  • CWGA has strong showing in ‘...

    The CWGA sent five members of our group to play in the third outing of the “Gator” competition, held at the University of Florida Course in Gainesville on Nov. 8.

  • Road turnaround?

    The proof is in the improvement.

    Chiefland may look back on Friday’s 26-22 loss at Baldwin as when its football program finally began its turnaround.

  • Young Eagles soar to title

    In a game where 88 combined points were scored, the story usually would revolve around offense. However, defense is what wins championships as Bronson's 9-10 year old football team showed en route to Saturday's 48-38 win against Hawthorne in the league title game.

    The Eagles finish the season with a 7-1 record and avenged their only loss in the process after falling 14-12 against Hawthorne during the regular season. The Hornets' lone loss before Saturday was a 6-0 defeat at the hands of Newberry.

  • Bronson suffers another big loss

    Timmy King’s blank stare was as cold as the ice bag numbing his right knee. Bronson’s senior lineman was injured during the first quarter of Friday’s 51-20 loss at Bell. It dropped the Eagles to 0-9 on the season.

    King sat mostly motionless during the second half, perhaps realizing his high school football career was over from what appeared to be a severe injury. He’d glance at the field only to watch plays, but his eyes would quickly return to the ground.

  • Cappy's (FINAL) Corner:...

    My days are numbered at the Chiefland Citizen. Monday will be my last at the paper as I’ve accepted a job to become the editor of Gator Country Magazine and GatorCountry.com. It’s what is best for my family and career as I try to grow in the Florida media world after moving here from Arkansas a year ago.

    Chiefland, and Levy County, will always be special to me. It’s a special place with special people with a few, at times, that were a special kind of crazy.

    The Chiefland Women’s Golf Association played a game on Oct. 26, 2011, where prizes were awarded to the Low Gross winner and Low Net winner in each of the three flights.  Prizes are also awarded to players who have chip-ins during their rounds.

  • Dixie County sacks Chiefland...

    After almost 46 minutes of little to cheer about other than Shelby Mills being crowned Homecoming Queen, Chiefland fans were throwing both arms into the air, clapping and yelling wildly and even ringing a cow bell. They finally had something to cheer about after a late Indians touchdown in Friday’s 28-8 loss against Dixie County in Wayne Pridgeon Stadium.

  • District Disappointment

    Chiefland High volleyball players quietly wiped away tears and gathered up their belongings as Union County celebrated winning the Class 1A, District 7 Championship with a 3-1 victory against the Lady Indians in Newberry on Thursday night.

    After rolling through the regular season unbeaten in district play and even avenging its only two nonconference losses by beating Trenton and Williston, top-seeded Chiefland (15-3 overall) seemed poised to take its first district volleyball title.

    Chiefland’s Women’s Golf Association

     

    The Chiefland Women’s Golf Association played the second round of their “Eclectic” Tournament on Oct. 19, 2011.  The lowest score on each hole of both rounds was used, less full handicap, to determine the winners of this two round competition.
