  • 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.

  • CAAA soccer signups begin Sept....
  • Bronson hopes to play spoiler at...

    After taking on one of the area’s premier programs at John Rutledge Field last Friday, Bronson hits the road with hopes of being homecoming spoilers in Branford as it takes on another District 1A-7 squad.

    While the Buccaneers might not measure up to the team from Cross City, BMHS head coach Curtis Stacy and his Eagles know they have another gritty opponent ahead of them, after seeing Branford hold Chiefland scoreless in regulation and force their game into overtime.

  • Bronson overmatched by Dixie...

    Bronson head football coach Curtis Stacy knew last Friday’s home game against Cross City-Dixie County would provide an honest assessment of how far his young team must improve in order to compete with elite teams in the area, most notably those who’ve dominated the Eagles’ former district.

    With multiple final four appearances in recent years and a regional finals appearance in 2015, the Bears have been second only to two-time state champion Trenton in local 1A football.
