  • Lady Cat victory in first round...

    As the No. 2 finisher in the 2A District 1 tournament, the Munroe Lady Cats (12-10) softball team was once again in position to use the road to progress forward in the playoffs. 

    For three years straight, the team has had to make lemonade out of the lemons that Aucilla thrusts at them in the form of dominating softball. Fortunately, the team is immune to the perils of traveling and will again attempt to thwart the Warriors for the right to continue playing softball. 

  • Munroe dedicates new practice...

    Losing two teammates and fellow students in the span of a couple of months during 2013 was difficult for all the students at Robert F. Munroe Day School. It was harder still on the parents and families. But due to the efforts of many in the Munroe community, including the baseball boosters and a wealth of others who loved the two student athletes and support the baseball program, J.C. Partin and Josh Wilder will live on as the namesakes of the new practice facility recently dedicated in their memory. 

  • Bobcats boys win district title

    After a one-year hiatus, the Munroe Bobcats are once more FHSAA District 1-2A champions after defeating arch-rival Aucilla for the third time this season 6-5. 

    The Bobcats won three consecutive district crowns in 2010, 2011 and 2012 before being bounced in the opening game of the tournament last season. With the victory, the Bobcats also reached 20 wins for the season, as their record improved to 20-5. 

  • Bobcats fall twice, win their...

    For the first time this season, the Munroe Bobcats suffered a two-game losing streak, dropping one-run games to Wewahitchka on Tuesday, April 15, and Maclay on Wednesday, April 16. The streak lasted until the next night when Munroe defeated Westwood in their final regular season game. 

    “We lost a couple of hard-fought games,” said Bobcat Coach Jayme Williams. “We had our chances in each one. We’re not happy we lost, but we competed. Hats off to Wewahitchka and Maclay for their play.”

  • Munroe girls in district...

    With all other county teams ousted from their district softball tournaments, Munroe was thrust into the district championship game against Aucilla thanks to a last-minute forfeit by FAMU-DRS an hour before first pitch. FAMU forfeited out of the bracket while Munroe was warming up April 16 at Aucilla’s field, sending the Bobcats into the district finals April 17 against No. 1-seeded Aucilla. 

  • RFM wins 2 more

    With one week remaining in the regular season, the Robert F. Munroe Bobcats saw their overall record increase to 18-3 with wins over District 1-2A foe Tallavana and Holmes County. The Tallavana victory also left the Bobcats a perfect 6-0 in district play, with the season-ending tournament looming in Aucilla in two weeks.

    In the final push of regular season softball, the Munroe softball team went 2-1 and the East Gadsden team lost, too.

  • Munroe runs past Tallavana,...

    After seeing their unbeaten streak end with two losses in Jacksonville, the Bobcats of Robert F. Munroe started a new winning streak with victories over district foe Tallavana and interstate rival Brookwood (Thomasville, Ga.) this past week. 

    “We’re happy to get back on the winning track,” said Bobcat Head Coach Jayme Williams. “We learned a lot about ourselves in the PTown Classic and got an opportunity to put it to use this week.”
