  • With new head coach, East...

    Under the guidance of returned Coach Corey Fuller,  the Jaguars have turned the page on last year’s forgettable season, and have refocused themselves. Optimism within the players and coaches can be both seen and felt during their intense team practices.
    The seed of high expectation was planted by East Gadsden’s coaching staff in the spring, and is continually being watered during fall practice.  
    Fuller is providing his players with tough love in an effort to make sure “guys get better with each practice.”

  • West Gadsden High School...

    Last season under the leadership of Head Coach Joey Striplin, West Gadsden went 4-6 and ultimately took the next step toward reaching the postseason.
    This season coach Striplin will be heading into his third year as the Panthers’ leader, and seems to be extremely optimistic about his team’s chances within their district as well as in the play-offs.
    The Panther coach said he believes in “quality over quantity” and isn’t overly concerned about having a specific number of players on his
    roster.

  • Jags slash Panthers in Friday’s...

    Last Friday night East and West Gadsden provided the local gridiron fans with the sequel to their spring game in May.
    Once again the Jaguars and Panthers met on the neutral site of Corry Field, but this time the goal was to see which team had made the most progress over the
    summer.
    Both teams came out with a lot of energy, but undisciplined plays from both sides led to several penalties throughout the game.

  • Bobcats open with pre-season...

    With 18 players and a few empty seats on the bus, the Bobcats of Robert F. Munroe Day School began the 2015 campaign with a trip to the sand hills just north of Panama City to take on the Bucks of Dean Bozeman High School.  Under new Head Coach Rodell Thomas and fresh off of a positive summer of lifting weights, replacing seven departed seniors, and learning a new system, the Bobcats looked to see just where they are in terms of being ready for the regular season.  

  • Serve! County girls volleyball...

    The Munroe volleyball team participated in The Canopy Road Classic preseason tournament hosted by Leon High School.  
    Preseason contests allow coaches to evaluate their team’s current status and make lists of what needs work before the actual season hits full gear.  
    Players have the opportunity to shake off their nerves and fine tune fundamentals.  All of this is “free” since the games don’t count in the regular season record.  

  • Bobcat boys prepare for final...

    The Munroe Bobcats came out of spring break to a pair of district games against Tallavana and FAMU High.  Playing without seniors Bo Bailey, Max Baroody, Will Harris, Bradley Klees, and Casey Mathers, who were in Breckinridge, Colo., for the annual senior trip, and with fellow seniors Nolan Haire and Jonny Walkup using the week to rest up, the Bobcats enjoyed an abbreviated week of Baseball.

  • Lady Cats emerge from spring...

    This past week in softball action the three county teams that field a softball team:  Munroe, East Gadsden and Tallavana Christian,  played with Munroe emerging as the top team in the county.
    Munroe 20
    Tallavana Christian 5
    Tallavana Christian scored five runs off freshman pitcher Emily Harris to open up the district game played at Munroe on Tuesday, March 24.  Munroe then answered in the bottom of the first with six runs.  Hannah Wilde came in to pitch and finished the game on the mound, getting the win.

  • Late sports news

    WGHS Panthers beat North View 74-44 in a Tuesday night game. If the Panthers prevail in Friday night’s match, they will be on their way to Lakeland to compete for the state championship.  For the story on Friday’s game that made the Panthers district champs, see Page 1B.

  • Panthers sink claws into...

    After completing their regular season schedule with an impressive record of 25-2, the Panthers entered into the District Tournament, which was hosted at Panama City’s Bozeman High School.
    West Gadsden smashed Liberty County 74-43 in their first game of the tournament, en route to the championship game.
    The Panthers faced the Franklin County Seahawks in the Championship game; after a slow start they turned up their defensive intensity and went on to win by a score of 59-36.

  • Swinging for the fences: girls...

    Munroe
    MACLAY     15
    MUNROE     7
    The visiting Maclay Marauders struck in the first inning for 4 runs but Munroe answered for 2 in the bottom of the first inning.  Maclay then scored seven runs over the next three innings to the Lady Cats six runs and the game stayed close until the top of the fifth.  A few hits combined with a few Munroe errors gave Maclay four runs that Munroe could never answer.
