  • Munroe closes season with win,...

    The last week of regular season for girls basketball ended on a positive note for only one county team. 

    After losing to Maclay in a close one earlier in the week, Robert F. Munroe Day School’s Lady Bobcats defeated Poplar Springs for the second time to close out their season.  East Gadsden High School defeated West Gadsden High mid-week but then lost to a Port St. Joe team that won 19 games this season.  West Gadsden dropped its last two final games to Aucilla Christian and East Gadsden, thus wrapping up the 2009-10 regular season of girls basketball.

  • TCS Lions to host big matchup...

    Tallavana Christian School will host Emmanel Christian, East Division Conference champions Friday night.

    The varsity and junior varsity teams at TCS each have 15-2 records. The TCS  varsity Lions lost to Emmanuel earlier this year by 5 points.

    The JV team will plan at 4:30 p.m., followed by the Lady Lions at 5:45, and the varsity boys at 7:20.

    This will be the last home game of the season for the Lions, who will take on Panama City Feb. 9 at 5:30 p.m.

  • 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. 

    West Gadsden High School defeated North Florida Christian and Franklin County but lost to Port St. Joe.  East Gadsden High picked up three, including wins over Taylor and Madison counties and Gody.  Robert F. 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.  

  • Jags trample local competition

    The East Gadsden High School Jaguars’ season opener was played Dec. 1 against Jefferson County. The Jags came out on top of the Tigers, 84-58.

    Game leaders were Jessie Ray with 12 points and two steals, Andre Robinson had eight points, 13 rebounds and two blocked shots. John Battles added eight points, six assists and four steals, while Desmond Gibson pitched in eight points, five rebounds and three assists.

  • West Gadsden High undefeated in...

    Basketball season is now in full swing across Gadsden county and West Gadsden High School is 3-0 under new head coach Gene Granger.

    Granger is a 1999 graduate of Florida High in Tallahassee and had a great career scoring over 1,200 points as a shooting guard and leading the 'Noles to two Final Four appearances. He went on to play one year at Tallahassee Community College before taking his talents to Charleston Southern University where he was the Buccaneers’ team captain as a junior and senior.

  • West Gadsden ladies pick up win

    In county basketball action last week, West Gadsden High School was the only team to pick up a win and the Panthers picked up two to move to 3-5 on the season. 

    East Gadsden High and Robert F. Munroe Day School each lost two games. This week marks the last week of games until after Christmas break for all three teams with the exception of East Gadsden, which hosts basketball power Ribault Dec. 22.

  • Salters says expectations are...

    Bo may know football and Bo may know baseball, but Dimitric Salters knows basketball. The "Bo" referred to of course is Bo Jackson, the multi-sport Heisman trophy winning athlete who played professional baseball and football. Bo may have been a pro at what he did, but you would have to look long and hard to find more of a pro than East Gadsden High School’s head basketball coach Dimitric Salters.
