  • CHS grad earns conference honors

     Reggie McClendon, a freshman defensive back at MacMurray College and Chiefland High School graduate, was selected to the Upper Midwest Athletic Conference All-Conference team last week.

    McClendon, a criminal justice major, was picked to the second team all-conference for the UMAC, joining 10 other MacMurray players who received the honor.

    “I think it’s a big accomplishment, as a freshman,” McClendon said. “But I look forward to getting first team next year.”

  • Area junior golfer wins Tarpon...

     Alden Mark Davis, a Chiefland High School varsity golfer, won the Greater Tampa Junior Golf Association’s Tarpon Springs event on Dec. 6.

    Davis, also a junior golfer at Chiefland Golf and Country Club, won by two strokes with an 82 in the boys 13-15 Division.

    “Yeah, it was great,” Davis said.

    Playing at Wentworth Country Club, the CHS sophomore battled not only the course, but the weather, too. Rain and wind made golf difficult.

    “The ground was mud,” he said. “It made shooting the ball much harder.”

  • Baltimore LB Johnson eyes tough...

    Jarret Johnson has had a busy last couple of weeks.

    Johnson, a Chiefland High School graduate and Baltimore Ravens linebacker, has played on Monday Night Football twice, a 16-0 Ravens win against Cleveland on Nov. 16 and a 27-14 loss against Green Bay on Dec. 7.

    Since their Week 7 bye, the Ravens (7-6) have gone 4-3, with wins against Denver (30-7), Cleveland, Pittsburgh (20-17, OT) and, most recently, Detroit (48-3). In that span Johnson has totaled  24 tackles, 17 solo, and two sacks.

  • Indian Express

    Chiefland’s boys basketball team found it’s groove last Friday night, rolling to an easy 75-44 victory against visiting Trenton.

    The offensive showcase started early in the game, as the Indians built an early 9-3 lead in the opening minutes of the first quarter, a Trenton 3-pointer by Cedric Stokes closed the gap to 9-6, but then the Indians started warming up.

    Early foul trouble inside forced Chiefland to go small with their lineup, coach Mike Beck said. The move paid off.

  • Local dragbike maker victorious

     Standing among rows of some of the fastest performance motorcycles in the U.S., Chris Jones flashed an easy-going smile and pointed to a wall covered in awards.

  • Tigers roll Lady Indians

    Led by two scorers in double digits, Trenton’s girls basketball team topped Chiefland last Friday, 51-29.

    But Indians coach Chris Wilson saw plenty to praise, after a season-opening rout against Williston on Nov. 17.

    “I was extremely proud of them,” Wilson said of his team. “We lost our first effort (against Williston) 48-9, and that’s a really good team. And to come back and play better against (Trenton), they’re a really good, well-coached team. I’m pleased.”

  • Bronson boys hold on for hoops...

     Bronson High School’s boys basketball team pulled away late to defeat the Branford Buccaneers 36-29 last Monday.

    But according to coach Aaron Haldeman, the game shouldn’t have been even that close.

    Trying to kill off time late in the fourth quarter, the Eagles missed several potential shots to pull even further ahead. But each miss gave the Buccaneers another chance to close the gap, leaving Haldeman frustrated despite the victory.

  • Bucs topple Eagles’...

     Despite battling back to tie the game at halftime, Bronson High School’s girls varsity basketball team couldn’t overcome Branford’s third quarter scoring surge, falling 36-19 to the Buccaneers last Monday.

    The loss was an early stumbling block for the young Eagles, coach Greg Hamilton said. Starting a group of young players — several of whom did not play for the team last season — presents several challenges. It’s still early, but Hamilton said his squad has plenty of room to grow.
