    An already difficult season ended with four losses for the Munroe Varsity Boys. The Bobcats dropped decisions to Altha, North Florida Christian, Liberty County and Poplar Springs.
    “Yes, this season has definitely been a struggle,” said Head Coach Joey Birdsong. “We commit too many turnovers and our shot selection isn’t what it needs to be, but the upside is the kids are all still working and trying to improve. We’ve got the district tournament next week, so we still have a chance to find some success.

    Hoop Fest Tournament; during the trip the Panthers defeated Barron County but suffered losses to Thomasville High and Seminole County.
