  • CHS softball gets by Bronson

    Taylore Fuller crushed her 15th homer to lead Chiefland to an 11-1 home win against Bronson on Friday.

    Despite the run-rule victory, Chiefland coach Ginger Fuller wasn’t pleased with her team’s readiness to play, especially early.

    “For these games, it’s hard for us to get geared up,” Ginger Fuller said. “That’s the biggest thing for us is it seems it’s hard for them to get amped up for the more familiar opponents.”

  • Bronson battles Chiefland close

    Bronson thought it caught Chiefland slipping. For the better part of Friday's game in Chiefland, it did. But the Indians pulled away for a 10-2 victory against the steadily improving Eagles that are coached by former CHS player Allen Strickland.

    "They're rusty ... We can get 'em!" shouted a Bronson player from the dugout in the second inning.

  • CHS relays strong at home

    Bell's boys and Branford's girls won the Chiefland Invitational track meet on Thursday. Chiefland's boys finished fourth while the girls tied for fifth in the six-school event.

    In the girls' division, Branford more than tripled its next closest competitor, besting runner-up Cedar Key by 156 points.

  • Football fires up

    Chiefland football coach Jim O'Neal fired up about 60 parents and players during an informational meeting last Tuesday. The spaghetti dinner was hosted by the CHS Quarterback Club in the middle school cafeteria.

    Two of the biggest announcements were the hiring of Carlton Scott as running back/receivers coach and the addition of a junior varsity squad for 2011.

  • Where did all the fans go?

    NASCAR This Week


    When I first began writing about NASCAR, the track in North Wilkesboro had 60,000 seats. Then Bruton Smith and Bob Bahre carved it up as if they were diplomats playing Monopoly with conquered land, and the capacity was revealed to be 37,000. Same when International Speedway Corporation got its hands on Martinsville and alleged attendance dropped by a third even though the grandstands remained the same.

  • CHS JV baseball wins big

    Chiefland’s Guy Bowers connects for a grand slam in a 14-0 win against St. Francis on Thursday. The  victory lifted coach Adam Gore’s Indians to 8-1 on the season. They’ve outscored opponents 111-25 in those wins.    

  • CHS weightlifting improves to 3-0

     Chiefland’s Joshua Berger powercleans 210 pounds to win first place in the 169-pound division in a home meet against Bronson on Wednesday. CHS’s weightlifting team won the meet 46-36 to improve to 3-0, with wins against Bell (34-26) and Trenton (55-31).    

  • CAAA opening a hit


    The Chiefland Area Athletic Association kicked off its baseball season on March 5.  

    Hundreds of athletes and fans were present. Mrs. Betty Walker, a long-time supporter of CAAA threw out the first pitch.  

    CAAA is a nonprofit organization that is run strictly by volunteers.  Coaches, parents, board members and many others have put in hundreds of hours to provide the children in our area with sporting events.   

  • Lady Indians put all the pieces...

    After dodging an early bullet, Chiefland rolled to a 10-0 home win against St. Francis on Thursday.

    The Lady Indians (9-4 overall, 7-1 in District 5-2A play) scored seven runs in the first inning and added three more in the fourth to end the game by mercy rule after five innings.
