    The Newberry varsity volleyball team showed the difference a month in between games, and a few unstoppable outside hitters, can make on the court.
    The Panthers beat Chiefland 3-0 (25-12),(25-16), (25-17) on Oct. 23, advancing to the district championship game and clinching a spot in the regional tournament. The Panthers went on to beat Union County in the tournament finals.

  • A tough one to take

    This one wasn’t fun.
    The running game, which had worked so well for so many games, couldn’t get anything going.
    The defense, which seemed to shut down nearly every opponent, couldn’t seem to get off the field.
    And Chiefland’s rivals from the other side of the Suwannee once again walked off the field celebrating.
    The Union County loss was about as solid a loss as any. The Newberry loss was tough, but understandable. The Dixie County loss was simply brutal.
