  • 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.

  • Indians, Bears play Thursday in...

    When numbers were drawn out of a hat two years ago to determine district schedules, Chiefland coach Aaron Richardson knew his team would be facing an unforgiving stretch of opponents around this time of the year for a couple of seasons.

    The Indians are coming off back-to-back games against top five opponents, and are now set to take on a Dixie County team Thursday in Cross City that has lingered among the top 1A teams in the state over the last few years.

  • Bronson football unable to dig...

    Putting together a complete game in all three phases is that oft-elusive goal that all good football teams strive for.

    The Bronson football team has shown it’s capable of standing toe to toe with opponents for long stretches, but a successful four quarters has so far remained out of reach.

    At Branford (3-2) last Friday, the Eagles (0-4) were unable to ultimately dig out of a 12-0 hole, but managed to give the Buccaneers a scare on their homecoming night, as BMHS fell 20-12 on the road.

  • Bronson football returns home to...

    Bronson hopes to turn the tables Friday at John Rutledge Field, as the Eagles look to snap their losing streak against an undefeated Lafayette.

  • Chiefland welcomes No. 3 Trenton...

    Chiefland has little time to lick its wounds after suffering its first loss on the season at Newberry last Friday, as the most accomplished team in Class 1A football over the last three seasons, No. 3 Trenton, comes to town.

    “We’ve got two huge ones coming up,” CMHS coach Aaron Richardson said following his team’s 42-0 loss last week. “It’s huge district implications (Friday), so we’ve got to get ready in a hurry, because, no doubt about it, Trenton’s a pretty good football team.”

  • Chiefland suffers first loss of...

    The Chiefland football team had a stern enough challenge on its hands at Newberry last Friday.

    The Indians, already a relatively young team without a lot of experienced depth, were facing what figures to be one of its toughest opponents on the season, particularly on the defensive line, and were short-handed coming in.

    CMHS was strong out of the gate, picking up three first downs on the game’s opening possession, and holding the ball for more than nine minutes in the first quarter.

  • Top volleyball squads in...

    A pair of top volleyball squads meet Thursday for what could be a preview of the District 1A-7 championship match.

    It’ll also be a rematch of last year’s district final.

    Entering this week, Chiefland and Newberry sat at the top of the standings, each with 8-1 district records. The Lady Indians fell to Branford on Monday to drop to 8-2, and 10-6 overall.

  • Setting the tempo

    Lauren Parker’s value to the Chiefland volleyball team came into contrast at a tournament on the Saturday following homecoming.

    Without the senior setter in those three matches, the Indians, who are 10-6 on the season, went 0-3.

    “She’s definitely one of our team leaders,” CMHS coach Debra Weeks said. “When she wasn’t there Saturday, we didn’t know what to do. She tries to rally the team around her. She’s kind of the glue that holds us together.
