Today's Sports

  • Upset bid falls short

    Union County arrived Friday in a sparkling limo bus, a band that was about 100 students deep, a crowd that filled the visitor’s side of Wayne Pridgeon Stadium and big, fast players in shiny new uniforms.

    Pretty much what a fan would expect to see from the No. 1, Class 1A team in the state. That’s why Chiefland coach Jim O’Neal could be heard several times in the early going yelling, ‘We’re not even supposed to be on the same field with these guys!’

  • Trenton tops Chiefland

    Chiefland suffered its second loss 3-2 against Trenton on Thursday in three games after opening the season with seven straight wins.

    “It humbles you,” said Chiefland coach Tammy Arrington. “It makes you stop and think that, ‘Yes, we’re talented, but you can’t rely on just talent.’ We had a good little streak there, and hopefully we can clean up our mess starting on Monday.

  • Lady Indians, Lady Braves take...

    It was an overcast afternoon last Monday as the Levy County Cross Country Race got underway in Williston. A few sprinkles of rain fell as the race began.

    Team members from Levy County schools—boys and girls from high schools and middle schools—lined up for the start of the race. Participants were from Bronson, Cedar Key, Chiefland High School and Chiefland Middle School, Williston and Yankeetown. 

    The competitors exploded from the starting line as the gun went off.

  • Braves bag another win

    Chiefland’s Middle School football team took to the field last Tuesday night playing like a squad that had won four consecutive SMAC Championships.

  • Chiefland 's varsity...
  • Chiefland's JV volleyball...

    After losing the opening game at Dixie County, Chiefland’s junior varsity volleyball team roared back to win the final two sets to remain a perfect 3-0 on the season.

    The team is coached by Tevin Bennett, a 2001 Trenton High graduate who played setter for the Lady Tigers.

    “They played really well tonight,” Bennett said. “They learned a brand new rotation yesterday and still did well. We moved Ashley Davies to libero and that's what changed our rotation.”

  • Indians hit wall

    A few dozen Chiefland faithful applauded and cheered the Indians at the base of the bleachers in Wayne Pridgeon Stadium following Friday's 41-14 loss against Hilliard.

    It was loud. Really loud. But before the game, as players ran onto the field, it wasn't. Neither fans nor players seemed fired up for this one, and the end result was a devastating loss against a team the Indians believed they could've beat.

  • Chiefland's 9-10s secure...

    Chiefland’s 9- and 10-year-old football team clinched a spot in the league championship with a 21-14 win against Trenton at Wayne Pridgeon Stadium on Saturday.

    The finals of a league that features teams from the tri-county area will be at 6 p.m. on Oct. 15 in Cross City.

    "It’ll be under the lights, so that’ll be an extra kick for the kids,” said coach Shane Keene.

  • Lady Indians are good, no joke

    The ball sailed over the heads of Taylore Fuller and Shelby Mills as both were still cracking up at something one said between serves. Hailey Gerhard made a nice dig to save it from the back row, then Meagan Morgan passed it to Fuller, who had stopped smiling in time to hammer home a devastating kill.

  • Bronson, Seven Rivers combine...

    Seven Rivers Christian won a war of attrition against a Bronson team it had little knowledge of before Friday’s 52-34 victory. With John Iwaniec, the Warriors (2-0) didn’t need to know much as he accounted for six touchdowns and more than 400 yards on running plays and returns.

    As a courtesy, coaches trade game films on the Saturday before they‘ll play one another. Not every high school coach in the country does it, but most do. However, it doesn’t always go according to script.
