  • Bronson boys' senior night...

    Bronson boys will host Seven Rivers Christian for Senior Night tonight (Friday) at 7:30. This is the last regular season game for the Eagles as they head into district tournaments next week. After last week's loss to Bell, Bronson Head Coach Aaron Haldeman believed the Eagles had fallen to the fourth district seed, leaving them with a brutal matchup against Hawthorne, which is unbeaten in the district. Bell looked to have the third seed and a date with a more vulnerable Oak Hall team.

  • Indians thrash Tigers, get ready...

    After a painful home loss to Bronson, Chiefland boys were ecstatic to get back to pounding Trenton 61-28 Thursday night for Senior Night. The rebuilding Tigers were again without big man Trevor Pelphrey, leaving do-it-all senior C.J. Bowers to, well, do it all. The Indians keyed on Bowers and held him to six points on the night. Julian Langley stepped up for Trenton with a team-high nine points.

    “I understand Trenton is in a rebuilding process,” said Chiefland Head Coach Mark Lundy.

  • Indians put the fear into Devils

    Chiefland needed a perfect game to beat Williston in basketball, but perfection's not a dog that comes when you call. What they got, in their 58-48 loss to the state-ranked (fourth in TBO poll) Devils, was the prettiest piece of hardwood hustle the Indians have shown all season.

    Against a Red Devil team that has had up and down performances against elite teams this holiday break, the Indians brought their best defense and strongest shot choices of the year, holding Williston close and even sharing a lead until the last three minutes of the game.

  • Lady Indians open second half...

    Chiefland girls opened the second half of their season with a bang, knocking off a hardy Bronson team 50-37. With C.J. Jack back from her preseason knee injury, the Lady Indians had one more scorer and rebounder on the floor. Bronson keeps improving, with much of the team playing better than they have all season, although scoring difficulties persist.

  • WHS football coach resigns

    After five good years leading the Red Devils, Williston football head coach Jamie Baker is calling it quits. In a surprise announcement Tuesday, Baker said he would be leaving the football field for the pasture to begin, or rather, reclaim a career in cattle ranching.

    “I've enjoyed coaching at Williston,” Baker said. “It's as good a position as I could have had, and my decision has nothing to do with the position or the team or the people here. It was just time for a change of direction.”

  • Transportation change could help...

    It's time to put to bed an upsetting rumor, if only temporarily, that middle school sports in Levy County Schools will be cancelled next year as part of the school budget restrictions. Not yet, anyway.

    “No, that's definitely a rumor; it's not true,” said Levy County Superintendent of Schools Bob Hastings.

    “But the fact is, we are evaluating ways to save the district money, and everything is on the table.”
