  • Eagles knocked out in district...

    The lights in the office are dim, and Miles Davis' “Kind of Blue” plays softly. Quietly defiant, the trumpet bursts into “So What” as Bronson Head Coach Aaron Haldeman tries to describe what happened Tuesday, when the Eagles, incredibly, lost by 57-56 to Branford in the district tournament opener.

  • Chiefland baseball cleans up in...

    Chiefland won big in both appearances at their own First Pitch Classic last week, battering St. John Lutheran 11-1 on Tuesday, and then rocking Bronson 14-4 on Friday. The Indians are ready to get serious now, starting the regular season with three games on the road.

    On Tuesday, Chiefland would travel far, heading down to The Villages for a first time crack at that matchup. Indians' Head Coach Kyle Parnell couldn't commit to a preview of the Buffalo – “We've never played them; don't know anyone who's played them,” he said.

  • Lady Indians start 2-0 against...

    Chiefland softball is already 2-0, and 1-0 in the district, starting off with a big 4-0 shutout win at Dixie County last Thursday and cruising straight into an 11-4 away win Friday at opposite-district foe Union County (Lake Butler).

    Lady Indians' Head Coach Wayne Weatherford said he started senior Brittany Davis on the mound against the Bears, and she allowed no hits or runs in four innings. Kristen Trail closed the game out allowing only one hit in her three innings.

    “We had a real good opener – 4-0, no errors,” Weatherford said.

  • Chiefland wins over Dixie; to...

    Chiefland boys beat rival Dixie County 67-65 Tuesday to advance to the semifinal round of the Class 3A District 5tournament. They'll play top seed Williston Friday at 7 p.m. in Chiefland. Newberry, winner in their early Tuesday matchup with Fort White, will play P.K. Yonge Friday at 5:30. The winners of Friday's games will meet Saturday at 7 p.m. in the tournament final.

  • Eagles hold off Seven Rivers for...

    If you love basketball, you love a close game, except on Senior Night – that's the time for a blowout. Friday night, Bronson fans almost got the opposite of their wish, as the visiting Seven Rivers Warriors racked up a gruesome 25-14 halftime lead before finally falling 44-39 to their hosts.

    “I told the guys at the half, 'The good news is, we're down by 11 and couldn't play any worse,'” said Eagles' Head Coach Aaron Haldeman.

    “Now let's get out there and finish what we started and have a good Senior Night.”

  • Bronson girls learn from brutal...

    Two weeks ago, Dionna Hamilton and Kelsey Russell were among the best players on their Bronson Middle School girls' basketball team. Last Tuesday, they were varsity players trying to hold off third-seeded Trenton in the first round of the district tournament. Bronson lost 62-30 as the six-player team – the remaining four from the original varsity plus Hamilton and Russell – could not fend off a surging Trenton team that has had their number all season.

  • Chiefland girls bow out, look to...

    Chiefland girls made a great run at Newberry in their first round district tournament game, but were rebuffed at the end in a 57-36 elimination loss. Foul trouble was the Lady Indians' biggest problem; with power players Katelyn Allen and Madalyn McCray on the bench along with ballhandler Charlene Davis and defensive star Sharnese Rome, the Panthers were able to take their best shots.

  • Davis is planning his next level...

    His smile is pleasant, his manner gentle. At first look, would the casual observer know that Stephen Davis is a drive killer?

    Davis, a senior at Chiefland High School, is winding down his senior basketball season, following a senior football season in which he was named Second Team All-State at the defensive back position.

  • Devils sleep late, come back on...

    Williston boys played the Rope-A-Dope for three quarters Friday night, waiting until the bell rang on the fourth quarter to explode to a 56-39 win over Chiefland. The Indians played one of their best games of the season for the first 24 minutes, owning the lane at both ends and waxing the glass. Williston challenged somewhat in the third quarter, momentarily taking a lead up to four points, but Chiefland never let the Devils stray far.

  • Davis, Hall named All-State for...

    Chiefland's Stephen Davis and Chance Hall received All-State honors. Davis was named All-State Second Team for defensive back and Hall received Honorable Mention notice for offensive line.

    Congratulations Stephen and Chance! Your play made the difference in Chiefland's season.
