  • Chiefland plans camp out

    Chiefland begins fall practice at home on Monday before heading to Otter Springs Park and Campground for its first practice in full pads on Wednesday.

    The Indians will return home from the “team bonding” experience late Friday.

    “We won't be roasting marshmellows and singing Kumbayah, I can assure you,” said CHS coach Jim O’Neal. “They’ve got some open fields that we’ll be using to practice on.”

  • Team Corbin wins big in Trenton

    Much to the delight of Corbin Wiggins, two of three events were won by Trenton Tigers.

    Much to the delight of him, his family and Todd Bryant, Friday's Knock Cancer Out of the Park was a huge hit, raising more than $6,500 for Wiggins, who recently was diagnosed with four types of cancer.

  • Fate turns on McMurray

    What a difference a year makes.

    A victory in the 2010 Brickyard 400 was quite an accomplishment in itself for Jamie McMurray. Except that he also won the Daytona 500, not to mention the Bank of America 500 at Charlotte.

    Yet, in spite of victories in NASCAR's two most prestigious races, McMurray, 35, failed to make the Chase for the Sprint Cup. Though the Joplin, Mo., native has won six Sprint Cup races in his career, he has never finished a season in the top 10 of the point standings.

  • Football, volleyball tryouts at...

     Tryouts for football and volleyball begin on Monday, Aug. 8, for Bronson High School. The football team is schedule to practice from 8-10 a.m. and from 4-6 p.m. on Monday, the official start of fall practices.

    Additional tryouts will not be held once school starts so make sure that you have a physical and come prepared to work hard. Games begin the first week of school for both varsity teams. For more information contact the school at (352) 486-5261.    

  • McBride: 'Once an Indian,...

    Oscar McBride's met two of his best friends, Kendrick Scott and Matt Fitzgerald, in Chiefland. In fact, most of his fondest memories were growing up here.

    "I'll never forget my time in Chiefland," McBride said. "I just want everybody in Chiefland to know that I love them and I think about them all the time and I really appreciate everything they done for me."

  • Trenton hosts baseball-skills...

    Trenton High is hosting a fundraiser July 29 for Tigers junior Corbin Wiggins, who recently was diagnosed with four types of cancer.

    The fundraiser will feature players from 12 schools from around the region in a baseball-skills competition that will test throwing, running and batting. It begins at 7 p.m., with registration beginning at 6 p.m.

  • Bronson Speedway gets green light

    Bronson Speedway gets a new lease on life Saturday when the track opens for the 2011 racing season after sitting dormant for more than a year.

    Open Wheel Modifieds, Sportsman cars, INEX Legend Cars, Pure Stocks and Hornets will be in action on opening night. These classes will run almost every week at the speedway, and the five divisions will be the core of racing at Bronson. 

  • Coaching coaches

    A coach changed his life and now he's changing coaches' lives.

    Oscar McBride, an All-American tight end at Chiefland and Notre Dame who went on to play for the Arizona Cardinals, remembers the hot, muggy fall day like it was yesterday.

  • Chiefland players experience...

    Five baseball players from Chiefland recently returned from a trip they'll never forget when they played in a tournament in Cooperstown, N.Y., home of the National Baseball Hall of Fame.

    Chieflanders Zach Barker, Randy Fuller, Jake Kennedy, Casey Lawson and Chase Malloy played on the 12-under Team Reebok squad. Other team members were Jarrett Brown and Cody Lacoste of Alachua, Kyle Cronin, Ryan Lauzardo and Sage Kramer of Gainesville, Tyler Buckner of High Springs and Phillip Joyner of Lake Butler.

  • 'Strongman' drives...

    Chiefland defensive coordinator Randy Fuller summed up one of the reasons behind the Indians’ ‘Strongman Competition’ by shouting: “We’re going to find out right now who’s going to quit on us in the fourth quarter!”

    Despite extra hot and humid conditions, no CHS player quit, even as legs began to quiver late in Tuesday’s workout that was anything but typical as coaches incorporated ropes and tires of all sizes into the competition.
