  • 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.

  • 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.

  • District champ Dixie County...

    CROSS CITY — Almost from the start, the cards were stacked against Chiefland High School’s football team last Friday night.

    The Indians traveled to Dixie County — the champions of District 1A—5 this season — reeling from both injuries and the departure of several key players.

    And it showed. The Bears made easy work of the Indians in a 42-0 blowout, padding Dixie County’s district crown and virtually eliminating Chiefland’s postseason hopes.

  • Chiefland Middle celebrates...

     Chiefland Middle School celebrated a pair of milestones last week, winning Suwannee Middle School Athletic Conference titles in both volleyball and football.

    In football, The Braves won their second consecutive SMSAC title, defeating Fort White, 38-0.

    The girls volleyball team defeated Bradford County 25-21, 25-21 in their title match.

    Football coach Anthony Phillips said an overall team effort contributed to the Braves’ 14-game winning streak, spanning two seasons.

  • Beck aims high for Chiefland...

    The Chiefland High basketball team has been undisciplined in the past, but those days are over,  coach Mike Beck told the Chiefland Rotary Club on Oct. 21.

    Beck, who is in his first season, briefed the Rotarians on what to expect this season. Beck, who retired from coaching in 2005 to move to Indiana and raise horses, returned to the Chiefland area a year ago. He previously coached in Lecanto.

    “The basketball team this year is not what it has been,” Beck said.
