    With 18 players and a few empty seats on the bus, the Bobcats of Robert F. Munroe Day School began the 2015 campaign with a trip to the sand hills just north of Panama City to take on the Bucks of Dean Bozeman High School.  Under new Head Coach Rodell Thomas and fresh off of a positive summer of lifting weights, replacing seven departed seniors, and learning a new system, the Bobcats looked to see just where they are in terms of being ready for the regular season.  

  • Serve! County girls volleyball yields net excitement

    The Munroe volleyball team participated in The Canopy Road Classic preseason tournament hosted by Leon High School.  
    Preseason contests allow coaches to evaluate their team’s current status and make lists of what needs work before the actual season hits full gear.

    This season coach Striplin will be heading into his third year as the Panthers’ leader, and seems to be extremely optimistic about his team’s chances within their district as well as in the play-offs.
    The Panther coach said he believes in “quality over quantity” and isn’t overly concerned about having a specific number of players on his
    roster.

  • Jags slash Panthers in Friday’s pre-season opener

    Last Friday night East and West Gadsden provided the local gridiron fans with the sequel to their spring game in May.
    Once again the Jaguars and Panthers met on the neutral site of Corry Field, but this time the goal was to see which team had made the most progress over the
    summer.
    Both teams came out with a lot of energy, but undisciplined plays from both sides led to several penalties throughout the game.

  • With new head coach, East Gadsden Jaguars ready to roar this season

    Under the guidance of returned Coach Corey Fuller,  the Jaguars have turned the page on last year’s forgettable season, and have refocused themselves. Optimism within the players and coaches can be both seen and felt during their intense team practices.
    The seed of high expectation was planted by East Gadsden’s coaching staff in the spring, and is continually being watered during fall practice.  
    Fuller is providing his players with tough love in an effort to make sure “guys get better with each practice.”

    Because Alan Williams’ term will end in 2016 serving for eight years in the District 8 Florida House of Representatives seat, a new crop of candidates hope to be elected next year.

    Tallahassee.
