  • 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.

  • Hornets swarm in Eagles'...

    Hawthorne rolls on undefeated, and Bronson basketball is taking a hard look in the mirror, trying to decide what to fix first. The Eagles lost 73-55 Friday to the district-leading Hornets and must now look to retool for the second half of the season.

  • Eagles take sting out of Hornets

    With leading scorer James Rivers still out of action, nursing a sore ankle, the Bronson Eagles took the sting out of the Lafayette Mayo Hornets on Friday night Dec. 19, and flew to a 73-56 win before a half filled gym in Bronson.

    The Eagles took their first lead as the first quarter came to an end 14-12. The Hornets continued to keep pace with the Eagles and trailed by just three points, thanks to a 3-point basket by Antwan Brown as the first half ended with the Eagles leading 27-24.

  • Bronson plays tough, but falls...

    In perhaps the most aggressive and skillful play that the Lady Eagles have faced this season, Bronson held their own in the first half of the soccer match last week against the Fort White Indians, losing in the second half 2-0.
