  • Chiefland baseball getting tuned...

    Chiefland baseball was like a heavy spear last year – strong hitting in support of heavyweight pitchers Ory Pitts and Daniel Galpin. The Indians were 18-3 going into districts when the unthinkable happened – they were eliminated in a loss to a P.K. Yonge team they'd beaten twice already.

    Head Coach Kyle Parnell remembers it well.

    “We lost 2-0,” he said.

    “Ory pitched well. We just didn't generate any runs.”

    Still, last year's was a good group, he recalls.

  • Chiefland boys run with P.K. in...

    The scoreboards wouldn't sync Friday night, with one telling time and the other one telling zeros, but anyone with eyes could see that for 32 minutes, Chiefland boys' matchup with P.K. Yonge was anybody's game, right up until the buzzer said, “P.K. wins, 63-54.”

    It was that close.

    Nothing other than a complete game from every Chiefland player would have come close, and the Indians did it, from consistent defense to ball movement to finishing shots and rebounding.

  • Chiefland's diamond girls...

    The steam coming off the players on the 38-degree diamond is a pretty good indication that, if energy counts, Chiefland softball is going to have another good year. Like last year, the Lady Indians play in the brutal District 5 of Class 3A, where the competition includes perennial local power Williston as well as Ft. White and P.K. Yonge. Last year, neither Chiefland nor Williston made it out of the district tournament, an occurrence so rare some folks ran to the weather channel to see if it was snowing in certain warmer locales.

  • Indians beat Eagles in their nest

    Indian fans filled the bleachers at the Bronson gym Saturday as Chiefland boys beat the Eagles 49-45, holding off overtime, it seemed, by the breath in a referee's whistle.

    Cantrell Richardson got the Indians off to a good start, taking the dish from Josh Wasson for a three off the left wing. Wasson was fouled on his next trip and made two free throws, making it 5-0 Chiefland before James Rivers got to the line for Bronson, making two.

  • Levy County Raiders football...

    Levy County Raiders traveled to Belleview to face a much-improved Belleview team in the Sonic Holiday Invitational Bowl. The Black Knights came into the game hoping to avenge a 27-0 defeat received a few weeks ago at the hands of the Raiders, but it was not to be, as Levy County again shut them out, 34-0.

  • 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.
