  • Chiefland official makes state...

    Norm Weaver has come full circle in his hoops journey.

    Fifty-five years after winning a state title as a point guard at Zephyrhills High School, he officiated the girls’ hoops Class 2A state title game last February in Lakeland.

    The events represent towering bookends for Weaver’s extensive time on and around the court, except the 72-year-old shows no signs of slowing down.

  • Chiefland girls prevail at Cedar...

    The Chiefland girls picked up wins in the 4x800 meter relay and 4x400 events to prevail over Bell, Branford, Bronson, Cedar Key, Seven Rivers Christian (Lecanto) and Trenton in the Cedar Key Relays in Rosewood on March 9.

    Jolie Anderson, Jaycie Anderson, Aubrey Hudson and Lauren Jones lifted the Lady Indians to victory in the 4x800 relay, while the Andersons and Hudson joined Banner Hodge in the 4x400.

  • Late heroics propel Chiefland...

    Last Tuesday’s baseball tilt between Chiefland and Williston was a game of precious few offensive opportunities.

    The Indians entered the final inning of the pitching and defensive duel having scrounged up just one run and two hits, the most important being an RBI double by junior Josh Webber that scored sophomore Kelby Osteen in the fourth for CMHS’ only previous run.

    Chiefland proved once again it was comfortable with late-game heroics, however, as senior Casey Lawson sliced a two-run double down the third-base line to lift the Indians to a 3-2 win.

  • Lady Indians storm past Bronson...

    Despite mustering just one hit and two base runners through five innings against Chiefland ace Kensley Durrance last Tuesday, the Bronson softball team remained in striking distance behind a crafty performance in the circle from junior Emily Sheppard.

    Then the floodgates flew open in the bottom of the sixth, as the Lady Indians poured on eight runs to walk off with a 10-0 victory.

    Senior Samantha Rolfe (three runs) scored Chiefland’s first pair of runs in the third and fifth innings, on RBI singles by fellow seniors Lauren Parker and Takiya London.

  • Lady Indinans handed first...

    After three consecutive state championships, Chiefland softball coach Wayne Weatherford knows his team has a bullseye on its back.

    In a highly-anticipated matchup last Friday that only prefaced more meaningful games likely to come between the local rivals, Trenton found its target, finally getting over the hump against the Lady Indians with stellar defensive play and some small-ball offense.

  • Lady Indians bounce back after...

    The Chiefland Indians softball club was in unfamiliar territory early last week.

    The Lady Indians watched their 24-game winning streak come to an end in Lake Butler against Union County Monday, and had little time to lick their wounds beyond the hour-plus ride home, as a district meeting with Branford awaited CMHS on Tuesday.

    A tired Chiefland squad got off to a sluggish start against the Buccaneers, but proved it had enough in the reserves to go the distance, as the Indians collected six insurance runs in the bottom of the sixth en route to a 10-3 win.

  • Chiefland boys, girls speed past...

    The Chiefland boys and girls track and field teams each defeated four schools last Thursday to win their home meet at Wayne Pridgeon Stadium.

    The Indian boys (155) outscored Trenton (129), Newberry (71), Bronson (51) and Williston (47), while the Lady Indians prevailed with 118 points against Trenton (83), Newberry (73), Bronson (46) and Williston (34).

  • Football springs into action

    The Chiefland Indians football team held its first official spring practice Monday at C. Doyle McCall Field. The Indians, led by first-year CMHS head man Adam Gore, play at Wildwood on May 19 at 7 p.m. for their spring game.

  • 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.
