At last, Chiefland High School has finally been able to name its two varsity basketball coaches.

Mike Beck, a retired basketball, track and cross country coach from Pinellas County, will coach the varsity boys. Chiefland's athletic director Chris Wilson, who took over that post in 2005, will be the varsity girls' coach. They are assuming posts last held by Mark Lundy and Emily Gore, respectively.

Beck coached boys' basketball for many years at Largo High School. Later he switched to girls' track and cross country, succeeding Largo's legendary Brent Haley. Beck retired from Largo in 2004. In addition to coaching varsity boys' basketball here at Chiefland, he will also coach boys' and girls' track and field, and girls' cross country.

Coach Jennifer Anderson, who led the cross country team to good finishes in the two years since its inception, was named head track coach in the spring, following the retirement of Chiefland's legendary head coach Wendell Corbin, who coached here for 45 years. Anderson was forced to relinquish the post when a position change from science teacher to guidance counselor at CHS necessitated her return to school.
