  • Lady Indians clinch fourth...

    The top-seeded Chiefland softball team was a heavy favorite going into its District 1A-7 semifinal game against fourth-seeded Branford last Tuesday.

    A lot was on the line, however, including a program-best fourth straight state playoff berth, to keep the Lady Indians on their toes for any upset bid the Lady Buccaneers might’ve hoped for.

  • Baseball districts in Branford

    The Chiefland baseball team opens the District 1A-7 tournament Monday, May 1, at 4 p.m. against Dixie County in Branford.

    The winner plays Tuesday against Trenton.

    The Bears and the defending champion Indians each finished 4-6 in district play and split their pair of regular season meetings, as CMHS avenged a 10-9 road loss in Cross City with a dominant 11-2 win at home over Dixie County on April 11.

  • 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).

  • Don't call me if a neighbor...

    Please don’t call me if your neighbor shoots your dog or poisons your cats. Call law enforcement and if they can’t do anything about it, then I can’t either. For one thing, I am not getting in the middle of a dispute between neighbors. Second, if I interview one neighbor, then I have to interview the other, which never ends well. Third, we don’t have an investigative reporter or other resources.

  • Chiefland hosts softball...

    The District 1A-7 softball tournament, hosted at Chiefland Middle High School, kicks off Monday April 24 and finishes with its championship game on Friday April 28 in Chiefland.

    The Lady Indians are coming off back-to-back district championships and three-straight Class 1A state titles.

    In 2014, CMHS lost in the district finals to Dixie County, before knocking off the Bears 3-2 in the regional playoffs, setting the stage for the team’s first state championship.

  • Lady Indians come back in style...

    Facing a 6-2 deficit, the Chiefland softball team poured on five runs in the third inning and then eight in the fourth en route to a 16-6 win against Dixie County last Thursday.

    The Lady Indians trailed despite getting a solo home run from Lauren Parker in the opening inning and doubles by Emily Hallman and Macie Thomas over the first pair of frames.

  • Chiefland baseball bats erupt...

    An inning that included a little bit of everything from the Chiefland offense helped catapult the Indians past Dixie County for an 11-2 win in district play last Tuesday in Chiefland.

    Chiefland, which collected a 7-4 win at Newberry Monday, finished 1A-7 play at 4-6 and sat at 8-6 overall heading into its game at Alachua-Santa Fe on Tuesday.

    The Bears were 4-5 in district action (11-8 overall) before their final district tilt Tuesday versus Bell.

  • Lady Indians prevail in district...

    The Chiefland softball team had some regrets coming out of its second meeting with Trenton last Friday.

    The Lady Indians failed to score nine of their base runners in the final four frames, as they again struggled to put runs on the board against the Lady Tigers even when the bats were warming up.

    But when it comes to the rivalry clash between the reigning three-time state champions and the newly-minted No. 1 team in the state, respective sides will take what they can get.

  • Chiefland baseball surrenders...

    This has been Trenton’s year so far in baseball, as it boasts a district-best 8-0 mark and 14-1 record on the season.

    But Chiefland, the reigning 1A-7 champions and returning state finalists, proved last Friday they’re aren’t prepared to relinquish the throne without a fight.

    After falling behind 2-0 to the Indians and trailing through four innings, the Tigers mounted a successful comeback to win 5-2 last Friday in the first meeting between the clubs this season.
