  • Indians run into roadbock

    Playing without its top scorer, Chiefland gave a gallant effort only to fall 75-35 against P.K. Yonge in the semifinals of the District 5-2A tournament in Hawthorne on Friday.

    The Blue Wave went on to win the tournament for the second straight season with a convincing 72-53 win against Hawthorne on Saturday.

    Against Chiefland, P.K. Yonge senior guard Devin Wilson busted the Indians’ zone defense with nine 3-pointers. He finished with a tourney-high 38 points.

  • Williston blisters Chiefland...

    Chiefland softball coach Ginger Fuller was surprisingly upbeat after her team was run-ruled 11-1 by Williston in the season opener.

    Despite the lopsided home loss, Fuller was pleased with how her team performed against the Lady Red Devils, which return most of their starters off last season’s Class 3A state semifinalist squad.

  • Four combine for shutout vs....

    Chiefland’s pitchers appeared to be in midseason form in a 10-0 home win against Bronson in a preseason game on a chilly Tuesday night.

    Four hurlers combined for a two-hit shutout against the Eagles. Brent Slaughter allowed a hit and struck out four while pitching the first two innings. Timmy Reidy fanned three batters while working the third and fourth innings. Clayton Smith and Travis Wain  tag teamed the fifth and final inning by retiring the side in order. None of the four issued any walks.

  • Confidence high for Lady Indians

    Expectations are higher than ever for Chiefland's softball team in 2011. Last season, the Lady Indians posted a 20-4 overall record and a 14-0 mark in 2A District 5 play.

    This season, they will be tested quickly, with games this week against Williston at home on Tuesday and at Santa Fe on Friday. Both opponents reached the regional tourney last season and are part of a two-game, home-and-home series for Chiefland.

  • Seniors, pitching to power...

    A savvy group of seniors and a strong pitching staff are expected to be the strengths of Chiefland's baseball team this season.

    Seniors Brent Slaughter, Jake Reidy and Bo Beauchamp are right-handed pitchers that give the Indians a dangerous stable of arms as it enters the 2011 season, which was set to begin on Tuesday against Bronson at home.
