  • Tourney brings fisherman to area...

    Seven inches of rain two days before the 10th annual Crappie USA Tournament at Lake Talquin Jan. 23 led to fewer participants in tournament than in years past. In 2009, more than 50 boats entered the tournament, while only 28 entered this year.

    "It was a combination of the economy and bad weather. I entered this year but because the fishing is so poor, I didn't even bring my boat out," said Ed Allen, a Lake Talquin resident.

    A cold and misty morning gave way to a beautiful afternoon in time for the 3 p.m. weigh-in. More than $4,200 was the payout this year.

  • Munroe, WGHS take wins, EGHS...

    Gadsden County basketball teams continue to hover around average as West Gadsden High School won one, Robert F. Munroe Day School split and East Gadsden High dropped two tough district games.

    This week marks the last week of regular season girls basketball and district seedings are already set for the tournaments that tip off next week.

    The Munroe Lady Cats picked up one district win but lost the one they really needed last week.  The Lady Cats survived both a slow start and the loss of leading scorer, Beth Summerford, to defeate John Paul II 45-20. 

  • Girls hoops teams back on track

    The county girls basketball teams were impressive this past week going 7-2 against some formidable opposition.

Munroe Day School defeated Liberty County and Poplar Springs but lost to Malone in a district contest.

  • Girls hoops teams win some, lose...

    “Sometimes you win some, sometimes you lose some” must have been the motto for all three county girls hoops teams last week as each suffered defeat but managed to pull it together to win another day.

    The Robert F. Munroe Lady Cats lost a blowout, played a close one and then blew out another in a complex week of basketball.
