  • 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

    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.

    It’s getting exciting to watch this group of Chiefland Lady Indians and the softball coaches as they are getting better each game!

  • 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.

  • Officiating left much to be...

    I can remember when I played for Coach Vickers as a lady Indian and always feeling intimidated when we played against a team from Gainesville. 

    The Lady Indian softball team took it in stride with no problem to win their game against Oak Hall last week.

    The game was packed with fans and the intensity was high the entire game along with frustration from the officiating.

    I do not know the game of softball as much as I should but I saw calls that were inconsistent from the last game against Williston.

  • Indians outlast cross-county...

    Chiefland emerged from a pitching duel with Williston as the 1-0 winner last Friday, improving to 1-1 on the season in boys baseball.

    Chase Malloy’s two out infield single brought Lonnie Hinote in from third base to give the Indians the win. The outing between the non-conference county rivals is the latest in a string of close contests the two have played.

  • Swinging into baseball season...

    Regular baseball practice was interrupted by the rain one day last week, but the boys didn’t stop there.

    While the Junior Varsity team was sent home due to the poor weather conditions on Thursday, Jan. 28, Chiefland Middle High School’s Varsity Baseball team moved to the covered batting facility on the school’s grounds to work on.

    Upon taking this assignment I was excited and thought just because I know the game of basketball it would be easy.

    Boy was I wrong.   

    I can remember as a Chiefland Lady Indian athlete waiting for the paper to come out and see what was in there about me or my team. 

    I asked Miss Lou at the Citizen how do I write this, she said to write it the way I would tell it if I were sitting out with my nana on the porch swing.  So I thought about that as I watched the game…
