  • Indians surge late

    It took a bit longer than usual, but the No.2-seeded Chiefland High School found its rhythm in the fifth inning.

    Home runs from Clenton Wasson and Bo Beauchamp lifted the Indians past No. 7 Bronson, 7-2, in the opening game of the District 2A-5 Tournament on Monday.

    For the first few innings of the game, held at Trenton High School on an immaculate field,  sharp pitching from the Eagles’ Seth Steinbacher kept the Indians quiet. Chiefland coach Kyle Parnell figured that was to be expected.

  • Chiefland QB Club confident in...

    Jim O'Neal, the new football coach at Chiefland High School, is already creating an impression on players and fans with his attitude and training style.

    "He's a no-nonsense kind of person, "CHS Quarterback Club President Abe Blitch, told the Chiefland Rotary Club at its April 21 meeting. "You want tough-in-your-gut football, well it's here in Chiefland."

  • Bronson’s Barber...

    Barber earned varsity letters in baseball and football in all four years of high school, as well as three letters in basketball.

  • Yonge outlasts CHS for 2A-5 title

    GAINESVILLE—It was a shame someone had to lose.

    P.K. Young defeated Chiefland, 5-4, last Thursday night in the District 2A-5 Championship game. It was a matchup that gave fans everything they wanted: clutch hits, strong pitching performances, controversial calls and nail-biting finish.

    Well, it gave fans almost everything they wanted. The Indians left the field disappointed, despite surging back from a 5-2 early deficit.

  • Local bass tournament raises...

    The third annual Suwannee River Open Bass Tournament benefiting the North Florida Chapter of The Leukemia and Lymphoma Society was held April 3. The event was held at Clay Landing in Chiefland from safelight until 3:30 p.m.

    A total of seven of the 15 boats were able to bring five fish limits to the scale.

    The husband and wife team of Davey and Kerrie Parrish were able to best the rest of the field of accomplished anglers. Their five fish limit weighed 11.75 pounds and earned them $337.50 for the day and  very nice trophies.

  • Chiefland wins softball...

    For Chiefland High School’s varsity softball team, there are four components to the game that, when executed, lead to winning.

    Good pitching, aggressive baserunning, solid defense and timely hits. In fact, Indians coach Ginger Fuller put up a poster with these words before the season in a place where everyone on the team can see it.

    And Monday night, these components paid off as No. 1-seeded Chiefland topped No. 4 Bell 9-6 in their District 2A-5 Softball Tournament first round game.

  • District baseball title up for...

     On the surface, next week’s District 2A-5 baseball tournament appears to be a battle between haves and have-nots.

    Chiefland High School is fortunate enough to be in the former, powering its way to be a district contender this year. Bronson High has struggled, especially during the early portion of the season. According to the standings, the Eagles are among the latter.

    But with further study, an old saying begins to ring true.

    Anything is possible.

  • Area teams eye District 2A-5...

    Chiefland High School’s varsity softball team is an easy pick to win next week’s District 2A-5 Tournament.

    The Indians are 14-0 in the district (16-2 overall), as of Monday. They have shut out their opponents nine times. They have beat their opponents by double digits 11 times.

    Simply put, they have been dominant.

  • Raiders hammer Sabercats, team...

    The Levy County Raiders semi-professional football team traveled to Belleview last Saturday night and thumped the Sabercats 25-7 in the Central Florida Football League’s Game of the Week. 

    With their win (the seventh of the season), the Raiders are ranked No. 10 in the country by semiprobcs.com, as of Monday. Boasting the league’s No. 1 offense and defense, they could easily rise in the polls when they come out today.

  • Time for a break

    Chiefland High School’s varsity softball team entered spring break in style last Thursday evening, shutting down Newberry High 8-0.

    Pitcher Christen Trail picked up the win for the Indians, tossing a complete game shutout and striking out five.

    Chiefland’s aggressive baserunning paid off again for the most part, with the Indians picking apart the Panthers’ defense when they weren’t covering their bases. Chiefland batters would reach first, whether by fielder’s choice, walk or single, and quickly work their way to third and beyond.
