  • 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.

  • Scoring droughts doom Lady...

    Three long scoring droughts to open three quarters led to the Chiefland Lady Indians ending their season on a losing note in the first round of the 2A District 5 tournament at Hawthorne last Tuesday.

    Shooting slumps to start the first, third and fourth quarters were the difference in a 45-25 loss against Hawthorne. 

  • Lady Braves repeat as champs

    Now that the Chiefland Lady Braves have the SMAC trophy in their possession, they don't seem ready to give it up. The Lady Braves won their second consecutive Suwanee Middle School Athletic Conference crown with a convincing 37-9 win against Keystone Heights at Ruth Rains Middle School in Cross City on Friday.

  • CMS girls beat Williston

    In the middle school girls basketball version of the Levy Cup, Chiefland edged Williston 21-20 in a thrilling semifinal game of the SMAC tourney on Wednesday at Ruth Rains Middle School in Cross City.

  • CMS Braves win SMAC

    Like most of their games this season, the outcome was in hand well before the final whistle. The Chiefland Braves blew by Fort White 40-13 in the finals of the Suwanee Middle School Athletic Conference tournament at Ruth Rains Middle School in Cross City on Thursday. 

    It was the first SWAC hoops title for the boys team and the first time both boys and girls teams won district.

  • Braves tower over all opponents

    The boys basketball team at Chiefland Middle School cruised to a 33-17 home win against Bronson last week to complete a perfect regular season. If things go as planned this week, the 15-0 Braves will be playing for the SMAC championship today.

    The program’s first undefeated regular season came with relative ease. The closest margin of victory was a two-point win against Lake Butler. Other than that, the next closest was an 11-point victory against Branford.

  • Sports, community drive Schultz...

    If anyone putting on a sporting or church event needs a volunteer, they seek out the Schultz family.

    Boy scout leaders, cub scout leaders, youth coaches, referees, stat keepers and concession stand workers are just a few of the volunteer titles members of the Schultz’ family have worn around Chiefland.

  • No makeup, no problem

    Halie Hammond insists she isn't a total tomboy. The case against her is solid. She loves sports but rarely sports a dress. She doesn't wear makeup, and the only mud she packs on her face comes off the spinning wheels of a golf cart on a rainy day. That Levy County mud came out of a 10-acre open field, not a golf course.

  • Bronson bags 3rd in own tourney

    Bronson dug in when most 1-9 teams would’ve given in.

    Instead of watching another game slip away in the third quarter, the Eagles flew together to finally flip the script on an opponent en route to a 61-56 win against Bell in the third-place game of the Bronson Holiday Tournament on Thursday.
