  • Munroe blanks Aucilla, bests Brookwood

    One was an important match-up with a district foe and heated rival. 

    The other was simply a chance to play another good team with nothing really on the line but a chance to better the record. 

    The outcomes would have made you think just the opposite were true as the Munroe Bobcats buried district foe Aucilla 9-0, out-hitting the visiting Warriors 13-3 in doing so. 

  • 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.

  • 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.

  • Bobcats win three more, prep for Aucilla

    The Robert F. Munroe Bobcats enjoyed something they were unable to accomplish last season: a 3-0 week. 

    In doing so, the team defeated the Florida State University School (Florida High) and Wakulla on consecutive nights before besting FAMU in their first district game. 

  • Persistent Bobcats break losing streak

    The long dry spell has ended.
