  • Lady Indians punch out Suwannee

    “Boon-Yah!” shouted Chiefland coach Randy Fuller as he threw what appeared to be an uppercut to punch out Suwannee after a 5-3 home win Tuesday.

    Fuller’s excitement instantly spilled over into the dugout, where a Columbia blue and black sea of glee ensued, and then onto the field after third baseman Caitlan Fuller’s rocket throw to first for the final out. Players whooped, hollered and hugged as if they’d just won a postseason game.

  • Freshman ReWard

    Youth gave a sluggish Chiefland team a boost en route to an 11-1 home win against Hawthorne.

    Although they recorded a mercy-rule victory, the Indians (14-3 overall, 13-2 in District 5-2A play) found themselves deadlocked at 1-all heading into the fifth when they exploded for 10 runs to end the game.

  • 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).
