  • Kahne takes layover with Team...

    This stage of Kasey Kahne’s career is tumultuous almost by definition. What should be the prime of the 31-year-old’s career is a bit muddled, if only for now. Kahne left Richard Petty Motorsports near the end of last season. In 2012, he will join Hendrick Motorsports, replacing Mark Martin.

    This year, though, Kahne is taking a one-year ride with Team Red Bull as a teammate of Brian Vickers.

  • Chiefland completes Trenton...

    Chiefland senior Brent Slaughter’s face turned beat red as he yelled after finishing off Friday’s 8-7 win against Trenton with a strikeout.

    “Brent’s a guy that plays so hard and with a lot of emotion on every pitch,” said Chiefland coach Kyle Parnell. “He’s one of our senior leaders and has came through for us all season. They hit him hard a couple of times, but he fought and battled through it to finish a great ball game.”

  • Top Chiefs: CHS baseball wins...

    Bo Beauchamp delivered the final pitch of Saturday’s 14-2 win against P.K. Yonge for the 5-2A district tournament title and then stood his ground.

    Met on the grass in front of the pitcher’s circle by senior catcher Parrish Parnell, Beauchamp, who ended the five-inning game in Trenton with his seventh strikeout on his 100th pitch, became the hunted, not the hunter.

  • Classes get kids hooked on...

    Mike Lesso and Dave Morse of the Jacksonville Youth Summer Fishing Clinics can say they've taken more than 50,000 kids fishing.

  • FWC offers special hunts on...

  • Sun shines on Bronson, finally

    Players poured Gatorade on Bronson coach Allen Strickland's head after Saturday's 8-1 win against Hawthorne in the opener of the 5-2A District tourney. The eighth-seeded Eagles (4-17 overall) failed the first time with an entire cooler of red fruit punch flavored mix but caught the coach the second try with two 16-ounce bottles that turned Strickland's white jersey red.

  • Yonge & Done

    Seniors Kaylin Hastings and Lyndsie Stalvey hugged while holding back tears. Classmate Amber Richardson was completely exhausted. Junior Taylore Fuller simply looked furious, like someone had just stolen her dog, Gator.

    Clearly, it was an emotional end to an emotional rollercoaster ride for the 5-2A District tournament title. After 10 innings and nearly two and half hours, second-seeded Chiefland finally succumbed 4-3 against top-seeded P.K. Yonge in Gainesville.
