyette Stadium.

  • Chiefland heads to Hawthorne for...

    With its most unrelenting stretch of district opponents in the rearview mirror, the Chiefland football travels to Hawthorne Thursday for its longest road trip of the season.

    After watching their playoff hopes officially dissolve after suffering district losses last week, both teams enter the game looking to kick off the final third of the season on a better note.

  • Bronson football snaps 15-game...

    The emotional toll on the Bronson football team over the last year was written all over the faces of its players on Monday as they huddled around for their postgame talk following a dramatic overtime win at Wildwood.

  • District volleyball tournament...

    The Chiefland volleyball team will look to capture back-to-back district titles at next week’s District 1A-7 tournament at Newberry High School.

    The No. 2-seeded Indians (12-9 overall), led by Debra Weeks, are coming off a district championship and final four appearance from 2015, and open tournament play against No. 7 seed Dixie County (0-12 in 1A-7) on Monday, Oct. 17, at 7:30 p.m.

    A win Monday for the Lady Indians earns them a match with the winner between Bronson (4-8 in 1A-7) and Branford (8-4 in 1A-7) on Tuesday at 5 p.m.

  • Coaches take wait-and-see...

    As it stands, Chiefland football coach Aaron Richardson is a fan of the new playoff format that was approved by the Florida High School Athletic Association Board last week, but its ultimate benefit to Chiefland remains to be seen, he says.

  • Playoff format changes coming to...

    The Florida High School Athletics Association has approved a proposal to change the state’s playoff structure for football, and it could have significant implications for area schools.

    The new format gets rid of districts for classifications 1A through 4A, leaving teams to completely make their own schedules and earn playoff berths based on a points system. There will be four regions per classification, and four playoff teams per region, making for 16 total playoff teams in the lower classifications, the same number as under the current system.

  • Chiefland volleyball surrenders...

    The Chiefland volleyball team didn’t get the result it was looking for when it took on Newberry at home last Thursday, but what the Lady Indians might have learned against their toughest competition in the district could prove more valuable in the long run.

    It was another fierce battle between two squads that met in the district championship last season and are back at the top of the district standings this year.

  • Chiefland football suffers...

    Chiefland’s offensive woes continued last Friday, mustering just 54 yards and three first downs against No. 3 Trenton, while senior Montrez Jackson ran for 187 yards and three touchdowns to help lift the Tigers to a 42-0 win in Chiefland.

    It marked the third straight game the Indians failed to score during regulation.

    “(Trenton’s) really good on defense, and we’re not very good on offense right now,” CMHS coach Aaron Richardson said.

  • Bronson football game at...

    A pair of teams hungry for victory will look for an enormous lift to their respective programs when they meet for a rare Monday game in Wildwood due to Hurricane Matthew.

    A long losing streak is guaranteed to come to an end, as Wildwood, which suspended varsity play for all of last season due to a lack of participation, has lost 18 straight, while the Eagles go in having dropped 15 straight.
