  • Indians’ softball...

    Chiefland High School’s varsity softball team had plenty of highs and lows in its first week of the regular season.

    The highs? The Indians’ offense throttled both Bell and Hawthorne last week in double-digit blowouts.

    The lows? Williston returned the favor last Friday night, piling on runs early in an 8-2 loss for Chiefland, it’s first defeat of the season.

  • Over and out

    Another meeting, another beating.

    Bell outlasted Chiefland yet again last Monday night, surging in the fourth quarter to a 55-45 victory in the first round of the District 2A-5 boys basketball tournament.

    They won despite Chiefland’s Eugene Carter dropping 34 points, including all 12 of the Indians’ points in the first quarter.

    It was the third time this season the Bulldogs toppled the Indians. The past two meetings went into overtime, with Bell finding a way to come out on top. This time, however, the loss ousted Chiefland from the tournament.

  • Powers lifts Bronson into tourney

     For Bronson’s boys basketball team, it wasn’t how they finished the 2A-5 District Tournament, it’s how they started.

    Raymie Powers surged in the fourth quarter last Saturday to lead the Eagles past Trenton, 39-35, in the tournament’s play-in game.

    Powers scored six of his eight points and nabbed three of his four assists in the fourth, virtually willing his team past its 32-25 deficit against the Tigers.

    Bronson outscored Trenton 17-3 in the final quarter of the game.

  • Award Show

    Chiefland High School held its Football and Cheerleading Banquet on Monday night, honoring the players and cheerleaders for their efforts during the 2009 season.

    About 200 parents, teachers, school board officials, players and coaches were in Chiefland Elementary School’s cafeteria for the banquet, with members of First Baptist Church volunteering their time serving steak dinners to guests.

    In his speech, Indians coach Ajay Ulmer emphasized that he and his coaches emphasize that the Indians’ football program wasn’t about just one person.

  • Eagles’ senior night...

    Chiefland High School’s varsity basketball team held off a first-half scare to overtake Bronson 35-32 last Friday night.

    The low-scoring loss spoiled the Eagles’ Senior Night. However, early on it looked as if Bronson was going to steal the game from under the Indians.

    Chiefland’s bus didn’t show up, coach Mike Beck said, forcing his team to rush during warmups.

    “We didn’t have a bus, we’re standing around,” Beck said. “The kids just convinced themselves that they did not want to go.”

  • P.K. Yonge ousts Bronson girls...

    P.K. Yonge ousted Bronson’s girls basketball team 78-13 on Monday night in the first round of the District 2A-5 Tournament in Trenton.

    The Blue Wave are a perennial state title contender, and the Eagles, under coach Greg Hamilton, are rebuilding the school’s program. So, despite the loss, Hamilton said there’s plenty to be excited about in the future.

    “I’m Very pleased,” Hamilton said. “overall our team works hard. ... The girls are excited about basketball again, and that’s important.”

  • Look away, Dixie Land

    It looks like Chiefland’s varsity girls basketball team is hitting its stride just in time.

    The Lady Indians throttled visiting Dixie County 52-37 last Friday night, with three Chiefland scorers hitting double digits.

    The game is a confidence builder as they entered a tough final week of the season, followed by the District 2A-5 tournament next week at Trenton.

    But for now, Chiefland coach Chris Wilson is glad his team’s efforts are starting to pay off.

  • Bears’ boys roll...

    Chiefland High School’s boys basketball team stormed to a 18-5 first quarter lead last Friday night against Dixie County.

    But the Bears fought back, limiting the Indians’ Eugene Carter to only nine points, and outscoring Chiefland 48-29 during the final three quarters, for a 53-47 win.

    The loss spoiled Chiefland’s Senior Night. The Indians honored two seniors — Desmonds Jackson and Tony Bennett — before the game Friday.

  • Early Oak Hall run sinks Bronson

     Oak Hall used a 29-12 first-half run to overtake Bronson, 45-28, last Thursday night.

    J.D. Tomlinson led Oak Hall with 19 points, including four 3-pointers in the first three quarters. 

    Enrique Wiseman led Bronson with 14.

    It was a game in which the home Eagles (Oak Hall is also the Eagles) struggled to find the basket. 

    Oak Hall stormed out of the gate with a 13-4 run and never looked back.

    Bronson’s defense was also struggling, coach Aaron Haldeman said.
