  • 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.

  • Lady Eagles feel the sting

    The Lafayette Mayo Hornets ladies basketball team jumped out to a quick 19-5 lead over the Bronson Lady Eagles and never looked back. The lady Hornets had well over 25 take-a-ways in the game and turned most of them into easy baskets. The Lady Hornets put the game into the running clock rule as they took a 52-18 lead at the end of the third quarter.

    Each team managed to score five points each in the final quarter as the Hornets held the ball running time off the clock for the 57-23 win.

    Carttasha Macklin had 22 points for the Hornets and Sunshine Reid added 16 points.

  • Women's Golf

    On Dec. 17, the Chiefland Ladies Golf Association had 18 golfers play, in three member, blind draw teams. The best front nine and the best back nine scores were chosen out of the three totals. An average of all three handicaps was then deducted to determine the low net winning scores.

  • Turnovers a factor as Lady...

    Still looking for answers, Chiefland girls fell 49-36 to Ft. White Thursday. They suffered from turnovers and struggled for three quarters to put the ball in the hoop, so that even a gonzo fourth quarter couldn't save them.

    “We're just not making easy shots,” said head coach Emily Gore.

  • Uniform crisis threatens...

    If someone doesn't help, Chiefland basketball is in for a tough season.

    Last month, the Chiefland Citizen reported a break-in at the Chiefland High School athletic department, and the theft of some uniforms and equipment. The brief report didn't begin to touch on the loss. The football and basketball programs lost, between them, almost $27,000 in vital gear.

  • Indians chop Tigers, get tossed...

    Chiefland boys got off to a great start last Monday with a 61-48 win over Trenton, but slipped a bit the next night, losing to Interlachen 68-64 in overtime.

    The Indians had a great preseason showing, winning both of their games in Williston's Tip-Off Tournament. The away game at Trenton was the first of the regular season, and the Indians played crisply and won easily.
