Indians shaky in tournament opener

-A A +A
By Claude Lewis

WILLISTON - Make no mistake, the Chiefland High baseball team is in the midst of a fine season.

The 14-3 record through this past Monday speaks volumes for that.

But every once in a while, the Indians just don't have it. And when they're bad, they're pretty darn bad.

Take Monday's 11-4 loss to Dunnellon on the first day of the Williston Spring Break Tournament, for example.

Lackluster, lethargic and lifeless are just a few adjectives on how the Indians looked.

"We weren't sharp today and they took advantage," said Chiefland coach Kyle Parnell. "There was some lackadaisical baserunning early that took away scoring opportunities. That sort of set the tone."

Chiefland played pool games against Wildwood on Tuesday and West Port on Wednesday.

"I told the kids if they didn't want to play, then don't come back," Parnell said.

Or in other words, while this week is spring break for Levy Schools, the players need to be focusing on the tournament and not horsing around on the river or at the beach.

Chiefland did little right against Dunnellon, a Class 4A school which improved its record to 11-7.
