CAAA hoops alive and well

-A A +A

The Chiefland Area Athletic Association will have a winter basketball season, after all.

Signups were initially slow, and it looked like there might not be any ball, but a very successful registration session on Saturday gave the CAAA satisfactory numbers.

"We sent out flyers to the schools and really got a good response,"said CAAA president Wayne Weatherford. "We have 75 kids now. It will be a small league, but we have enough."

The ages for those registered range from 5 to 14.

Weatherford said he'll be having an organizational meeting at 6 p.m. Wednesday at the CAAA Complex at Strickland Park. He said he would take late signees.

Chiefland High boys basketball coach Mark Lundy will also be involved in the league. He knows how important it is having the young kids of Chiefland playing organized ball.

Teams will be drawn up and practices may begin by next week.

Games will be played on Saturdays and perhaps a weeknight or two.

"We won't play late," Weatherford added.


The Newberry High football team learned in shocking fashion what Pahokee football is all about.

How about 53-14? Ouch.
