  • Indians on a roll

    It’s still early, but it looks like Chiefland High School has the softball team to beat in District 2A-5.

    Just don’t tell Indians coach Ginger Fuller.

    Sure, she’s proud of her team. She’s thrilled that as of last Friday they’re 10-1 overall and undefeated in the district.

    The Indians proved their case again last Thursday against Bell, needing only three innings to stomp the Bulldogs, 14-0.

    So easy wins should keep her team on top, right?

  • Welcome back, coach

     To build for its football team’s future, Chiefland High School turned to its past.

    Jim O’Neal was selected as the Indians’ football coach last Thursday, the same coach that led Chiefland to a 2A state championship in 1997.

    “It feels great to be coming back home and working with the community once again,” O’Neal said by phone last Friday.

  • Softball: Indians’...

    Whatever changes Chiefland High School’s varsity softball team are making, they’re working.

    The Indians’ 10-2 win against Dixie County proved it last Friday night. Amber Richardson dominated on the mound for Chiefland, giving up only one hit and striking out six in her complete game and improving her record to 3-0.

    The rivalry began with both teams at 6-1 this season. Chiefland’s offense made quick work of the Bears, cementing the team’s place as one of District 2A-5’s elite.

  • Baseball: Wasson, Indians batter...

    Big defensive stops, strong pitching performances and a pesky offense were enough for Chiefland High School’s varsity baseball team to put away St. Francis 11-3 last Friday night.

    Clenton Wasson battered the Wolves, finishing 4-for-5 at the plate with a double, triple and RBI.

    The centerfielder also threw out a St. Francis runner at home to stop a potential rally. Chiefland coach Kyle Parnell considered it the play of the game.

  • Ups and Downs

    It was an up and down week for both Chiefland’s and Bronson’s varsity baseball teams.

    The Indians got off to a hot start last Tuesday, thumping visiting Dixie County 13-3 in six innings.

    Starter Jacob Reidy had a good start to the season, striking out the side in the first and picking up the win for Chiefland.

    The Indians capitalized on six Bears errors in the game.

    But Chiefland had some mistakes of their own last weekend, picking up its first two losses of the season to Bradford and Williston at the Levy County Tournament.

    Chiefland High School’s varsity softball team had plenty of highs and lows in its first week of the regular season.

    The highs? The Indians’ offense throttled both Bell and Hawthorne last week in double-digit blowouts.

    The lows? Williston returned the favor last Friday night, piling on runs early in an 8-2 loss for Chiefland, it’s first defeat of the season.

  • Over and out

    Another meeting, another beating.

    Bell outlasted Chiefland yet again last Monday night, surging in the fourth quarter to a 55-45 victory in the first round of the District 2A-5 boys basketball tournament.

    They won despite Chiefland’s Eugene Carter dropping 34 points, including all 12 of the Indians’ points in the first quarter.

    It was the third time this season the Bulldogs toppled the Indians. The past two meetings went into overtime, with Bell finding a way to come out on top. This time, however, the loss ousted Chiefland from the tournament.

  • Powers lifts Bronson into tourney

     For Bronson’s boys basketball team, it wasn’t how they finished the 2A-5 District Tournament, it’s how they started.

    Raymie Powers surged in the fourth quarter last Saturday to lead the Eagles past Trenton, 39-35, in the tournament’s play-in game.

    Powers scored six of his eight points and nabbed three of his four assists in the fourth, virtually willing his team past its 32-25 deficit against the Tigers.

    Bronson outscored Trenton 17-3 in the final quarter of the game.

  • Award Show

    Chiefland High School held its Football and Cheerleading Banquet on Monday night, honoring the players and cheerleaders for their efforts during the 2009 season.

    About 200 parents, teachers, school board officials, players and coaches were in Chiefland Elementary School’s cafeteria for the banquet, with members of First Baptist Church volunteering their time serving steak dinners to guests.

    In his speech, Indians coach Ajay Ulmer emphasized that he and his coaches emphasize that the Indians’ football program wasn’t about just one person.
