  • Rivals return to the hardwood — for the last time?

    Every year the Jaguars and Panthers square off twice a year on the hardwood, once at East Gadsden’s gym and once at Shank’s gym on West Gadsden’s senior night game. Unlike all the other games at Shanks, this past Friday’s game was uniquely significant. If the district follows through on its plan to merge the schools next school term it will mean that the rivalry has come to an abrupt end.
