  • Lady Indians pull out a close...

    It was Senior Night on Monday and the Chiefland Lady Indians were losing in the fifth inning 7-3 to Crystal River.

    This seemed to be the turning point! I have never seen a team play so well under pressure. This is a great thing for coaches as usually it is the coaches that have to have a pep talk or make a team believe in themselves.

    This team of Lady Indians get out on the field and at bat and take care of business. I am not sure that I have seen a position they have been put in where they cave under pressure.

  • Football alumni can relive...

    The gauntlet has been thrown down. Bragging rights are on the line.

    It’s the gridiron battle between Chiefland and Dixie County to end them all as alumni will take the field on May 7 at 7 p.m.

    At stake are pride, bragging rights and probably a few sore muscles. This is full contact football under the lights.

  • Celebrate Gopher Tortoise on...

    On Sunday, April 10, the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission (FWC) and its partners will celebrate Gopher Tortoise Day for the first time in Florida.

    Go to GopherTortoiseDayFL.com for ideas on being a part of this day and other gopher tortoise-related events and activities all year long.

    Gopher tortoises live in every county of Florida and are known for their extraordinary digging skills.

  • Lady Indians getting wiser as...

    The Chiefland Lady Indians just keep looking better and better! 

    Overall they are 20-1 and that loss was to Mayo who they have already beaten since.  In the district they are still undefeated and nationally ranked at 267 and State ranked at 37.  If you haven’t seen them in action yet, come on out for a game against Oak Hall in Gainesville on Friday at 7 p.m.

    On the road last week they shut out Bronson with a score of 11-1.

  • Track team meets Trenton today...

    Chiefland Indians track Coach Harry Hutson says the team is ready to meet Trenton at home this afternoon at 3:30 p.m., but the tracksters have their eyes on the district meet that is coming up in two weeks.

    The Indians are just coming off a great performance in the County Championship Track Meet in Cedar Key on Monday where they won the boys and girls overall titles.

    “That County Championship in Cedar Key — Brad Penny does a good job of hosting it,” Hutson said. “He has done a good job of carrying track and field in this county.”

  • Senior Night for softball


    Lady Indians Seniors honored at Monday night's game are, from left to right, Hannah Gore, Tatneisha Barnes, Lauren Stalvey and Morgan Anderson.

    They were presented with flowers and their team shirts. 

  • Indians look to clinch district...

    Chiefland baseball can clinch sole possession of first place and the No. 1 seed heading into the district playoffs later this month, needing just a single win this week.

    The Indians (14-4, 8-0 District 1A-7) were holding a 1 ½ game lead over Trenton in the district at the start of the week.

    The Indians have two games scheduled, including a matchup tonight against the Trenton Tigers at 7 p.m., after playing the Dixie County Bears on Monday.

    The Indians won their lone contest last week, dropping the Bears 8-1 on Thursday in a combined no-hitter.

  • Indians shut down Eagles

    Chiefland won its first district game of the season and entered this week on a three-game winning streak, holding opponents scoreless in 17 consecutive innings.

    The Indians (3-1, 1-0 District 4A-7) beat Bronson 14-0 in their district opener last Friday, keeping the Eagles to two hits. The win was the third in a row for the Indians -- all shutouts -- as the team is getting strong pitching from its rotation and mostly mistake-free baseball.
