  • Fuller to leave Jags for Cougars

    Although Coach Corey Fuller will soon leave East Gadsden, he recently reflected  on the Jaguars’ football season.
    The Jags finished their season with a 5-5 record, which Fuller said is an improvement from the past two years.  Fuller said in  2015 the Jags finished with a 1-8 record and 0-10 in 2014.
    “We didn’t finish the way we wanted to finish, but the kids had a great year all-in-all,” Fuller said.

  • Panthers win at free-throw line

    Last Friday in a Thanksgiving tournament hosted by Rickards High, West Gadsden found themselves matched up against a scrappy P.K. Yonge team from Gainesville. Both teams played a very physical game on the defensive end of the court, which led to many trips to the free-throw line. The Panthers played solid offense for the final two minutes of the second quarter. Two big shots from the charity strip by senior forward Mark Bradwell, gave West Gadsden  22-19 lead at the intermission.

  • Lady Bobcats see success at the net

    Munroe
    The Munroe volleyball team has now won four straight matches under new head coach, Steve Canfield.  It doesn’t hurt at all to have a roster with four starting senior players.  Last week the Lady Cats picked up two district wins.  They defeated rival Aucilla Christian 3-1 and Tallavana Christian 3-0.  
    Munroe defeats Aucilla: 25-23, 19-25, 25-16, 25-14

  • Lady Jags play furiously, lose state champs slot

    Eleven points separated the East Gadsden Lady Jaguars from the Brooks-Debartolo School, and those same 11 points denied the team a chance to play for the 4A State Championship.  Even worse, the Jaguars, who led at the end of the first quarter, were ahead
    51-50 with four minutes remaining in the game, but a furious rally, spurred by a

    Jacksonville Bolles is an impressive school, with impressive facilities and a waiting list to get in.  East Gadsden’s Lady Jaguars were not impressed, however.  They were so unimpressed they sent Bolles back to Jax with a 61-39 defeat and took the
    4A Region 1 title back to the house.

    West Gadsden jumped out to a 2-0 lead 20 seconds into the game but their advantage was quickly erased as Baker High nailed a corner shot from beyond the arch with 6:04 left in the period.
