CHS celebrates hardwood Indians at banquet

-A A +A
By The Staff

Chiefland basketball held its awards banquet last week, and varsity head coaches Mark Lundy and Emily Gore honored their teams' commitment to hard work and improvement. Both teams reached for their JVs before the season was over, girls more heavily than boys, and found players there who were willing to sacrifice guaranteed playing time to help their teams.

The high point for Chiefland boys, Lundy said, was coming back from a deficit to beat Dixie County in the district quarterfinal. For the girls, Gore said, it was the transformation from the year before, with a team that often couldn't contend in games, to a team that was very much in the hunt every night.

Chiefland boys were senior-heavy, losing six to graduation. The girls are luckier, losing only two. Both teams had several high quality younger players who saw significant playing time, and will be in a position to lead their teams next year.
