  • Friday Night Lights return to...

    Set your clocks for Indian time: Chiefland football hosts Ft. White in the spring game this Friday at 6 p.m. Head coach Ajay Ulmer says despite graduating plenty of talent, the Indians are loading up for a good spring contest.

    “We're pretty thin as far as numbers – we'll dress about 37 guys and have a bunch of guys playing both ways,” he said.

    “We've been doing a lot of conditioning, though, and we're probably in as good a shape as we've been in since I've been here.”

  • One coach, generations of...

    What is the secret to Coach Wendell Corbin's success: 40 years teaching and coaching, more than 5,000  students and athletes taught and 74 state champions in track and field?

    “I always treated my athletes like my own family.”

  • Area coaches honor Lundy with...

    After leading his scrappy team of underdogs to within sight of a regional berth, Chiefland boys' basketball head coach Mark Lundy was named District 7 Class 3A Coach of the Year by the Florida Athletic Coaches Association.

  • Fueled up to win

    Last year, after team rider Richard Gadson won the last race of the AMA Super Street drag bike circuit on Jones Performance Cycles' custom Kawasaki ZX14, team builder/tuner Chris Jones figured he probably made the right decision to quit his day job.

  • Spring football fever in...

    The crack of plastic on plastic, the thud of leather on leather, the tweet of the whistle, the shout of the coach, the panting of linemen and the drip, drip, drip of sweat. These are the sweet sounds of spring football.

    Chiefland Indians met Friday, May 1, for the first time this spring. They'll practice daily after school on the practice field behind Chiefland High School for the upcoming spring game against Ft. White.

  • Spring football starts in Bronson

    Spring returns to Bronson as Eagle football gets under way. Head coach Al Cooksey said between returning players and newcomers, this year's team has lots of talent.

    "We've got a good group of kids here," he said.

    "But, we've got a lot of work to do."

    Cooksey was joined on the grid by varsity assistants Mo Mitchell, Greg Hamilton, Jim Johnson, Mark Marrazo, Jeromi Birtkikidis and Greg Brochetti. Bronson football practices every day at 3:30 p.m. on the field at Old Bronson High School.

  • CHS celebrates hardwood Indians...

    Chiefland basketball held its awards banquet last week, and varsity head coaches Mark Lundy and Emily Gore honored their teams' commitment to hard work and improvement. Both teams reached for their JVs before the season was over, girls more heavily than boys, and found players there who were willing to sacrifice guaranteed playing time to help their teams.

  • Chiefland boys knocked out by...

    WILLISTON -- The baseball season came to a disappointing end for the Chiefland Indians Monday afternoon as they fell, 13-4, to Newberry in the first round of the district tournament.

    The Indians had beaten Newberry twice during the regular season, "but they were both competitive games," said CHS coach Kyle Parnell.

    Chiefland only had one hit over the first five innings, a first inning single by starting pitcher Adam Burton, as Newberry's Blaine Rhea used a barrage of curve balls to shut down the Indian bats. "He kept us off balance," said Parnell.

  • Diamond Eagles top Hawthorne to...

    Bronson boys played an exceptionally clean game to down Hawthorne 4-2 in the first round of the district tournament last week. Starting pitcher Luke Morrison allowed no hits and three walks through five innings, holding the Hornets scoreless with the help of a nearly flawless defensive backup.

    The Eagles hit timely and well, led by C.J. King who went 2-3 with a single and a double.
