  • County runners dash to regionals

    Six Chiefland sprinters and hurdlers joined the girls’ 4x800 relay team in qualifying for the regional championships in track and field at the District 1A-5 meet at Oak Hall School in Gainesville last Wednesday.

    Michael Weaver advanced in a pair of events as the Chiefland standout finished second in the boys’ 110 meter hurdles (17.87 seconds) and scored third in the boys’ 300-meter dash (46.58 seconds).

  • Lady Indians declaw Panthers

    The Chiefland softball team needed this one.

    Coming off rare back-to-back losses bookending spring break, the three-time defending state champs were re-engaged and looking to unload some frustration last Thursday against visiting Lecanto.

    CMHS bursted out of the gate with three runs in the opening frame against the Class 6A Panthers, before capturing a 7-2 win behind solid performances in all phases.

    The club improved to 8-3 overall, while LHS fell to 6-6.

  • Chiefland turns in big innings...

    There were times during last Friday’s game at Bronson when the Chiefland baseball club, in action for the first time since March 10, looked like a team that was playing its first game in two weeks.

    Indian pitchers surrendered eight walks and a hit-batter, and the defense’s four errors proved costly, as Bronson exploited those self-inflicted mistakes to help stir its offense, leaving no lead safe in the offensive onslaught.

  • District powerhouses to collide...

    Good on good, that’s the best way to describe Friday’s district matchup in Chiefland between the Lady Indian and Trenton softball teams.

    The Lady Tigers were an integral part of the story of CMHS’ third straight state championship last season.

  • Tight-knit Lady Indians led by...

    The Chiefland High School softball team has reached the stage where its championships could nearly be taken for granted.

  • Smith walk-off double lifts...

    The stakes weren’t as high as they were the last time the teams met, but Chiefland did exact some revenge last Tuesday for its state finals loss to Lafayette (Mayo) in baseball action last Tuesday.

  • Gore seeking high turnout for...

    Adam Gore’s goal to attract more Chiefland High School students to play football has already hit a snag.The Indians’ first-year head football coach found out that one of the program’s set of uniforms only has enough for 37 players.

    Chiefland sophomore Wyatt Hammond got off to a rocky start when he took the mound in the fifth inning Monday against Bronson.

    Hammond hit a pair of batters early in the inning before giving up a two-run single to senior pitcher Donnie Clifton, giving the Eagles a 4-2 advantage.

    But the rangy right-hander slammed the door shut on BMHS for the remainder of the game, helping the Indians collect a 5-4 come-from-behind win in the season opener in Chiefland.

  • Bears bounce Bronson from...

    A two-minute span in the second quarter proved too costly for Bronson to overcome.

    The No. 3-seeded Eagles, fresh off a convincing district quarterfinal win against Chiefland (69-42), fell victim to early turnovers and a second-quarter scoring splurge by Dixie County in last Friday’s District 1A-7 semifinal round, as the Bears advanced on a 71-52 win in Bell.

    The second-seeded Bears, which routed Cedar Key in their quarterfinal tilt, went on to upset top-seeded and fourth-ranked Bell Saturday with a 63-59 overtime victory.
