  • Chiefland boys knocked out by...

    WILLISTON -- The baseball season came to a disappointing end for the Chiefland Indians Monday afternoon as they fell, 13-4, to Newberry in the first round of the district tournament.

    The Indians had beaten Newberry twice during the regular season, "but they were both competitive games," said CHS coach Kyle Parnell.

    Chiefland only had one hit over the first five innings, a first inning single by starting pitcher Adam Burton, as Newberry's Blaine Rhea used a barrage of curve balls to shut down the Indian bats. "He kept us off balance," said Parnell.

  • Diamond Eagles top Hawthorne to...

    Bronson boys played an exceptionally clean game to down Hawthorne 4-2 in the first round of the district tournament last week. Starting pitcher Luke Morrison allowed no hits and three walks through five innings, holding the Hornets scoreless with the help of a nearly flawless defensive backup.

    The Eagles hit timely and well, led by C.J. King who went 2-3 with a single and a double.

  • Bronson falls in semifinal

    After an outstanding start in the 2A District 5 tournament, in which they defeated Hawthorne 4-2 to get to the semifinal, Bronson baseball fell hard against top-seeded Mayo in a 10-0 five-inning loss.

    The Eagles had split the regular season with the Hornets, beating them 4-3 two weeks ago for the last district game of the year.

    “We beat a very good team on an off night, and today they showed why they were the number one seed,” said Bronson head coach Mike Pogue.

  • Raiders beat Lake City for...

    Levy County Raiders downed the Lake City Lions 25-6 in a game whose venue was unknown until virtually the last minute.

    Due to an organizational issue at National Independent Football League headquarters, the erstwhile host Lions traveled to WYAA field in Williston to play the league-leading Raiders. League prognosticators had picked Lake City over the Raiders by a projected score of 16-14, but the new hosts treated their guests rudely.

  • Gay finishes top 10 in state meet

    Bronson senior Elizabeth Gay didn't win, didn't PR, but she did fulfill a major goal she set for herself.

    “She wanted to go to the state meet this year and compete, and she did it,” said Bronson track and field head coach Greg Hamilton.

  • Chiefland boys finish off...

    After a rough 10-0 loss to 4A Baker County in the Red Devil Challenge, Chiefland put all their eggs in one basket and went out hard against Wildwood. The Indians attacked the opposite-district Wildcats, coming away with a 10-4 win. Chiefland hit steadily after the second inning, and pitcher Jacob Reidy survived a murmur from the Wildwood bats in the fifth inning, settling down to complete the game without ever getting ruffled.

  • No charm: Chiefland girls can...

    In the rubber match for the county and district crown, Chiefland-Williston softball, round three, was a strange anticlimax. After Chiefland got off to a sluggish start in Wednesday's district semifinal, Williston racked up an insurmountable 8-1 lead, which the Lady Indians chipped at in the later innings for an 8-3 final.

  • Hog wild on the Waccasassa

    It was the biggest turnout in years, with 60 boats and over 100 racers. The 31st Annual Wild Hog Canoe and Kayak Race to benefit Levy Association for Retarded Citizens (LARC) was a one-day reprieve from economic gloom and doom, a daylong party for anyone up for the adventure.

    “It doesn't look like a recession, does it?” asked race organizer Margie McGarva, of Bronson AMVETS Post 88.

    “We don't have the numbers yet, but I think we might do better than last year,” said Clyde McGarva, Post 88 commander.

    Chiefland track stalls at regionals

    Chiefland boys put in a mighty effort but came away empty-handed at the regional track meet at Lake Highland Prep last week. Senior Zach Tyson, who won the 300-meter hurdles at the previous week's district meet at The Villages, was eliminated in the preliminaries where he had the misfortune to run in the first heat with a good enough time to advance from the second heat.

    The boys' 4x800 team finished fifth, and the 4x800 team finished 13th.
