 Chiefland Middle School celebrated a pair of milestones last week, winning Suwannee Middle School Athletic Conference titles in both volleyball and football.

In football, The Braves won their second consecutive SMSAC title, defeating Fort White, 38-0.

The girls volleyball team defeated Bradford County 25-21, 25-21 in their title match.

Football coach Anthony Phillips said an overall team effort contributed to the Braves’ 14-game winning streak, spanning two seasons.

“The kids just got better each week, and by the end of the year we were a really good football team,” Phillips said.

Chiefland’s defense was dominant all season, allowing only 24 points and earning five shutouts in seven games. Their offense wasn’t too shabby, either. The Braves scored 286 points in the same seven games.

Adding to the winning attitude was the contributions of assistant coaches Kyle Parnell, Andy Kidd and Pat Burton, Phillips said.

“We’ve been doing this together for several years, and I think that’s one reason for our success,” Phillips said. “We’ve stayed together.”
