  • Late heroics propel Chiefland...

    Last Tuesday’s baseball tilt between Chiefland and Williston was a game of precious few offensive opportunities.

    The Indians entered the final inning of the pitching and defensive duel having scrounged up just one run and two hits, the most important being an RBI double by junior Josh Webber that scored sophomore Kelby Osteen in the fourth for CMHS’ only previous run.

    Chiefland proved once again it was comfortable with late-game heroics, however, as senior Casey Lawson sliced a two-run double down the third-base line to lift the Indians to a 3-2 win.

  • Lady Indinans handed first...

    After three consecutive state championships, Chiefland softball coach Wayne Weatherford knows his team has a bullseye on its back.

    In a highly-anticipated matchup last Friday that only prefaced more meaningful games likely to come between the local rivals, Trenton found its target, finally getting over the hump against the Lady Indians with stellar defensive play and some small-ball offense.

  • Chiefland boys, girls speed past...

    The Chiefland boys and girls track and field teams each defeated four schools last Thursday to win their home meet at Wayne Pridgeon Stadium.

    The Indian boys (155) outscored Trenton (129), Newberry (71), Bronson (51) and Williston (47), while the Lady Indians prevailed with 118 points against Trenton (83), Newberry (73), Bronson (46) and Williston (34).

  • Lady Indians bounce back after...

    The Chiefland Indians softball club was in unfamiliar territory early last week.

    The Lady Indians watched their 24-game winning streak come to an end in Lake Butler against Union County Monday, and had little time to lick their wounds beyond the hour-plus ride home, as a district meeting with Branford awaited CMHS on Tuesday.

    A tired Chiefland squad got off to a sluggish start against the Buccaneers, but proved it had enough in the reserves to go the distance, as the Indians collected six insurance runs in the bottom of the sixth en route to a 10-3 win.

  • District powerhouses to collide...

    Good on good, that’s the best way to describe Friday’s district matchup in Chiefland between the Lady Indian and Trenton softball teams.

    The Lady Tigers were an integral part of the story of CMHS’ third straight state championship last season.

  • Tight-knit Lady Indians led by...

    The Chiefland High School softball team has reached the stage where its championships could nearly be taken for granted.

  • Smith walk-off double lifts...

    The stakes weren’t as high as they were the last time the teams met, but Chiefland did exact some revenge last Tuesday for its state finals loss to Lafayette (Mayo) in baseball action last Tuesday.

  • Gore seeking high turnout for...

    Adam Gore’s goal to attract more Chiefland High School students to play football has already hit a snag.The Indians’ first-year head football coach found out that one of the program’s set of uniforms only has enough for 37 players.

  • Cedar Key Open coming to...

    The second Cedar Key Open Golf Tournament will be held March 8 at the Chiefland Golf and Country Club.

    Chiefland sophomore Wyatt Hammond got off to a rocky start when he took the mound in the fifth inning Monday against Bronson.

    Hammond hit a pair of batters early in the inning before giving up a two-run single to senior pitcher Donnie Clifton, giving the Eagles a 4-2 advantage.

    But the rangy right-hander slammed the door shut on BMHS for the remainder of the game, helping the Indians collect a 5-4 come-from-behind win in the season opener in Chiefland.
