Final four on the line in fourth meeting between Chiefland-Dixie County

The Chiefland baseball team is 0-3 against Dixie County this season after three closely-fought games.

But the next one will be the most important, as the clubs are set to meet in the regional finals (“Elite 8”) in Cross City, Friday, May 17, at 7 p.m. The winner advances to the Class 1A final four in Fort Myers.

Chiefland went on the road May 14 and defeated District 1A-8 champion Fort Meade 9-5, while the Bears beat 1A-8 runner-up Frostproof 12-2. It was Dixie County’s first playoff win in program history. The Indians are back in the regional finals for the second year in a row, looking for a chance to return to the state final four for the first time since 2016, when they made the state finals.
