  • Soggy week for girls sports

    The rain washed away many of the scheduled recent outdoors contests for softball and tennis in the county but a few games managed to squeeze in around the raindrops. 

    This week is the last week before Gadsden County schools close for spring break week March 17 to 21.

    The Munroe Lady Cats softball team had their best chance to beat 4A Leon High School for the first time in softball but after 10 innings of play, it was not meant to be. 

  • Munroe downs Franklin County, Westwood

    Taking advantage of steady pitching and strong hitting, the Bobcats of Robert F. Munroe Day School dispatched Franklin County on March 10 at home and Westwood (Camilla, Ga.) on the road March 13 in a pair of games shortened by the run rule. In doing so, Munroe kept its record perfect at 11-0. 

    “We’re happy to be where we are, but we’re still humble,” said Head Coach Jayme Williams. “We know we’ve got a lot to work on, our defense for one, if we want to get better.” 

  • Building team spirit
  • Softball, tennis continue for girls

    Since Florida made the transition to fast-pitch softball in 1994, it’s been a case of feast or famine for most teams. Teams are either good or bad, depending mostly on their development of a pitcher. The Munroe Lady Cats softball team ran up on two struggling programs last week — FAMU and East Gadsden — on their way to a 2-1 week this past week.

  • Persistent Bobcats break losing streak

    The long dry spell has ended.
