  • Chiefland softball keeps rolling

    Trenton took pregame like David ready to take down Goliath. The Lady Tigers were whooping and hollering like a team loaded with confidence as it prepared to take down the league’s top team, Chiefland.

    A couple of batters into the game in Trenton, the whooping had stopped, as the Lady Indians were well on their way to a 22-2 win to improve to 5-0 in District 5-2A play.

  • Blue Wave victory still out of...

    After yet another ball was bobbled in the outfield in the second inning, Chiefland fans sounded like they said, “Oh my gosh,” in unison.

  • From D.C. to G.B.

    Swarmed by hundreds of fans for most of Saturday afternoon, Nick Collins couldn’t find the words to describe his homecoming as easily as he found the endzone during Super Bowl XLV.

    “It’s been, uh, I don’t know ... Crazy, exciting, unreal ... Pretty much all the above,” Collins said.

    One says he did. He says he didn't, and he has the video to prove it.

  • Chiefland tunes up in Melody win

    With a game looming against P.K. Yonge the following day, Chiefland kept its top pitchers shelved during a 6-4 home win against Melody Christian on Thursday.

  • Levy Raiders open season with win

    The Levy County Raiders piled up 467 yards to upend the North Florida Vikings 30-0 in their season opener of United Football Federation action in Palatka on Saturday. 

    The Raiders moved the ball 72 yards on their first possession before the drive stalled at the Vikings' 72-yard line. The Vikings took over on downs only to face one of the league's stingiest defenses, eventually turning the ball over on downs.

  • Bronson breaks into win column

    Bronson held off a late rally by Dixie County to pull out a 6-5 victory, its first of the season, last Tuesday.
