  • Bronson boys run past Chiefland...

    The meeting between the Bronson and Chiefland boys’ hoops squads last Tuesday in Bronson unfolded in opposite fashion as we’re recently used to seeing from the teams.

    While the Eagles have proved apt at building early leads, only to see them threatened down the stretch by excessive turnovers, the Indians have more often started slow before finding their offensive spark in the fourth quarter.

  • Lady Indians handle Bronson in...

    Chiefland head coach Brian Gore was unhappy with the look of his team in Bronson last Tuesday, calling it one his squad’s worst performances.

    But he didn’t question his team’s effort, which helped pull the Lady Indians from an early deficit to issue a 46-34 win in the BMHS gym.

    “We played bad, but I was impressed with the fact that when we weren’t playing a good game, we still came back and fought and did enough to win,” Gore said.

  • Chiefland girls survive late...

    When senior Aleaha Rhoomes stole the ball in the backcourt for a breakaway layup in the fourth quarter, given her Chiefland squad a 15-point lead last Tuesday against Cedar Key with just three minutes remaining, CKS coach David Tomlin instructed his squad to just keep playing, regardless of the score.

  • Lady Indians split pair of...

    The Chiefland girls faced the top and bottom of the district on Friday and Monday, and the results indicated as much.

    At Bell on Friday, the Lady Indians toppled the Bulldogs 54-11 in District 1A-7 action.

    CMHS had five players with at least seven points, including junior Naja Martin (14 points) and sophomore Courtney Hayes (11 points), who were each in double figures for the Indians. Senior Aleaha Rhoomes and freshman Sierra Norris boasted eight points apiece, while sophomore Colby Reed chipped in seven points.

  • Chiefland boys come back to...

    In a game that saw both teams hold a lead by at least seven points, it fittiingly came down to a battle of endurance.

    After trailing 16-9 early in the second quarter, the Chiefland offense came alive behind sophomore Payne Parnell and senior Jamarlon Bowers, lifting the Indians to a 20-point second quarter.

    The matchup started to swing back in Cedar Key’s favor in the third, as the Sharks chomped away at the deficit to make it a three-point margin.

  • Chiefland nabs new head football...

    The situation had to be perfect for Adam Gore to throw his hat back in the ring for a head coaching job.

    When the position at his alma mater, Chiefland High School, opened up in December, it was an aligning-of-the-stars moment for the 38-year-old.

    On Tuesday, CMHS principal Matt McClelland introduced Gore, a former head coach at Bell High School, and current social studies teacher at CMHS, as the new varsity football coach for the Indians.

  • Hamilton caps sweep of Eagle...

    The final game of the Eagle Classic Basketball Tournament in Bronson re-confirmed who had the best tournament of the six participating teams.

    Hamilton County from Jasper won its third game in a row with ease, defeating Bronson 70-40 Friday on its way to collecting the Eagle Classic trophy.

    The Trojans (9-3) showed why they were Class 1A state semifinalists in 2016 – and a state finalist in 2014 – as they physically dominated inside for a decisive edge in offensive rebounds and pulled away with 30 points in the second quarter.

  • Early deficit dooms Eagles

    The Bronson boys’ basketball team played Taylor County even for 3 ½ quarters in the teams’ opener in the Eagle Classic Tournament in the BMHS gym last Wednesday.

    The damage dealt to the Eagles in the first four minutes proved enough, however, in a 59-47 loss to the Class 5A Bulldogs from Perry.

    Taylor County rushed to a 17-3 lead midway through the opening quarter behind several layups that were set up by back-court steals.

  • Shorthanded Indians suffer...

    The Chiefland boys’ basketball team ended the Eagle Classic Tournament in Bronson on a pair of lopsided losses last Thursday and Friday.

    The Indians fell 65-27 to Jasper-Hamilton County on Thursday. The Trojans, who made the Class 1A state final four last season, and the state finals in 2014, went 3-0 in the tourney to earn the Eagle Classic trophy.

  • Fourth-quarter fireworks

    With three starters sitting out over team rules violations, last week’s Eagle Classic Basketball Tournament in Bronson was a good opportunity for the Chiefland boys’ basketball team to test its depth with extended playing time for its bench and a couple of junior varsity call-ups.

    For most of the tournament opener against Umatilla last Wednesday, the Indians suffered on the scoreboard, as the Bulldogs carried a 22-point advantage into the fourth quarter, holding Chiefland to just 18 points for the first three quarters.
