  • Chiefland welcomes No. 3 Trenton...

    Chiefland has little time to lick its wounds after suffering its first loss on the season at Newberry last Friday, as the most accomplished team in Class 1A football over the last three seasons, No. 3 Trenton, comes to town.

    “We’ve got two huge ones coming up,” CMHS coach Aaron Richardson said following his team’s 42-0 loss last week. “It’s huge district implications (Friday), so we’ve got to get ready in a hurry, because, no doubt about it, Trenton’s a pretty good football team.”

  • Lady Indians capture county...

    The Chiefland Middle High School volleyball team seems to pull out its best performances when its backs are against the wall.

    Facing an elimination set after falling behind a 2-1 against Williston last Thursday, the Indians pieced together what might have been their best two-game stretch of the year, winning 25-10 and 15-3 in straight sets 3-2 victory.

  • Chiefland suffers first loss of...

    The Chiefland football team had a stern enough challenge on its hands at Newberry last Friday.

    The Indians, already a relatively young team without a lot of experienced depth, were facing what figures to be one of its toughest opponents on the season, particularly on the defensive line, and were short-handed coming in.

    CMHS was strong out of the gate, picking up three first downs on the game’s opening possession, and holding the ball for more than nine minutes in the first quarter.

  • Setting the tempo

    Lauren Parker’s value to the Chiefland volleyball team came into contrast at a tournament on the Saturday following homecoming.

    Without the senior setter in those three matches, the Indians, who are 10-6 on the season, went 0-3.

    “She’s definitely one of our team leaders,” CMHS coach Debra Weeks said. “When she wasn’t there Saturday, we didn’t know what to do. She tries to rally the team around her. She’s kind of the glue that holds us together.

  • Bronson football returns home to...

    Bronson hopes to turn the tables Friday at John Rutledge Field, as the Eagles look to snap their losing streak against an undefeated Lafayette.

  • Bronson football unable to dig...

    Putting together a complete game in all three phases is that oft-elusive goal that all good football teams strive for.

    The Bronson football team has shown it’s capable of standing toe to toe with opponents for long stretches, but a successful four quarters has so far remained out of reach.

    At Branford (3-2) last Friday, the Eagles (0-4) were unable to ultimately dig out of a 12-0 hole, but managed to give the Buccaneers a scare on their homecoming night, as BMHS fell 20-12 on the road.

  • Chiefland escapes with overtime...

    The Chiefland Indians and Branford Bucs locked helmets in a phone booth for a defensive tussle that left the score knotted at 0-0 at the end of regulation.

    Luckily, the Indians (2-0, 1-0) proved to have a little more left in their tank, as senior Lonnie Hinote ran right for a 10-yard, walk-off touchdown in the first overtime to lift CMHS to a 6-0 homecoming victory and a 2-0 mark.

    Chiefland is 1-0 in District 1A-7, while Branford (2-2 overall) starts at 0-1 in the district.

  • Indians solve stingy Branford...

    As the overtime period started between Chiefland and Branford, it looked like we’d get more of what we saw during regulation, as the Branford offense was immediately hit with a false start on its first play.

    The overtime format allows teams to trade possessions with a fresh set of downs, starting at the opponent's’ 10-yard-line.

  • Getting up to speed

    The Chiefland girls’ basketball team is equipped with some favorable pieces this season, with its impressive athleticism and height, as well as the return of a majority of its scoring from a season ago.

    But that firepower might take a minute to flourish, as the Lady Indians (0-3), many of whom are coming off volleyball, find their legs enough to push their up-tempo, attacking style of basketball for four quarters.
