  • Bronson falls to Bell on Senior...

            Unable to contain Bell’s strong running game, the Bronson High School varsity football team suffered another loss, dropping it to 1-8 on the season and 0-4 in district play.

    Though the Eagles opened the game with a touchdown, late in the first quarter Bell fired back with a scoring drive and continued to drag the Eagles to a 51-18 loss on senior night. 

  • Indians outlasted in 54-42 loss...

    Chiefland dropped an emotional Homecoming game 54-42 Friday night, falling at home to district rival Baldwin. While putting up their second-most points of any game the season, the Indians gave up a season high in points. Chiefland, 5-4 overall, finishes the 2012 season with an 0-4 district record. Chiefland's final game is the Senior night home finale against undefeated Trenton on Nov. 9.

  • CHS volleyball falls in Districts

    The Newberry varsity volleyball team showed the difference a month in between games, and a few unstoppable outside hitters, can make on the court.
    The Panthers beat Chiefland 3-0 (25-12),(25-16), (25-17) on Oct. 23, advancing to the district championship game and clinching a spot in the regional tournament. The Panthers went on to beat Union County in the tournament finals.

  • A tough one to take

    This one wasn’t fun.
    The running game, which had worked so well for so many games, couldn’t get anything going.
    The defense, which seemed to shut down nearly every opponent, couldn’t seem to get off the field.
    And Chiefland’s rivals from the other side of the Suwannee once again walked off the field celebrating.
    The Union County loss was about as solid a loss as any. The Newberry loss was tough, but understandable. The Dixie County loss was simply brutal.

    The Bronson Eagles pushed through Hawthorne’s defense, leading 22 to 8 at half time, though time and the Hornets’ tough running game wore down the Eagles. Hawthorne prevailed with a 32 to 22 win over the Eagles.
    “The team’s effort was exceptionally good, but Montrez Jackson stood out with over 100 rushing yards at half time”, head coach Cameron Porch said about his team’s effort.

  • Bears beat up Indians 34-7

       Giving up 27 unanswered points, the Chiefland High School varsity football team fell 34-7 at Dixie County Friday night. 

    Chiefland (5-3, 0-3 in district) suffered its most lopsided defeat of the season in the loss.

  • Braves win SWAC title

    The Chiefland Middle School volleyball team won its second-consecutive SWAC championship with a 2-0 win over Lake Butler. The Braves went undefeated on the season and were never foreced into a third set.

  • Bronson looks to turn season...

    Bronson outplayed Hilliard in the fourth quarter of the teams’ game on Oct. 19, outscoring the Flashes 8-6 and making two trips inside the red zone.
    The first three quarters didn’t go as well.
    Hilliard (6-2) ran over Bronson (1-6), literally and figuratively in a 54-8, mercy-rule shortened game. The Flashes scored on every one of their possessions in the first half, picking up over 400 yards of offense in the process.

  • A new kind of rival

    There are many different types of games.
    Subsequently, there are many different ways to win games.
    Chiefland showed it knew another way to win with a victory in the first half of its back-to-back match-ups with its archrivals. Heading into Friday’s game at Dixie County, the Indians are going to be tested in another, more challenging way.
    The Indians have won in “upsets” (Lecanto), evenly-matched teams (Hilliard), teams they should beat (Crescent City and P.K. Yonge). Last week’s game against Williston provided another twist.

  • You Never Leave Heaven

    After 39 years at Chiefland High School, the man everybody in town calls Coach still carried his paddle to work. Like his paddle, Cecil Doyle McCall was strong, firm and surprisingly quick.
    “No one could paddle like Coach McCall,” said Rob Alexander, a Chiefland banker and one of his former students.
    Paddling served as a microcosm of Coach McCall’s outlook toward discipline and life in general. He had a straightforward, aggressive approach as a principal, a coach, a teacher, a friend and as a man.
