  • Indians clawed by Panthers

    Chiefland boys looked sluggish in a mostly close 50-39 loss to district rival Newberry Friday. Expectations were high for the Indians after a breakout game against ranked rival Williston, which Chiefland lost only after putting a bad scare into the slumping Devils.

  • Indians go Bear hunting

    The Indians are going Bear hunting! CHS had a pep rally Wednesday to get fired up for Chiefland's Friday home game against tough district rival Dixie County. Basketball Head Coach Mark Lundy told the crowd that the Indians are currently tied with the Bears for third in the district, which also includes conference leaders P.K. Yonge and Williston. If Chiefland beats Dixie Friday, the Indians would take over third place and improve their seeding for the district tournament, which starts in February.

  • CHS girls defend, don't...

    Chiefland girls had another tough outing against district foe P.K. Yonge, to whom they also lost in the first half of the season. The Lady Wave brought their fullcourt trapping defense into Chiefland Thursday, along with deadeye shooting by Jaterra Bonds and Niya Johnson, and left with a 65-18 win.

    Katelyn Allen led Lady Indian scoring with six points and Renashia Bowers and Janessa Barrios followed with four points each.

    The Lady Indians played much better the following night against Dixie County, falling 39-33 after nearly recovering from a 20-9 first half deficit.

  • New district slot a good fit for...

    The tentative realignments of football districts and classifications by the Florida High School Athletic Association (FHSAA) looks favorable for the Chiefland, as the Indians move down to Class 1A District 5. Schools are assigned to classifications by population, and to districts by geography, and Chiefland High School now falls into a smaller population category.

    Chiefland football head coach Ajay Ulmer likes the Indians' chances in the new district to which they've tentatively been assigned.

  • Beckham's Canes come close...

    Former Bronson basketball head coach Kelly Beckham took his Gainesville Hurricanes to the Tampa Hoops Classic last week, beating Oak Ridge (Tenn.) 64-49 and Thomas Jefferson (Brooklyn, N.Y.) 70-52 to ride the tournament bracket into the third round. At press time, the Canes were set to face Orlando Olympia in the semifinal, Olympia having beaten Tampa Berkeley Prep 69-64 and Clearwater 65-44.

    Day One

    Chiefland vs. Interlachen

    It took two overtimes to do it, but Chiefland boys finally got the upper hand for a 66-63 win over Interlachen, a streaky team that put the Indians down the first week of the season. Chiefland's defensive hustle kept them in the game even when their turnovers threatened to give it away. For every giveaway on the offensive end, the Indians grabbed a pick at the other end. When it counted, they finally shut the door.

  • From a brawl to a bowl win

    This year in sports saw extraordinary achievement, obstacles overcome and once-in-a-lifetime luck. It also saw the saddest sports story we’ve ever had to print – the untimely death at age 54 of beloved Sports Editor Claude Lewis. Lewis was on his way to watch Chiefland football play Hamilton County, and never got to see that game. He was succeeded by veteran sportswriter Jenna McKenna, but he can never be replaced.

  • Gent's success is family...

    Fans of Chiefland football must have hollered on the day after Christmas when, with 10:16 left in the Motor City Bowl against Central Michigan, Florida Atlantic QB Rusty Smith drilled the football into the arms of CHS alum Cortez Gent as he stepped into the left end zone. It was the insurance TD for the Owls, who'd come back from an opening deficit against the favored Chippewas and would go on to win 24-21.

  • Chiefland boys get vital...

    After a disruptive power outage killed the lights and the rhythm of the game, Chiefland boys needed patience and persistence to get the upper hand on Ft. White Thursday, though did, at last. Finally breaking open the fourth quarter, the Indians in blue downed the red team 56-42.

    “It's a district win and we'll take it,” said Chiefland head coach Mark Lundy.
