  • Outsiders outduel locals

    Cedar Keys girls saved Levy County face by finishing second in the Cedar Key Relays in Rosewood on Thursday.

    There were four schools competing in the event, four from Levy and three from outside of the county. It was a “relay” format, meaning two competitors from each team combined for an overall score in each event. Individual results were not available.

    Branford won the girls division, followed by Cedar Key, Bell, Trenton, Bronson, Chiefland and Williston.

  • CHS knocks off rust to defeat St...

    Bo Beauchamp was in midseason form. His team was not.

    After a two-week layoff, Chiefland slopped its way to a 13-5 home win against St. Francis on Thursday. Beauchamp struck out 10 and didn’t allow an earned run in a complete-game victory.

    “We looked like we hadn’t played a game in a while.,” said CHS coach Kyle Parnell. “Fortunately, Bo came out and pitched well.”

  • Bodine keeps on truckin'

    Todd Bodine is the reigning champion of the Camping World Truck Series. In the past six seasons, he has won two championships and never finished lower than fourth in the season standings.

    Though he is coming off a third-place finish at Darlington Raceway on March 12, Bodine faces challenges in defending his 2010 championship. It remains a struggle to secure enough sponsorship for his Germain Racing Toyota.

  • Florida's wily coyotes...

    Twenty-five years ago, many Floridians might have thought of coyotes as animals scratching out a living amid the arid landscapes of the Southwestern United States. After all, it was usually a desert mesa that Wile E. Coyote plummeted from in pursuit of the Road Runner, not the top of a cabbage palm or granddaddy oak.

    But sometime in the late 1980s, biologists started documenting the movements of coyotes to the Southeastern part of the country.

  • Consolation no prize for CHS...

    Midseason progress reports are in for Chiefland's softball team, and only a few are getting an 'A' for effort.

    The Lady Bulldog Invitational sat smack dab in the middle of Chiefland's softball schedule, with 10 games before and after the Friday-Saturday tourney in Bell.

    Even though the Lady Indians (8-4 overall) won two of three games, including the consolation final to finish in third place, coach Ginger Fuller and staff were left scratching their heads.

  • Time runs out on CHS in...

    Chiefland lost 8-5 against Columbia in the semifinals of the Lady Bulldog Invitational in Bell on Saturday. The Lady Indians next play in the consolation final at 4 p.m. 

  • Lady Indians win opener to...

    Chiefland's softball team scored a 6-3 win against Bradford in Friday's opening round of the Lady Bulldogs Invitational in Bell.

    Junior catcher Taylore Fuller crushed her state-best eighth homer to lead the way. Because teams intentionally walk Fuller so often, the University of Florida pledge only has 18 official at-bats. She homers 44 percent of the time when opponents actually pitch to her.
