    The Bobcats of Robert F. Munroe will enter into the upcoming football season under the leadership of their recently acquired Head Coach Jimmy Harris. 

    Although this is his first year as the school’s head football coach, Harris is no stranger to the Bobcat Nation; he lined up along the team’s offensive and defensive lines in the 1970s.

    The Panthers didn’t have much time to reflect on their loss to FAMU High, as they took the field to play their second scrimmage against the Marauders of Maclay High School. 

  • Munroe falls to Aucilla

    After besting rival Aucilla Christian three times this season, the last for the District 1-2A championship, the Munroe Bobcats couldn’t make it four for four. 

    Their season came to an abrupt end in the regional playoffs as the visiting Warriors prevailed 4-1 Tuesday, May 6, at Bradford May Field. Aucilla limited Munroe to only two hits and took advantage of Bobcat errors to complete the upset. 

  • Munroe softball out in second round of playoffs

    The Munroe softball team lost for the fourth time this season to Aucilla Christian Academy, but it was this loss that stung the most. The Warriors won the 2A Region 1 semifinal game 10- 0 and ended the Lady Cats’ season.

    Bobcats shut out Cedar Creek in regional opener

    After finishing the regular season with a record of 20-5 and the title of District 1-2A champions, the Munroe Bobcats began the FHSAA 2A regional baseball playoffs with a convincing 5-0 win over District 2 runner-up Cedar Creek Christian from Jacksonville. 

    The Bobcats dominated all phases of the game, holding the visitors to one hit while collecting 10 of their own and committing only a single error. 

  • Lady Cat victory in first round regionals

    As the No. 2 finisher in the 2A District 1 tournament, the Munroe Lady Cats (12-10) softball team was once again in position to use the road to progress forward in the playoffs. 

    For three years straight, the team has had to make lemonade out of the lemons that Aucilla thrusts at them in the form of dominating softball. Fortunately, the team is immune to the perils of traveling and will again attempt to thwart the Warriors for the right to continue playing softball. 

  • Munroe dedicates new practice facility

    Losing two teammates and fellow students in the span of a couple of months during 2013 was difficult for all the students at Robert F. Munroe Day School. It was harder still on the parents and families. But due to the efforts of many in the Munroe community, including the baseball boosters and a wealth of others who loved the two student athletes and support the baseball program, J.C. Partin and Josh Wilder will live on as the namesakes of the new practice facility recently dedicated in their memory. 

  • Bobcats boys win district title

    After a one-year hiatus, the Munroe Bobcats are once more FHSAA District 1-2A champions after defeating arch-rival Aucilla for the third time this season 6-5. 

    The Bobcats won three consecutive district crowns in 2010, 2011 and 2012 before being bounced in the opening game of the tournament last season. With the victory, the Bobcats also reached 20 wins for the season, as their record improved to 20-5. 

  • Bobcats fall twice, win their regular season finale

    For the first time this season, the Munroe Bobcats suffered a two-game losing streak, dropping one-run games to Wewahitchka on Tuesday, April 15, and Maclay on Wednesday, April 16. The streak lasted until the next night when Munroe defeated Westwood in their final regular season game. 

    “We lost a couple of hard-fought games,” said Bobcat Coach Jayme Williams. “We had our chances in each one. We’re not happy we lost, but we competed. Hats off to Wewahitchka and Maclay for their play.”
